What Has He Done For Me Lately?

Unfortunately there are people in this world that use a ratio system to determine how nice to be to others. The base formula is this: niceness is directly proportional to the time between now and the last thing you did for me. In other words, what have you done for me lately…

Life is fast. Things happen fast and sometimes it is easy to lose sight of who is in control. Sometimes life is bad. Bad things happen to good people and sometimes things pile on so much that it is easy to lose sight of who is in control. When we lose sight of who is in control we sometimes also lose sight of God in things. It becomes easier and easier to miss the magnificence of God in our lives and in the world around us. Then we forget what it is that He has done for us:

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. (Eph 2:14-18 NIV)

He is our peace…

He destroys the barrier between us…

He reconciled us to God…

He brings us together…

Those are just a few of the things contained in this passage. I’d encourage you to reflect on it today and feel what it is that God has done for us. He has done so much for us even though we deserve so little…

Grace and Peace,

J

  1. That is so true. It is so easy to ask “what have you done for me lately.” But then again, when I really think about it, with God it is more of a “what haven’t you done for me lately” sort of thing. And yet, I still think it the fist statement. Foolish selfish mind.

    • I agree 100%! Then I think about what have I done for HIM lately and get really depressed!! Thank you for continuing to be an encouragement for me here. I appreciate you stopping by and commenting!
