Daily Devotional from Pastor Mary 6-14-21

Galatians 6:2

The Lord looks down in love, bending over heaven’s balcony.
    God looks over all of Adam’s sons and daughters,
    looking to see if there are any who are wise with insight—
    any who search for him, wanting to please him.

I was blessed to be able to spend the last few days enjoying the beach with friends. The Lord knows when we need to rest and recharge; I needed it. My favorite time was sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee and enjoying the early morning awakenings. The birds had started their singing, a gentle breeze was blowing, the waves were rhythmically lapping the shore, and my coffee was even more tasty than usual. From the balcony, I could see down the beach looking north and south. The canopies were going up along the shoreline and groups of people were gathering to enjoy the day. I was perched in just the right spot to observe it all.

In our passage today, the Apostle Paul reminds us God looks down over heaven’s balcony; he see everything going on in his world and in the lives of his children. The eyes of the Lord go to and fro searching for those who hearts desire him; he looks for those who seek his wisdom and come with the goal of receiving from him. As you go about your day, I pray you have an awareness of God’s tremendous love for you and that you will seek to serve the Lord with your very life, because you have placed your faith in his pure unfailing love.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for looking over my life from the vantage point of glory. Impart to me the wisdom and insight that only you can give. May my life please you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
