There isn’t a woman alive who doesn’t like free stuff. We all love freebies, unless you live in a primitive tribe in some distant land. But even then, maybe the idea of a free sculpted clay pot or a great deal on hand-made jewelry would make even a villager woman leap for joy. From buy one get one free boxes of cereal at your nearest grocery store, to free movie tickets if you register on a particular website, God loves His daughters so much that He created things that are free. We even find that we get upset if we make a purchase and someone later tells us that the particular item went on sale for 85% off the sale price. We can feel upset because we missed a great deal. We even have professional coupon clippers who have taken the world by storm. They are so good at their craft that they can walk into a store, armed and dangerous with their coupon holders in hand, and purchase $500 worth of items for $10. They are serious about saving money and finding great deals. God loves His daughters so much that He gave us His Holy Spirit to help us know what has been freely given to us. He takes couponing to a whole different realm. If you are prayerful, are studying your Bible, and have a listening ear, the Holy Spirit of God can direct you and show you your purpose in life. He can show you how to prosper in these rough economic times. He can show you that the guy you’re dating isn’t right for you and can lead you to the man you need wrapped in what you want! He can even show you how to use your new ipad, how to build a successful business, how to raise your children, how to be a true Betty Crocker in the kitchen, and how to make your marriage Song of Solomonish. There’s unlimited wisdom and knowlegde that is freely given to you as a daughter of the King. All things that pertain to life and godliness is already yours sister girl. It’s already inside of you awaiting your discovery. Don’t miss out on the kind of life God destined for you to live! Get what’s freely yours!
“And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.” 1 Corinthians 2:12 (NLT)
My Awesome Father,
You love me so much that created free things just for me. Much more than free items at the store and great deals, You gave me Your wonderful Holy Spirit to live in me and show me what You have made available to me. I don’t want to miss out on the kind of life You destined for me to live. Help me to keep a listening heart and a ready mind to lay hold of what You have put in front of me to receive. Help me not to waste this awesome grace to see what’s been freely given. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
A sincere thank you to our Daughters of the King Daily Devotional Writers.
