Are you trusting God for something really huge at the moment – and kinda stressing out too?

Here’s a thought: God can fling stars and part the Red Sea. What you’re trusting him for is not too big. His power is infinite.

And the best news is that he’s not just a powerful God. He’s a powerful God who LOVES you. Zephaniah 3v17 says, ‘For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty saviour. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.’

Spend some time today talking to him?

God’s CV

This week we’re taking a look back at last year through some posts out of Small Spaces – theWordspace’s guilt-free devotional. If you’re interested in grabbing a copy or supporting tWS, give us a shout 🙂

Here’s today’s post:

Does God have a CV? If the God you know were applying for the ‘job’ to be in charge of your life, would you let Him?

Here’s Isaiah 40v28-31: ‘The Lord is the everlasting God; the creator of the ends of the earth; He will not grow tired; His understanding no-one can fathom; He gives strength; those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength’

That’s just part of God’s CV: He never tires. He gives us strength. He is bigger that our understanding. I would trust that. How about you?

Daily Bread

Here’s a line from the Lord’s Prayer to meditate on as we get ready for Easter:

‘Give us this day our daily bread.’ (Matthew 6)

Spend some time thinking what that prayer means to you. Use these words to help you:

Trust. Expectation. Need. Faithfulness. Provision. Father. Abundance. Hope. Thankfulness. Enough.

Take each of these words, one at a time, and speak them out and then say the line from the prayer.

How is ‘give us this day our daily bread’ connected to Trust?

And so on.

Perhaps this exercise will spark a time of prayer in which you give thanks to God for who He is and how He provides for you.

God of all comfort

,

God, sometimes it is hard to know how to support the people around me. Like when difficult stuff happens to my friends or family, what do I say? I know that you are the God of all comfort, but what am I supposed to do? Or, if someone is really happy and I’m not feeling the same way, then what do I do?

The Bible says that I should rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep (Romans 12v15). Help me to trust you enough that you can handle my feelings, so I can be sympathetic with others, no matter what space they’re in – happy or sad.
