Today's devotion is based on Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
Is it true that God is all we need, that God is enough for us? Is God enough when we are in the pain and agony or are struggling with our faith or tragedy strikes? Is God enough when God seems indifferent to our pain, and when our prayers seem to do nothing?
These are all good questions, questions that need to be answered. It is in those times that we must remember that God is bound by his promises to take care of us. Take heart that God sees the big picture. He sees life from beginning to the end – ‘the whole thing’ – and invites us not to seek an answer that seems right to us, but to put our hope and trust in him, who sees all and knows all. He will not fail you.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, as we struggle with the pain and hurts of this life, as we wrestle with you over things that seem to be unfair, help us to hold on to the truth that you are all we need and your grace is more than enough for us. Help us to direct our hope toward you, and to wait patiently and confidently until we are with you. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
