Does Christ stand over the rest?

Thoughts come in the quietness. God reminds us of what is real. Because Christ is the greatest gift any of us have received, when we are not given other gifts, we are not crushed. On the other hand, when we are given other gifts besides Christ, those things do not become the pinacle of our existance. Christ is the only One who encompasses all our heart.

Enjoy the gifts you’re given in their time

Whatever gifts from God you’ve got lined up in your life at present, know that each one is something that God in His grace has stored up for you. He knows you so well that He can and does select just the right season/occation specific gifts to scatter throughout your life.

Now more than likely you have been finding something wrong with His gifts lately. Maybe they’re not new enough, or maybe they’re just too new for you. But the likelihood of God’s gifts changing appearances is not a bad thing.

Whether or not things look a little different today, God will take you beyond the packaging to grace in its purest form. Regardless of positive or negative feelings, God is keeping you from getting bored with His gifts and He is increasing your spiritual sensitive to what He’s doing. These things are especially important in light of how incredible grace is.

What God has given you on hand today is an inheritance that needs to be exhausted now. This is all you can do in this moment — besides praying for more appreciation for grace in the days to come!
