January 13 – Sovereign Authority – Intimate Abba

The power and tenderness of our Sovereign God are inseparable manifestations of the way He leads, protects and cares for His children. God’s absolute authority and compassionate gentleness are intricately interwoven together in His loving guardianship over our lives.

To know and experience God’s fullest love for us we must trust and accept both. We must yield to God’s rule and be cradled in God’s care. And it is here that we will know our greatest intimacy with our Sovereign LORD. What a safe and beautiful place to be.

See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and His arm rules for Him…He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young.  Isaiah 40:10-11

Personal Reflections from Sylane :

Just read the devotional again and maybe even one more time after that. Then choose to-moment by moment-keep yourself in that safe and beautiful place. Where God is your Sovereign Authority and your Intimate Abba.

In love, peace and purposeful passion,
