Because You are my portion. Psalm 73:26

    I never realized the profound power of the word “because”. This devotion will be reread many times today, to feed my soul and refuel my inner strength and resolve. Thank you!

    Roy, What a Great message! Because Jesus was obedient to the Father are sins were paid in full by his dying on the Cross. He loves us because he first choose us! What an Amazing Love!

    As I repeated these affirmations aloud to myself this morning, my heart was touched and encouraged by the Holy Spirit. Like “Sarah”, will reread them again today. We cannot afford as Christians to allow our hearts to become discouraged, and I’m thankful for all of the tools God provides for us through His faithful servants!

    Thankyou Roy for this reassuring message that no matter how I feel or what others say to me or about me, it is God’s that really matters. He sees me and is for me.

    Just what I needed to read tonight, so inspiring and uplifting, and a reminder that no matter what happens to us, or how discouraged we might feel at times, when our world seems to be spinning out of control, the love of God is always with us. We may drift away, be forgetful, faithless at times, but our God is always faithful to draw us back to Him time after time.
