I love my devotion time….like I really seriously love it. My daily prayer is to always have more time for God than anything else, unfortunately it doesn’t always turn out like that. I’m currently reading Dr. Charles Stanley’s Everyday in His Presence daily devotional. Today’s hit home so much I had to share.
“I am the Lord, I do not change; therefore you are not consumed.” ~ Malachi 3:6
Do you trust God to be your security today? Do you keep your eyes on Him instead of the world situation – the country’s mounting debt, the increasing political and spiritual division among people, or the constant threat of terrorist attack?
If you take your eyes off God and focus on what’s happening in the world, you’ll find plenty to be insecure and anxious about. The earth is in upheaval. The painful signs of the end seem to be coming faster and faster.
But we can be secure in the knowledge that we are anchored to our unchanging, omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient God – the Sovereign of this universe. He knows our hearts, what we need, and what we face. And He is in ultimate control.
Friend, we can’t change the world, but we can trust the Father to guide us and help us make the right decisions in our relationships, our finances, and our vocations. So no matter what happens today, trust Him. He alone sees the future and will keep you absolutely secure as you walk in the center of His will.
Dr. Charles Stanley, Everyday in His Presence
Repeat this with me:
Praying for you friend, will you pray for me too? This world is an evil place but we can have peace because God has already conquered it.
