Father, I am grateful for Your presence. In every single circumstance in life, You are with me – guiding, directing, broadcasting Your love in and through me. I am truly blessed!
1 Peter 1:17 (<<click here)
It is not unusual in life to find ourselves in lineups; at work, in school, in families, on the playground, in church, there are people we are comfortable being around and there are those we tend to avoid. And the same goes for how people feel about us, some people like us and others could care less if they ever saw us again. We all play the game of favorites.
But not You, Lord, Peter says here that the “heavenly Father…has no favorites.” He will “judge or reward” us fair and square “according to what we do.”…and that is really a very sobering thought. We can pull the wool over some people’s eyes. We can be fake in our interactions with others and they may never realize it. But never with You. You see to the very core of our being. Nothing is hidden from You. Hebrews 4:13 says,
“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God . Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to who we are accountable.”
Lord, we are only fooling ourselves if we think we can hide anything from You. May I be the real deal in all I say and do. You see me for what I am. Help me to be genuine with others, as well. And when I struggle in liking some people less than others, may I see them through Your eyes of love. Help me to be like You. Amen
