On Eagles’ Wings
What does God want more than anything? He wants you.
He loves you and He wants you to spend all of eternity with Him.
He desires fellowship with you and wants to give you everything you need for every circumstance of life.
One of the great demonstrations of God’s desire for His people is found in the Old Testament when He heard their cries of anguish when they were oppressed by the Egyptians. God did not ignore their hardship. Instead, he heard their cry and came to their rescue.
He delivered them from the hands of the Egyptians. Here’s how God described His response to His people in their suffering —
God not only rescued His people, but carried them to safety, and brought them to Himself. He wanted His people safe and secure. And He wanted His people close to Him.
God has accomplished an even greater rescue of us. He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:13). When Jesus died on the cross, He made it possible for us to be forgiven of our sins and to be given an eternal inheritance. We now have the blessed hope of eternal life and fellowship with our Lord forever.
But make no mistake, this gift is not only future, but it is also something to be enjoyed even now. Jesus wants an intimate relationship with you and fellowship with you.
Here’s how He describes His desire for a relationship with you —
So today, dear friend, open the door of your heart to Jesus, and enjoy eternal fellowship with Him as your Lord and as your friend.
Dear Lord, thank You for rescuing us and loving us. We open the door of our heart and our lives to you today, to enjoy fellowship and friendship with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
