 Day 39


And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself and became obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
Philippians 2:8

My child, do you long for greater service or more appreciation? Remember that joy comes from My applause. Those who serve Me humbly and patiently will receive their due reward. When you humble yourself before Me, I will lift you up and set you in places you never dreamed were possible. I gave My all for you with no regrets. And one day, you will hear My "Well done" in person.

Heaven was at Your disposal, Lord, yet You humbled Your-self and came to earth. You exchanged a crown of glory for a wreath of thorns. You traded a royal robe for my own filthy rags. You gave up kingship for Sonship. You gave up life for death. I owe everything to You, Lord.


The applause of God is all that matters.
