Strong Boy

God is like the strongest boy in your Grade.

Why?
Because He can carry things that you can’t.

There are some things you weren’t created to carry. Like anxiety or worry.
Worried about a test, or a friend or the future? That’s too heavy for you. Worry will weigh you down from the inside. It’ a burden too big for your mind to bear.

Disciple-fisherman Peter wrote, “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7 – http://bit.ly/2FbFqH4). That word ‘cast’ is fisherman-lingo for ‘throw as far away from you as possible’.

God is built to carry your unknowns. Your uncertainties. Your ‘what-ifs’ and your ‘what-nows’.

‘Itekisi’

God is like an ‘itekisi’ (Taxi).

Really?
Yes, because God’s heart always has room for one more.

Your family car may have limited seats. Your school bag can only hold so many books, but God so loved the world (that’s 7.7 billion people at present, not even counting all who have lived and will live), that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever (there’s room!) believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16 – http://bit.ly/23IQJw5).

Watch out for how many things ‘get full’ or ‘run out of space’ today and remember, that will never happen with God’s heart.

He’s perfect.

God is perfect.

And that is good news but it can also be quite intimidating and He may seem unapproachable. Yet at the same time it’s this same perfection that makes you respect and worship Him.

This means that He is never wrong no matter what He allows to happen in and around us. His perfection also reassures us that the plan He has for our lives can definitely be trusted, His will for our lives is perfect.

Today take some time out and reflect on that.
His perfection assures us that He can always be trusted.

Forgiveness

It hurts when we are let down, especially by those closest to us. It’s easy to want to hold onto the hurt and anger, but God calls us to forgive because He has forgiven us.

Treating our neighbour as we would like to be treated can be hard because we always want justice for our pain, but God says that forgiveness and mercy are so much more powerful than being right. God forgave us all through Christ and wants us to do the same by His strength. When we forgive we show that we belong to Him and know Him.
