Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Before the beginning, there was God! Before there was an earth, universe, or nature, there was Jesus! The Spirit was present before any created thing was made. God will exist after all created things on earth — except his human creations — are long gone. His power and presence hold our world, universe, and nature together. He is the sustaining force, the enabling power, and the generous preserver of life as we know it. So if he could provide us these things, and they are but a faint anticipation of what is yet to be, won't it be great to see him, just as he is, and share his glory with him!

My Prayer...

Thank you, Jesus, for your gracious providence this day. Thank you for creating this incredible world in which I live. You are worthy of all praise, honor, glory, and thanks! I look forward to the day, dear Lord, when I can worship you face to face and give thanks to our Father with you for his wonderful love. To you, and in your name, dear Jesus, I offer all my thanks and praise. Amen.
