"If you love me, keep My commandments~  John 14:15, NKJV

"
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved."  ~  John 3:16, 17, KJV

WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT

To Feel Need Is to Receive Grace

“Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”  ~  Jeremiah 33:3

“No obstacle within yourself can restrict My grace. I use many vessels while they are struggling with their failures; for in their conscious sense  of need, they are more yielded to Me than they who think themselves to be without flaw.

To feel need is to receive grace. The mighty things which you do not comprehend are the miraculous things I do for you and through you in your acknowledged times of seed..”   [Feb 15  ~  “One-Minute Meditations” - Come Away My Beloved  ~  by Francis J. Roberts]

Remember that whenever you are struggling to "call on the Lord". He promises to answer and show us great and mighty things. There is no obstacle that He can not conquer. This week as you pray ask God for the strength to remember to always call on Him.

Your church leaders are praying for you,
