THE FULL GIFTS OF OUR CREATOR NEVER CEASE

“Dear Heavenly Father: We do heartily thank You for teaching us that You are a complete God. You are a glorious Lord who watches our steps as well as our stops…Amen”

“Lord thank You for each hour of need:
I praise You as my heart You feed,
You cover my years with riches free
Then lift my heart to feel your glee
To spread my Jesus in men’s life
To let His love replace their strife.”

Oh how many great needs arise where our true God holds our hands and leads each of us to find the desired daily peace we need. As we prepare programs and arrange plans
for every specific day, we discover that we are never alone.. God has truly recreated us in Christ Jesus in order to be ready to listen and absorb from Him.
In our faith, He has granted us our easy stride for every hour: Then planted His wisdom deep in us to direct our pace. Hallelujah…

Proverb 16: 9 NIV enlightens us with this deep God-given fact:
“In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps”

Here is a story in my life, that keeps me always praising and thanking God about the power of His attention to our stops. It never leaves my mind. This fine story is huddled in my heart as though saved on a file to which I refer, every time I sense someone else’s need. I have learnt to await the Lord’s sweet and loving attention in every step I take for His great service. I never decide anything before praying that the Holy Spirit of God would lead my mind-- before my footsteps--- in the right direction. ..Amen

This story is about our Polish neighbor Maria in Africa. She was an example of full trust and victory in her life as a Christian. She was an amazing lady who loved the Lord immensely—and had a lifestyle of complete trust and worship to her Savior.

Yet one day, Maria showed signs of that subtle enemy, Dementia!
Before her condition deteriorated and worsened, we fasted with her and sought our heavenly Father for help with all our might

God’s help came through a small, red booklet which we gave out freely: Its cover pictured two persons. One on the upper part of the book cover and the other on the lower part; both persons holding telephone handsets with the black wire between the two.
The Title read: “TALK TO GOD, HE ANSWERS. ”
The lord showed us to share several of these books with her, and ask her to place them in various parts of her home.

We prayed fervently that, during the trances of hard, distressing oblivion of her surroundings, the Holy Spirit would remind Maria to call upon Jesus-- as much as her condition would permit her…
So God answered our request and granted her continuous triumph in her Savior
Hallelujah! .

Let us join Isaiah in 64:4 saying, “Let us trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord is the Rock eternal”

“Oh Lord our God of all glorious and fully comforting gifts on this earth: I pray that our trust in You our Savior may never falter but will always meet Your expectations …for Your own children, here on earth.”…AMEN

This is a nice devotion. The scriptures go nicely with your message.

My only suggestion might be to work on the transitions a bit. It felt as though you went abruptly from one thought to the next.

The prayer was absolutely beautiful. I thought it was a clever way to make your point about prayer being important by starting with a prayer and ending with one. This subtle message grabbed my attention and reminded me my day should be filled with prayer.

This is a charming testimony to the goodness of God, and the devotional aspect of the writing really lends to pointing your reader to God's riches of His truths and love.

This was very special. To see Maria's dedication to the Lord, to basically plan ahead her trust and devotion to Him for a time when she would be challenge mentally, spoke volumes to me. This was well written and enjoyable from beginning to end.
