Breakfast with Jesus Everyday is a collection of meditations and thoughts pertaining to our daily walk with Jesus. They are based on select verses from God's Word. 




God's Tender Love 


A little boy asked his father, "Dad, what does God think about?" 

What a question? After all, if God knows everything - past, present and 

future - what does He have to think about? 

Would it surprise you to know that God thinks about you and me? 

That's what it says in Psalm 40:17. "But I am poor and needy; yet the 

Lord thinketh upon me." God thinks about us personally and lovingly. 

And He has a Father-heart. This is revealed in Zephaniah 3:17. 

This verse gives us a picture of God's tender heart as it speaks of 

a Father calming His child's fears. It beautifully illustrates the blessed 

moment when He pulls His fretting, fearful child into His arms and says, 

"It's OK. I'm right here." 

God rejoices over His children "with singing". Here is the picture 

of a parent enjoying the moment as His child rests in His arms and He 

sings a tender lullaby. 

Jesus taught us to pray, "Our Father which art in heaven." 

Think about it. Do you know God as your parent, as your Father? 

Do you bring Him your fears and your fretting, and allow Him to hold 

you in His arms and cover you with His love? Don't ever forget "we are 

always on His mind." 


"The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. 

He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with 

His love. He will rejoice over you with singing." 

Zephaniah 3:17

He is Praying for You 



Sometimes our prayers are so weak, and our problems so big 

that we can't find the right words, and then we say, Oh, that we had 

someone to pray for us! 

Let not your heart be troubled, for Romans 8:34 brings good news: 

Christ Jesus is at the right hand of God, and is interceding for us. Jesus 

Himself is praying for us this very moment! 

Jesus told Simon Peter, "I have prayed for you that your faith may 

not fail." That is why He prays for us also. Jesus knows when we are 

going to be tempted, and His prayers then are that we'll be strong, and 

that our eyes may be opened to see our bad situations. Jesus knows 

when we are discouraged and ready to give up. Then His prayers 

produce encouragement, and our faith is bolstered. 

We little know what we owe to our Savior's prayers. When we get 

to heaven, we will look back upon the way the Lord led us and see how 

His prayers kept us from going astray, or ending up in a mess! We will 

see how His prayers for us made our faith grow. 

Great Intercessor, thank you for including me in Your prayers, for 

praying that my faith today may not fail. You are all the resource I 

need to make that happen. 

"Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost 

those who come to God through Him, since He ever 

lives to make intercession for them." - Hebrews 7:25
