Recovery - It's a God Thing-- July 11, 2010

 

 

July 11

Scripture focus: From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. Acts 17:26-27 NIV

One of the ways we reach out for God is by reading his word. Although God is not far from each one of us, when we live unconscious of his presence, we may miss not only knowing God but lose ourselves also.

You are not a random act of creation.

Your birth was not an accident - (I don't care what you mother tells you!).

 Knowing this should get our attention. At a minimum, it should freak us out. And according to the author of Acts (Luke), God did this so that we "would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him".

When you consider the care and attention that God gave to your creation, aren't you at least curious about what he was thinking?

It's in God's word where we discover the answer to this question.
