Daily in Your Presence - Oct. 22

Day 296


By the meekness and gentleness of Christ,

I appeal to you.

2 Corinthians 10:1

My child, is My gentleness such a difficult character trait to mirror? Perhaps it is because you confuse it with weakness. I only reflect My Father's personality. If the awesome God of the universe, who has all power and all might, could still care about the fall of one sparrow or hug a child to His heart with the tender love of a mother, can you not believe gentleness is a virtue? Let Me fill you with My gentleness. It's impossible on your own.

The gentleness of Jesus is not just for babes, but for every one of God's children. Lord, You treat each one of us as a fragile flower, a delicate blossom to be handled with care. Thank You for Your gentle and personal attention.


Jesus is God's personal hug to us.
