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.
A little boy asked his father, "Dad,
what does God think about?"
What a question? After all, if God knows everything - past, present
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
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
moment when He pulls His fretting, fearful child into His arms and
"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
sings a tender lullaby.
Jesus taught us to pray, "Our Father which art in
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
on His mind."
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

He is Praying for You
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!
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
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.
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
those who come to God through Him, since
to make intercession for them." -
