It inspires people to view their circumstances and their faith in Christ from fresh vantage points. It reveals the ways our unchanging God works His transformation into the world. He frequently uses astounding and unexpected methods to demonstrate His love, power, and trustworthiness.

This devotional answers questions like:

  • What can we do when our faith feels like it’s only half of a mustard seed?
  • Does Jesus really love me?
  • How can we move from fear to faith?
  • Does God really transform our difficulties into our testimony?
  • What invitation does God offer us, and how can we RSVP?

Our Heavenly Father really does make a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert!

    Day one: It’s such a profound thought – it’s not about whether Jesus accepts us but whether we open our hearts to accept Him. It’s a unique invitation to a friendship beyond anything we’ve ever known or will know. Imagine having Jesus as a friend, a savior, and a guide in life – it’s mind-blowing!

    And you’re so right, Lora Avery, about how He wants to transform our lives. It’s not just about turning away from the negatives, but it’s this beautiful exchange for hope, forgiveness, and love. He’s offering us this incredible gift, no strings attached; all we have to do is accept it.

    I love how you pointed out the opportunity that Judas missed. It makes you think. We have this chance to embrace what he missed out on. It’s about gratefully accepting what’s offered to us despite our imperfections. It’s a reminder that we’re all worthy of this love and grace.

    What a way to start your devotional! If this is only day one, I can’t wait to see what the next 39 days have in store for me.
