‘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.

We live in a cause and effect world. IF you bunk class, THEN you get detention. It’s natural for us to apply that principle to God – but it’s wrong.

God doesn’t fit into formulas, and His Kingdom ways are totally opposite to the workings of our world. It’s His kindness, not his anger or discipline or meting out of consequences, that leads us to repentance.

Paul writes about God’s wonderful kindness towards us in Romans 2:4 – read it here:http://bit.ly/2zv0yoz

So, IF you sin, THEN God runs to you, and wraps you in His redemption.

The coolest thing about getting to know God is realising that He has known you, all along. During the times in your life when it felt like He was far, He was really close. The times you couldn’t see Him? He could see you.

Read Job 31:4 (http://bit.ly/2IolbI0)

God knows you completely: the good, the bad and the embarrassing. And He longs for you to know Him too. Even today – even now – He’s watching and waiting, loving you and leading you.

Reach out to Him with a simple, ‘Hey God.’
He’s closer than breathing.
