"Show thy marvelous loving kindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, Psalm 17:7
IN JESUS TODAY!
Early in the morning a little child enters a classroom and presents to their favorite teacher an apple, it will be the apple of their eye, to be treasured throughout the day as a gift remembered from a very special child. In the same way God has set you front and center in his hand, and you are acknowledged as the apple of his eye. All day long that apple will sit on the desk of that teacher and many will see it's shining glory! All day long that apple will touch the teacher’s heart. And it is the same with God, the appreciation for the faith that you have becomes a loud proclamation, for all to know that you are special and you are loved by the Most High God! You are loved and what you do for Jesus is appreciated! Today this apple is about you! Did you know that Jesus loves apples? Listen to his heart about this, "Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? I raised thee up under the apple tree:" Song of Solomon 8:5a Jesus shelters you from the floods of life. He sets you apart and protects you with his loving kindness, as we read, "Set me as a seal upon thy heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is as strong as death!" Song of Solomon 8:6a
Friend, Jesus loves you!
"That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments." Psalm 78:7
