He understands.

He understands.

Have you ever had a problem that you felt no one else could really understand? Ever had a hurt so deep that it feels impossible to explain to someone else? It can be hard describing our stories to people who we feel just don’t get it.

But we serve a God who understands all things. He knows what it’s like to suffer – just look at what Jesus went through for us! He knows hurt, anger, depression, disappointment, happiness and joy. There is nothing that you can take to Him that He doesn’t understand and feel with you.

Psalm 147:3 (http://bit.ly/2XPaPqY)

God has an impressive call on your life.

God has an impressive call on your life.

If we think that God is only interested in us trying to be good and not sin too much, we are selling both ourselves and God short. In Isaiah 58:6-7 (http://bit.ly/2XTEEqh) we read ‘Is this not the kind of fasting I have chosen; to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?’

The call on our life is an impressive one, in that God wants us to be involved in fighting for justice for those who lack it. That is a huge and impressive task but in God’s strength we will be able to see it happen.

What would this look like in your life?

There are a lot of things in life that we have to fight. Sometimes I feel as useful as a pair of crocks carrying water. It feels like I have no strength to face my battles some days, and that can feel like a pretty lonely and helpless space.

But do you know what I remind myself of?
The God of the Bible.

Deuteronomy 20:4 (http://bit.ly/2pT3CqK) says that God is the One who goes with us to fight our enemies. We never go into battle alone – God is there. He never makes us fight alone and helps bring us victory!

God sees you as an all-in follower.

God sees you as an all-in follower.

In a letter to the church in Laodicea that we read in Revelations 3:16 (http://bit.ly/2XUTlJE), God says this: ‘Because you are lukewarm – neither hot not cold – I am about to spit you out of my mouth.’

I love the phrase ‘about to’ which shows this is a warning and the behaviour and attitude can still be changed. Even God would rather have us fully uncommitted than partly committed, so we need to choose right now that if we follow God it really has to be with everything.
