Imitate Him

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children” Ephesians 5:1, ESV.

My sisters, when we say to ourselves, God loves them, but I will not. God favors them, but I will not. God is honoring them, but I will not. This is not imitating our Father. This is resisting Him. We are to imitate Him as dear children. No one who resists and rejects Him truly loves Him, but we love Him and are called according to His purpose. As His daughters, we love who and what He loves, hate what He hates, and favor His cause. As we learn to imitate Him, we will see it strengthen our character and enrich our lives.

Prayer: Father God, I pray you deal with anything in me that’s resisting you. Help me to love who you love, hate what you hate, honor what you honor, and favor your righteous cause. I am your child and you deeply love me. Help me imitate you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 2 Chronicles 16:9)

    Father, Lover of our souls and Lifter of our heads!!! Thank You for Your faithful instructions of how we can be more like You as Your children. Thank You, for putting Your Spirit in us so that we can carry out this instruction to imitate You, Father. Thank You, that You haven’t left us to do this on our own. Help us, Father, to overcome as You have overcame the world. To be in the world, but not of it. 😭😭😭Helping us to be doers of Your Word and not hearers only, deceiving ourselves. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew a right Spirit in us with wanting to have a mind like You as well. May transformation take place in me daily that You will get the glory from my life.🙏🙏🙏

    1. Love covers a multitude of sin,I just walked through the longest time of my life with somebody ,who in the natural absolutely went beyond persecution,I kept praying for her ,I’d say Lord I love her.One day she said some things,….I said to her now that you are done,you are so much better than that.She has become like a sister to me.That catch her,things changed.Love believes the best of everybody.

  5. Jesus threw the moneychangers out the temple, He hates prosperity theology. He never said a word against a gay person tho. He spoke for the Samaritans so he hates republican racism. But no one wants to hear

  6. Let us daily read and believe the Word & renew our minds to imitate God! The devotions are always Bible based which I love. There is no need to put political comments , but keep it positive!
