How Close is God?
This devotional was written by Jim Burns
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; Do not be discouraged. —Deuteronomy 31:8
How close is God? God is closer than your breath and closer than your skin. Philippians 4:5 tells us to never forget the nearness of your God. How much does he care for you? Scripture reminds us:
He knows our names (John 10:3).
He numbers the hairs on our head (Matthew 10:30).
He counts the steps of our feet (Job 14:16).
He bottles the tears from our eyes (Psalm 56:8, RSV).
He holds our right hand in His hand (Psalm 73:23).
He supplies all our needs (Philippians 4:19).
- Memorize Deuteronomy 31:8.
- List five struggles in your life and then write out how today's devotional applies to each.
