You are God’s Living Legacy

7 Aug

God’s Word: Romans 9:1-33   (The Message)

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

Every human living is My legacy to the world. You matter to God Whether you acknowledge Me or not—you are Mine.  I have chosen to allow you free will to choose to go your own way or follow in My path.  Those who ignore me, I continue to love, to gift with sunshine and rain, good fortune and sorrow, everything I give to those on My path.  However, there is a huge difference deep in the soul of those who have chosen My path.  My abiding presence, My nearness in plenty or want, in sickness or in health, in joy or in sorrow, and peace in the midst of every storm is the crowning glory for those walking with Me.

As My living legacy, you have responsibilities to care for the planet and for one another.  As I observe the happenings on planet earth My heart is so pained.  Selfishness is rampant!  Nations are at war with one another and killing innocent people mercilessly.  War is so barbaric—what you resort to when you cannot get what you want any other way so you try to take it by brute force.  And the human trafficking that is happening like an epidemic.  Once sin gets hold of a person’s heart mercy goes out the window.  Even in the midst of these terrible things, My people are serving as My ambassadors of love and mercy.

There are no fence riders in life.  You are either working on the side of truth and justice or you are fighting it.  Even in the midst of the worst evil ever, I will be with those who have drawn near to Me through Jesus.  I am able to take the worst of circumstances and bring about peace deep in the heart of those suffering.  As My living legacy you are my ambassadors as long as you draw breath.  Do not curse your tormentors—follow Jesus example and pray for them.   So live that you are creating a legacy worth following for your descendants.

God’s Question: Is the world better because you have lived?

God’s Promise: All things work together for good for those who are living out My calling on their lives.

My Prayer to God:

I Praise You for Your peace in all of life storms.

I am Sorry I am not more of an ambassador or peace.

Thank You for Your forgiving love.

Please Help Me honor You by the way I live my life.
