He Calls. He Says. He Is.

I have heard it said that Scripture is God's love letter. I opened it today with that thought in mind.

The following is what unfolded.... 
            'Here I stand, knocking at the door. If anyone hears Me calling and opens the door, I will enter his house and have supper with him, and he with Me.'(Revelation 3:20)'I am the Alpha and the Omega, the One Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty!' (Revelation 1:8)'Every hair of your head has been counted, so do not be afraid of anything.'(Matthew 10:30)'For I know well the plans I have for you... plans for your welfare, not for woe! Plans to give you a future full of hope. When you call Me, when you go to pray to Me, I will listen to you.' (Jeremiah 29:11-12)
     'Whoever drinks the water I give him will never be thirsty; no, the water I give him shall become a fountain within him, leaping up to provide eternal life.' (John 4:14) 
     'I Myself am the bread of life. No one who comes to Me shall ever be hungry, no one who believes in Me shall ever thirst.' (John 6:35)
     'I am the true vine.' (John 15:1)
     'I am the good shepherd.' (John 10:14)
     'I am the resurrection and the life.' (John 11:25)
     'I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.' (John 14:6)
     'And you, Who do you say that I am?...' (Mark 8:29)

  1. Wonderful Scriptures you chose. I am reading the devotionals in Jesus Calling, which also has your idea of Jesus speaking to us.

  2. This was beautiful, Nancy. I have known these past few short years that he calls me. More than I've ever known in my entire life. He keeps tugging on me and I have no choice but to follow. I marvel so much at this. Why me, I think sometimes. Those years long ago when I thought I was a Christian were just floundering around trying to touch God. And now he constantly touches me and I am amazed.

    1. Aileen, thank you for sharing this. I, too, often wonder "why me?" He knows what He is doing, and why, and when. Amazing huh?! Thanks be to God!
