God is closer than you think

A Helping Hand_jpgEven when we are going through trials and tribulations and God seems far away, stand on His promises of love, care and protection. Do not rely on your feelings – but on faith. God will never leave you, nor forsake you. God is in control; He is closer than you think.

Soaring on the wings of God

Grace For Today“As an eagle stirs up its nest,
Hovers over its young,
Spreading out its wings,
Taking them up,
Carrying them on its wings,
So the LORD [Yahovah] alone led him..”

–         Deuteronomy 32:11-12

The Bible uses the above verses to illustrate how the Lord exercises His loving care over us, His chosen people, like an eagle cares for its young.

When our heavenly Father is teaching us to grow in faith and trust in Him, we are like young eagle chicks (eaglets) just learning how to fly. After the youngsters have grown past the period of nursing and have fully developed their wings, the mother eagle will stir up the nest and nudge them out of their comfort zones. She wants them to learn how to fly on their own and eventually leave the nest.

One at a time, as the young eagles are thrust out and flutter in the air (sometimes from great mountain heights) their wings are not often strong enough to keep them airborne for very long. They frightfully begin to fall until their mother swoops down and rescues them. Ever vigilant and protective of her children, she spreads her wings and catches them at the last moment.

Likewise, our Lord God thrusts us out of our comfort zones as we progress beyond the stage of “baby Christians” and trains us how to fly as mature believers. Over and over again, He teaches us that He is ever-present in our lives and protective of any danger we may encounter. He carries us on His wings to safety anytime we begin to fall until we’re strong enough to soar on our own. His constant vigilance over our lives assures us of His trustworthy love and care.

Thank God today for loving you enough to bring you out of any stagnation in your life that would keep you from soaring upwards on His wings of love and grace – helping you fulfill your utmost potential as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Naked, Exposed & Vulnerable

 TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

 “For I am confident of this very fact, that He [God our Father] Who began a good work in you of salvation and transformation, will continue working until the day of Jesus the Messiah – right up to the time of His return, perfecting and bringing you to full completion.” – Philippians 1:6 (JCV)

 TODANaken, Exposed & VulnerableY’S COMMENTARY

 Did you know that the lobster sheds his shell 14 times during his first year of life? Every shedding takes about 10 days. Each period between the shedding of his old shell and the growing of the new one, the lobster has no protective armor. He is naked, exposed and vulnerable to his environment, and almost helpless. But after each shedding, the lobster grows about 7 percent.

 Sometimes our Christian Life is Like That.

There are times when we get frustrated with the way our lives are going – the irritations, unexpected surprises, detours, dead-ends, or simply the periods of boredom and impatience. We wonder, “Where is God in all this? I feel naked, exposed and vulnerable! Does God really love me? Is He really in control of my life?”

 Yes, God is still in control.

There is never a time when your Heavenly Father is not aware of what you’re going through, or fully in control of your circumstances in order to produce growth. It may not seem like you’re growing at all, but you are.

Be assured that, even in the midst of His silent and invisible working, God is active in your life. He is busy molding, shaping, and refining all the time. Let it happen; don’t be in a rush. It is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing (Phil. 2:13-14).

Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith. Live in obedience to Him, trust God to know what is best for you, and leave the rest up to Him.

 Wait on God.

Wait with God.

Wait for God.

 PRAYER

 Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for my salvation and the good work you’ve started in me. I give You full control of my life because I trust in your wisdom. I know You will always do what’s best for me. Help me be submissive to your will, and to be patient in waiting upon you. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.
