He has Risen! Alleluia!
Today's devotion is based on Acts 17:27, “God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.”
That’s what the apostle Paul wrote about when it comes to finding God. We can look around us and see that there is a divine order to all of the creation in which we live. Look at the way our bodies function. Look at the order in the universe. We can tell great things about God from the world around us, but we can’t tell who he is. Isn’t that “tantalizing”?
God allowed us to recognize this order to hopefully seek God and find him. But God doesn’t hand out clues like some celestial riddle maker. Nor do we need to be a spiritual Sherlock Holmes to find him. He gave us the Bible to have specific information and know who he is and where we can find him. God sent Jesus to make us certain that God is right here with us, loving, directing, and providing for us.
Please pray with me: Heavenly Father, thank you for revealing yourself to me in your Word. Direct my eyes to the wonderful mercies you have shown me through Jesus. Lead me to your Word daily so that your grace may refresh my soul. Amen.
