Daily in Your Presence - Jan. 19

Day 19


"I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. 

He will come in and go out, and find pasture."

John 10:9

My child, remember that a gate provides both protection and freedom. It will give you helpful boundaries and keep the enemy at bay. But it will also grant you entrance to sweet, refreshing pastures. I have given you the key.  I am that gate. Come, and find rest for your soul.

You laid down Your very life for me, Lord, as a gateway to heaven. In You I find rest, hope, comfort, and joy. Why should I look for greener pastures? Everything I desire is found in You. I love You, Lord.


God's limits on our freedom are only opportunities to trust Him more.
