Daily Devotional: October 17

Clothed With Love, Ruled By Peace:

The life I have called you to is different from the existence that people experience here on earth. You are still a mortal human being living on the same planet, but you are different. I have adopted you into My family, and I chose you for better things. Because you have been so deeply loved by Me, let My love overflow from your life and permeate everyone you meet. Listen to people when they speak, and see if you can detect their true heart. Understand that every soul you encounter is searching for what you have found, though they have yet to realize it.

Within you is a treasure of infinite value that resides in an earthen vessel. You can bring peace and comfort to the troubled soul. You have the power to give hope to people in a way that nothing in this world can equal. I have placed My Spirit in you, and My hands are yours now. Reach out and welcome the lost, the broken, the misdirected. Show them a love and acceptance that will change their life.

Make Me known by the way you treat people, and let the peace I have given you be imparted to everyone you meet. Be clothed with love and ruled by peace.

Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.  ~Colossians 3:14-15 (NLT)

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.  ~Matthew 5:14-16

You are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness. ~Romans 2:19  (RCR)

You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.  ~1 Peter 2:9 (RCR)

What an incredible privilege You have given me, Lord…to know that You have sent me into this world with Your word and the love that You delivered by Your death and resurrection be given to all people. I am in awe that someone like me could carry such a great responsibility.

How I thank You, Jesus, for placing Your Light inside me and giving me the authority to tell people Your Gospel. I see now that the purpose of my life is to be the deliverer of God’s love to the lost, the broken, and the hurting.

I live each day around many people who feel alone and broken. They long for meaning in their life, and no one knows the struggles they endure.

Help me to reach out with a few kind words and a message of hope that You care and long to become a part of their life and give them hope and contentment.
