Christ, Who Existed from the Beginning

I am writing to you who are mature in the faith
    because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning.
I am writing to you who are young in the faith
    because you have won your battle with the evil one.

1 John 2:13 NLT

Excerpted  from 2031 Names of God: Transform Your Life as You Get to Know God in New Ways

How was your Christmas? I  pray it was blessed.

Meditate on this name today. What does it mean to you today that Christ existed from the beginning?

Blessings on you as you finish out 2017 and prepare for a new year.

Here’s what one of the readers of The Surprising Joy of Exploring God’s Heart had to say.

“I’ve always found great joy in exploring God’s unique identity and have studied it often. But this book has opened my eyes in new ways to appreciate who He is, and to love Him more than ever. Each day is a heart-warming adventure as I come to know Him more, and examine my relationship with Him in new ways.”

Eternal Life, Which was with the Father and Has Appeared to Us

The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us.

1 John 1:2 NIV

Excerpted  from 2031 Names of God: Transform Your Life as You Get to Know God in New Ways

Meditate on this name. Ask the Lord to reveal what He wants you to see from it today.

Blessings on you as you get to know God, Gaylyn Williams, author of The Surprising Joy of Exploring God’s Heart: A Daily Adventure with 365 of His Names.

Here’s what my dad said when he read 2031 Names of God:

“This book (2031 Names of God) is beyond amazing! What a treasure! I’ve considered myself a serious student of Scripture for 60 years, but had no idea of the richness of God’s revelation about who He is. This book will be a companion to my Bible reading and devotional times from now on, as I come to appreciate even more God’s rich character.”

Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he,SJ Journal front cover

I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you;

I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

Isaiah 46:4

Excerpted  from The Surprising Joy of Exploring God’s Heart: A Daily Adventure with 365 of His Names

This book has an accompanying journal. Get a free sample of both at the link above.

Steps on Your Journey to Know God More Intimately:

  • Some of the definitions of sustain are support, provide for, maintain and encourage.
  • God is the One who holds us up and keeps us going. Look at the verses below to see how God sustains us.
  • Psalm 3:5: “I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me.”
  • Psalm 41:3: “The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.”
  • See also Nehemiah 9:21; Psalm 54:4; 55:22.
  • In what ways have you seen God sustain you?
  • In what ways do you need the Lord to sustain you?
  • When I was doing a single-parent family ministry, it was exhausting. I taught weekly classes, made meals for single parents, had a food bank, did one-on-one ministry, plus raised my own sons on my own. I became weary. During that time, the Lord sustained me. He held me up, encouraged me and provided for me.
  • Thank God that He will sustain you throughout your life—to your old age and gray hairs!

A Prayer for You:

Thank You, Lord, that You are the One who sustains me. You encourage me, support me and provide for me. Thank You that You made me, will carry me, sustain me and rescue me even to my old age. That is so comforting. Help me to remember this throughout all my days.

Blessings on you as you get to know God,

Gaylyn Williams, co-author Keys to Joy: How to Unlock God’s Gift of Lasting Happiness

Bob Creson,  President/CEO of Wycliffe Bible Translators USA, says about Keys to Joy:

“John records a wonderful statement made by Jesus, “I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! (John 15:11 NLT)  Jesus wants our joy to overflow.  What are these things that Jesus spoke of?  In this book, Keys to Joy,  Ken and Gaylyn Williams, the father-daughter writing team, do us a favor by reminding us of the things that lead to joy in the Christian life.  Based on the study of God’s Word, the contents of this book will lead the reader to a greater sense of who God is, and a deep abiding peace in the One who loves us and wants a relationship with his children.
