Daily devotional: Live together with God

Scripture
For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.
1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 NIV

Observation
God made us and draws us to Himself in order that we would live together with Him, not only for eternity after we die, but also while we are still here on the earth! He has sweet life for us to experience as we walk with Him!

Application
Be fully devoted to God (1 Chronicles 28:9) through Christ Jesus my Lord! Be sanctified through and through (v.23). Be self-controlled, clothed with faith, love, and hope for salvation (v.8)!

Prayer
Lord, thank you for showing me Your salvation! Thank you for delivering me from spiritual death so that I can experience abundant life with You! I praise You and worship You, my Lord and my God! I submit to You and earnestly long for You. Please reveal Yourself to me and help me to always follow You so that I don't miss out on what You have planned for me. I love you!
