Word for the Day

 

God knows in detail the devastation caused by tragedy. He understands the pain and sorrow acquainted with grief and loss. He understands because He is all knowing. Furthermore, Jesus endured suffering (see Isaiah 53) and experienced pain—even the pain of feeling abandoned (see Matthew 27:46). And because God is with you always, He knows that you are hurting. He sees your pain and hears the cries of your heart. You are not alone in your suffering; He is there for you.

 

God cares very deeply about you and is attentive to every detail of your life—even those things that burden your heart. First Peter 5:7 says that you should cast “all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.” Isn’t it comforting to know that God Almighty cares about you! It may seem like your life has been shaken to the core, but His love for you is never shaken. “‘For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, but My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, and My covenant of peace will not be shaken,’ says the Lord who has compassion on you” (Isaiah 54:10).

 

No matter how bad things may seem, God is in control. Nothing happens without His knowledge. Matthew 10:29-31 says, “Not one sparrow (What do they cost? Two for a penny?) can fall without your Father knowing it. … So, don’t worry! You are more valuable to Him than many sparrows.” If God’s eye is on the sparrow, He is most certainly watching you. During sadness and uncertainty, His hand is there to guide you; His strength is there to support you. You are never out of His reach.

 

 

Prayer for the Day

O God strengthen me by the might of Your power and help me to look at You and not the circumstances of life.  For I know that Your grace is sufficient for Your power is made perfect in my weakness.

Lord, I know that You can do the impossible in our lives and are able to do abundantly more than we can ask or think. I place all my troubles on You, for You have promised to carry me and help me in time of need. I ask Lord for Your help in Jesus' name, Amen.
