YOU ARE IN GOD’S BOOK

“And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12:2 – http://bit.ly/2LwlzE3)

Did you see it? The word Author. God writes a story. He writes a book.
That story is about His love for humanity.
You and I get to feature in that story.
Isn’t that cool?

Authors carefully think about the book they are writing.
Likewise, God carefully thinks about the pages and chapters He has for your life.
So, as the Author holds the pen to write, let Him hold you.

Actions

God invites and welcomes your actions.

The story of Zacchaeus that you can read at the beginning of Luke 19 (http://bit.ly/2wTNTxN) is a beautiful example of this. Jesus seeks out a tax collector who was hated by so many people and invites Himself to lunch. We don’t get to see much of the encounter or hear what Jesus says to him, but by the end of their time together, Zacchaeus responds by saying, “Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.”

Anytime we truly have an encounter with Jesus our transformed life will display this.

YOU ARE GOD’S FAVOURITE SONG

Sometimes you can find yourself singing or humming your favourite song.
Well, God does the same. He sings a song over you.

Zephaniah 3:17 (http://bit.ly/2vdbrcF) says:
“He will take great delight in you; He will quiet you with His love; but will rejoice over you with singing.”

He rejoices over you and me.
Why not ask Him today what are the lyrics He is singing over you?
Give it a try. Ask Him and listen.

Then tell Him which line of praise you would like to sing back to Him.

Questions

God invites and welcomes your questions.

Sadly, this might often not feel like it is true as many churches don’t seem to have space for people who doubt or ask questions. Yet the Bible is full of them.

From Abraham asking God if he would save Sodom if God found enough believers there, to the beautiful story of Nicodemus in John 3 (http://bit.ly/2MDZV5T) where he asks Jesus, “Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no-one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

Our faith is meant to be about engagement with God, so don’t be afraid to take your questions and even your doubts to God.
