This devotional has a quote written by Charles Swindoll.
I’ll admit, I’ve sat down to do this devotional, get a part of it done, and then get distracted. I have a very busy weekend, with events with school, family, and friends. Which is testing my focus. I’m about 3/4 through my devotional playlist and am just now typing this sentence. In fact, I haven’t really read the devotional yet. I’ve skimmed it, twice. So. I’m calling for a redo. Yes, it would be easy to delete this paragraph and not admit my faults, but I’m a human who fails. So this is my failure today, I am not focused.
Whew was that redo required. So glad I called myself out. ….
So this devotional could not be more relevant.
We live in a world full of fears and scary situations. Take the most recent terror attack in Manchester. Kids at a concert were attacked. It makes it hard to a person to want to leave their home. But even that is dangerous, I just read an article where a kid was killed at his kitchen table from a ricochet bullet. Things just aren’t safe. They aren’t. Between anger and hate and extremist groups, this world is unsafe. BUT, and there is a but.
BUT God provides us with many things, including courage. He will comfort us in the bad times, and keep us safe when we ask. He’s our Father, our protector, our savior. No matter what trouble you find yourself in, he’s there with you. Simple as that.
We have a guest teacher right now for our Wednesday night services, he’s doing a teaching series on prayer. But the thing I’ve walked away with right now is the sheer amount of anything God will give to his children. It’s pretty much a blank check, to quote him directly. I limit what God does for me. That is a pretty hard punch to take. But it’s true. I don’t ask, I don’t get. It’s the same for anything. When I’m in trouble, if I don’t turn to God, then I’m limiting him. He’s our courage, our safe place. That is what the world has forgotten.
Turn to God when you’re scared, you’re hurting, you are in need, and he’ll be there. End of story. He will handle all your troubles and woes.
Do you limit God? Do you turn to him for all your needs?
