God Delights In What We Will Become

January 27, 2016

“Until we realize that there are no legitimate longings in our souls beyond his power and intention to satisfy, all change is cosmetic. But as we grasp how tenderly committed he is to our well-being, we feel more inclined to obey. Good urges become stronger.

And God delights in the whole process. He delights in our status as forgiven children welcomed to the dining table, and he delights in what we will become as we eat more of the food he provides.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 14

Questions for Reflection:
• Consider an area of struggle you’ve been facing this week.
• In what part of that challenge do you experience the greatest difficulty trusting God’s compassionate devotion to your well-being?
• Bring that area of doubt before the Lord and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what the Father longs to provide for you and to bring to life in you.
