Daily Encouragement – 7/23

July 23

            With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith. 2Thessalonians 1:11

            My faith prompts me to write encouraging words to you, and I readily agree that all that I do is done by His power and not my own. My intentions—my purpose—is good and I want every act I commit to fulfill God’s calling for my life. That said, I have a long way yet to travel. I hope that some of you will pray for me now and then, so God may count me worthy.

            I have made the statement many times, “I am just the pencil.” I do not write these encouragements to you from a knowledgeable point of view, because the reality of the situation is I have little knowledge of God’s word and His principles. What I do have is a sincere desire to encourage others to love Him.

            If I say something you disagree with, please don’t be offended. Chances are, if you were to explain your difference of opinion to me, we would quickly come to an agreement of some kind based on our love of God. That, my friends, is the one thing I am quite sure of—God’s love for us and His desire to be loved by us.

            When we focus on that, He will fill in all the blanks.
