The world’s gone all kinds of crazy, hasn’t it?

Maybe you haven’t even been alive for two decades, but you’ve seen massive changes in politics, education or culture. It can feel kind of overwhelming. Nothing feels sure or reliable.

But God!

In Psalm 46:10 (http://bit.ly/2vABha5) He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.’

Breathe a little deeper and slower today, and remember that He is and always will be the Creator and King of the universe. Even amidst chaos He reigns, and holds you in the palm of His hand.

In Jeremiah 31:33-34 (http://bit.ly/36hWDMo), God says: ‘I will put My instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be My people For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know Me already And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins.’

It’s incredible that the God who spoke out the stars and knows how many grass blades grow on this planet – He finds us, claims us as His own, loves us, forgives us, and tells our hearts who He is – no matter who we are.

Let’s thank Him today.

Together for JOY.

God gives joy to his people as they worship and serve Him together. David wrote a song about this in Psalm 122:1-9 (http://bit.ly/2n3Kad4).

Actually, the song is about Jerusalem, but the city is a picture of happy community. David rejoices with those who want to worship God (v 1). He sees Jerusalem’s buildings built closely together as a picture of unity (v 3). Then he prays for peace for everyone in the city (v 6). For the sake of his peers and friends, he starts to work for peace (v 8).

Don’t travel solo.
Joy is found travelling together with God’s people.

Restored for JOY.

You know like when you’re totally desperate for something and then it happens? You just can’t explain that feeling to others.

A songwriter tried to do that in psalm 126:1-6 (http://bit.ly/2n5gYCk). His community struggled through a really long, tough time. They were desperate. Suddenly, God changed everything. The songwriter says it was like they were dreaming an amazing dream. Their mouths were filled with real gut laughter.

God loves to give this kind of joy when He restores us. It’s like the sweetest dream made real. If you need to, turn back to God and let Him restore you.
