You Have God For That – Beloved Women – April 1, 2020
READ: “And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.” (Jeremiah 32:38 ESV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Sometimes the responsibilities of each day and to-do lists of tomorrow can consume us. School, work, marriage, kids, etc. They all require time and focus. With endless to-do lists tugging on our time, it’s easy to forget that you and I have a God who wants to be God over it all.
From the beginning of time, scripture records humanity as a forgetful people. Our attention is easily distracted. In God’s infinite grace, He continues to call us His children. He promises to be our God even when we forget.
In the situations that might make us stumble, He wants to be our Sustainer and Defender God. When we feel lonely, worried, anxious, or afraid, He wants to be our Comforter and Companion God. When we feel confused, He wants to be our Shepherd God.
When we stay close to God, all that He is, and all that He has will work for our good.
As we prepare for today, let’s return our minds to this God of grace and love. God will provide us with the perseverance we need for the day. We don’t have to muscle our way through never-ending demands when our Sovereign God has His grip on it all.
PRAY: Father God, unite my heart to serve and worship Your name above the noise in my day. Your word, Lord, reminds me that everything You require of me You also work in me. Help me remember that I am not tackling this life alone. I am your beloved child, and you are my Almighty God. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: What concerns can you release to God knowing He is your God over the situation?
SHARE: When we stay close to God, all that He is and all that He has will work for our good.
