Precious in HIS Sight

Precious in HIS Sight

CHRISTMAS––A time to remember and celebrate what God has done for us!

 

In John 1:12 it reads, “… all who receive Him (Jesus), to those who believe in His Name, He gives the right to become children of God.”

 

John 1:12…is WOW! The Son of God has made me a child of God. And if you have received Jesus and believe in His Name then The Son of God has made you a child of God. That is BIG GOOD NEWS! Let us just pause right there. Let us stop and think about this amazing truth. Let us be still for a few minutes and reflect on what this means.

 

Holy Spirit, Teacher, I pray You show us afresh just how big this BIG GOOD NEWS truly is! As we celebrate the Christ Child’s birth this Christmas Season reveal to us in deeper and deeper ways:

 

**The cost God paid in giving His one and only Son making it possible for us to receive the free gift of eternal life.

 

**The depth of God’s love in the incarnation to bridge the gap from heaven to earth so that when we die and leave earth we can go to heaven.

 

**That God reached out to us and became flesh––the Holy Child in all of our human-ness––so that we could be transformed wholly into the image of God.

 

CHRISTMAS! My heart is overwhelmed…and I worship Him:

“O, come let us adore Him. O, come let us adore Him. O, come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

For He alone is worthy. For He alone is worthy. For He alone is worthy, Christ the Lord.

Give Him all the glory. Give Him all the glory. Give Him all the glory, Christ the Lord.

Praise His Name forever. Praise His Name forever. Praise His Name forever, Christ the Lord.”

AMEN.

 

Recently Gary and I celebrated a Thanksgiving/Christmas with our family during Thanksgiving week. Gary and I were so excited that we counted down the days to our flight to Oklahoma. All our family was going to be together again after almost one year of being apart!

 

As I thought about how excited I was…thinking about being with our family…it caused me to think about Father God. I wonder if He is excited and looking forward to the day when all His Family will be together? Surely He is!

 

Christmas is proof! He gave His one and only Son to make it possible for us to be His Children!

 

And in Revelation 21:3-4,7 we catch a glimpse of Father God’s heart, “I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, ‘Look, God’s home is now among His people! He will live with them, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever…Look, I am making everything new!…and I will be their God, and they will be My children.'”

 

I can sense Father God’s excitement––FINALLY! PAH! Look at the words Father God uses: HOME. LIVE WITH THEM. GONE FOREVER ARE DEATH SORROW, CRYING, PAIN. EVERYTHING NEW! GOD WITH HIS CHILDREN! HOME!

 

Ahhh HOME. That is what Gary and I experienced with our family recently. We rented a cabin in Medicine Park, Oklahoma. It was a blessed time together making wonderful memories with Rex, Lanie, Luke, Angela and our six grandchildren. The Oklahoma Barretts would have liked some snow, however Gary and I sure enjoyed the 60-70 degree weather. But mostly we just enjoyed being together again, FINALLY!

 

Below is my Photo Blog…I’ve shared mostly pictures taken while we were with our family in Oklahoma…followed by the Precious In HIS Sight Scripture Prayer Calendar.

To the left is this month’s Scripture Prayer Calendar. Click on the Calendar and the Calendar opens BIGGER in a separate window so that you can read the scripture references easily.

Look up the verse for the day and turn it into a prayer. 

The Calendar has helped me, and many other people, faithfully pray for our loved ones day-after-day, month-after-month, year-after-year. 

I print my Calendar and keep it with my Bible. Feel free to print the Calendar, too.  

Join me as we pray for our loved ones…our Abba Father is listening. Plus His word says in James 5:16b, “The prayer of a righteous person (dad/mom, papa/grandma) is powerful and effective.” That’s a WOW verse!

 

I PRAY YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS SEASON

FILLED WITH HIS PRESENCE.

JESUS IS THE GREATEST PRESENT EVER GIVEN

COME LET US ADORE HIM…DAILY.

 

For thy Kingdom…In Jesus Name, Amen!
