TRUE NORTH: BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU – Day 3

Back to the new normal, and yet something hasn’t changed, true north! God’s Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path! God’s direction and purpose direct my path forward because He loves me. Even when change comes God remains the same! Even when change comes God will never leave us nor abandon us!

The devotional is described in the Bible App as follows: “God is so absolutely crazy about His children and wants to show His love in so many ways. It wasn’t until I was a father that I understood that crazy parental kind of love, and it gave me a perspective of how He feels for us. My perspective changed further when I began to raise a little girl, and the tenderness of my heart helped me to understand the tender side of God—a side that would do anything for us because He loves us.”


Scripture for Today’s Devotional:

‘Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” ‘

Genesis 1:26

‘For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. ‘

Ephesians 2:10

‘Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? ‘

1 Corinthians 3:16

‘Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. ‘

Revelation 3:20

Let’s be the dads who know that we were created in the image of God! Let’s be the dads who know that we are made in the likeness of God! Let’s be the dads who know to rule and be stewards of God’s creation where we are to rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground! Let’s be the dads who know we are God’s handiwork! Let’s be the dads who know that were were created to do good works! Let’s be the dads who know every morning that God has prepared good works for us to accomplish today! Let’s be the dads who know that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit and as such treat our bodies accordingly! Let’s be the dads who choose to live our lives in a way to glorify God as the temple of the Holy Spirit! Let’s be the dads who answer God’s knock on the door! Let’s be the dads who help others hear and answer the knock on the door to their hearts from God! Let’s be the dads who invite Jesus into our hearts and spend the rest of eternity with Him through an intimate relationship!

    • “You are created in the image of God. In the beginning, God created mankind in His image, bearing His likeness. You carry Imago Dei—the Image of God. Because of this, mankind is the most beautiful of all His creation—His masterpiece, the most special and significant thing to Him. Your value to Him doesn’t lie in what you’ve done or haven’t done for Him. You’re special because of who you are to God. In fact, you are so special to Him that He is willing to make you a temple of His Holy Spirit.”
    • “Just know, God desires to pick you up at 5:30 sharp, but it doesn’t take your best clothes, or your hair to be just right. It doesn’t take you being on your best behavior or earning His love. He just wants you to open the door and let Him truly see you. When He looks at you, He sees the most beautiful and special person, because of who you are. Because you are His workmanship. Because you are His. Because He loves you.”
