Devotional Tea 43: The Substance of my Religion

Scripture: 1 Corinthian 13:13 (NKJV)

"And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love."


"The whole substance of religion is faith, hope, and love... All things are possible to him who believes, they are less difficult to him who hopes, they are more easy to him who loves, and still more easy to him who perseveres in the practice of these three virtues."  ― Brother Lawrence.

I call these my three angels. They work miracles for me each and every day. Love covers all. My Father is love, and I am created in His image and likeness. I am created to love. I am created as love. I am love, just like my Father. Love is my default. I am perfect in love. Fear has rule over me.

Faith is my medium of communication. It connects my spiritual being with my human experience. I believe. I am a believer. I am not a doubter. I am open to God. I am open to possibilities. I  am to all things good. All good and perfect gifts come from my Father, in whom there is no shadow of turning.

I am a child of hope. I live from hope and in hope. Hope is my secret source. It enlightens my inside, shedding light on all I see and do. I believe in hope. I believe in possibilities. I believe in God.

Further Reading: James 1:17; 1 Chronicles 16:1-12; Proverbs 13:12.

Prayer: Lord, cause my heart to ever be established in the faith. You are my stay. Please ever be my stay.
