Closer than you think.

One of my favourite worship songs is Medley by Third Day (Check it out). In the first verse some of the words are:

“Were I to leave, where else would I go? The words of life and of truth You hold.All I want is love.I confess to this. I will take it, Lord.”

Isn’t that so wonderful? God holds the words of life. Why would you and I want to walk away from that?
Read Psalm 139 (https://bit.ly/2EfiANJ) – God is everywhere: why not say “hello to Him” and talk to Him.

He is right with you now, as you read this, wherever you are.

Knowing Him.

Have you ever thought about this question: How well do you know God now compared to a year ago?

The reason this is a good question to think about is because I believe each year that goes by – in fact: each day, week and month we CAN learn new things about God. What do you think?

That’s the point of a relationship. To grow deeper and closer.
So how can we grow closer to God? How can we get to know Him more?
It takes TIME.

Time in prayer
Time in worship
Time in His Word (the bible)
Time in His world (creation, the outdoors)

Read 2 Peter 3:18 – https://bit.ly/3jFT8oA

Can God be trusted?

I know the answer is YES.
Do you? How about your friends and family?

But how do we know we can trust God?
The answer: relationship with Him – the more I get to know Him the more I know I can trust Him.

Knowing God = trusting God.

When life gets tough, I can trust Him.
When things fall apart, I can trust Him.
When the world seems very upside down, I can trust Him.
With my future, I can trust Him.

When a virus hits the world and puts the people in lockdown and fills us with many questions – I can still trust Him.

Read Psalm 28:7(https://bit.ly/3boRNjn) and Romans 8:28 (https://bit.ly/2vHooLt).

God, her protector

We all know the story of Esther – the local Jewish beauty. She basically wins a beauty pageant and the big prize is marrying the King and becoming queen (Esther 2:2-4, https://bit.ly/34kRJzr). But the story is so much deeper than this. Her life, along with all her people, were in danger because they were Jewish. Haman, the king’s prime minister, was planning to annihilate all the Jews in Persia (Esther 3:8-9, https://bit.ly/3aM2axb).

Esther seeks God first for a plan of action, and God comes through in a miraculous, amazing, unpredictable way. God protects not only Esther, but ALL the Jews from death (Esther 8 – https://bit.ly/2E5igGv).

Know today that God is your protector too! (Psalm 121:7-8, https://bit.ly/34kLprR)
