Hidden Figures was an incredible movie that told the less-known story of a few black women who played key roles during the race to land on the moon. This movie reminds us that often we don’t know the whole story.

As followers of Jesus if we only listen to the preach on Sundays and don’t spend time in the Bible we may find that we miss out on the full story. Acts 17:11 (http://bit.ly/2Pk1Ihj) tells a beautiful story of a group called the Bereans who received Paul’s preaching with eagerness but then later checked it with the scriptures. We need to be reading the Bible regularly so that we continue to grow our understanding of the whole story.

Apparently, we know more about the moon than we know about the depths of the oceans on our own planet. That’s how impenetrable and inaccessible the deep sea is.

Micah says to God, ‘Once again You will have compassion on us. You will trample our sins under Your feet and throw them into the depths of the ocean!’ (Micah 7:19 http://bit.ly/2InuQyA)

God got rid of your sin. He drowned it in the unfathomable depths of the deepest sea. How awesome that you don’t need to keep on calling it to mind when He has put it completely out of His.

‘As for me, I look to the LORD for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemies! For though I fall, I will rise again. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.’ (Micah 7:7-8 http://bit.ly/2IlcONh)

Would you let Micah’s words just light up your darkness a little today? I don’t know the kind of darkness you might be sitting in – but God does, and He won’t leave you in it. As clearly as you see these words on your screen, your great Rescuer sees right through your darkness, right through you, and right into the future He has planned for you.

Do you wish God would just show up already and Do Something to fix everything that’s broken in the world – or broken in your own life? It’s hard to see God’s power with His goodness. Why doesn’t He act in power for the good of the world?

Not only is God powerful and good, He’s also wise, and His ways are different from ours (they’re bigger, better, cleverer). He still has the universe in His hands. He’s working all the time, in power, for our good and His glory, even when we can’t see what He’s doing.
