Today’s devotion centers on one word: WOW! This is a powerful word for the acronym for WOW is Wonderful Opportunities Waiting. This acronym is also given to our Bethlehem Endowment fund. It is our heart’s desire to leave a legacy for those who follow us to know the power and love of God. Our heart’s desire is that the ministries that bless God’s people will continue for years to come. God has showed us that it shall not appear what is yet to be. There are many blessings and rich opportunities that God has in store for us. Before reading further, simply say, “WOW. Wonderful Opportunities Waiting!” Ephesians 1:14 is our text today.
“The Spirit is God’s guarantee that He will give us the inheritance He promised and that He has purchased us to be His own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify Him.”
In this moving passage, Paul declares that a great inheritance has been given unto us. Paul knew first-hand about the power of God. God changed Paul’s life and he was no longer able to boast of his own righteousness. He had received the righteousness of God, which had purchased his redemption. He was compelled to give all glory and praise to God. God’s glory is revealed, as His purpose is made known unto us. Wonderful blessings await us, sealed by the Holy Spirit. They are promises that Our God has given to those who put their faith and trust in Him. Look back over your life to see where you were, and then look at your life and what you shall be. That is a reason to praise God. Thanks be unto God today for the wonderful gift of salvation. What does not yet appear, shall be.
