In a world filled with so many nations and people,
it’s easy to convince ourselves that God is way too busy to for our small struggles, our everyday concerns.
Even in my own life, I find things on my to-do list being pushed from today to tomorrow to the next day, so how in the world could God possibly remain intimately involved in all of our lives at the same time?
I love the words in Psalm 8 that say,
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your finger, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
I love that early in the history of man, people were already wondering the same thing.
How could God be mindful of and care for mankind in the midst of all of His creations,
the heavens, the moon, and the stars?
And yet He is.
He knows the number of hairs on our head.
He knows our coming and our going.
He knows our thoughts before we even think them.
He knows when we rise up and when lie down.
The devil would love to convince us that God is too busy, too preoccupied, too distant to truly know what we are facing in life.
He would love for us to live with a sense of “separateness” from God.
That’s his ultimate goal…………………to separate us from our Creator and Father.
God, however, through His Word, through prayer, through other Christians, and through nature longs to draw us daily closer and closer to Him.
He is right where you are this very second.
He is right where I am too.
And He cares about every single detail of your day.
He knows when your life is going great, and He knows when you are barely hanging on.
Today, invite Him into your good times and your bad times.
Allow Him to become your best friend.
Turn to Him first when you feel lonely
Turn to Him first when you feel sad.
Turn to Him first when you feel happy.
He is with you.
Nick’s favorite verse says it so beautifully.
Cling to it today.
God sees you hanging on, and He is incredibly mindful of you.
Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and courageous.
Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
