God is Always Near

I just can’t get enough of the view of the mountain.

Every morning when I get up it is the first thing I look for. Some days it is hidden in the clouds but this morning it was there. The fog spread across the valley floor but rising above it are the snow-capped peaks of Mount Baker. A reminder that even though I don’t see it all the time it is still there in all its’ splendour.

My prayer for you

“I pray that you are trusting in the Lord, making you like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever because as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds you now and forevermore. I ask the Lord to be good to you, for you are good and upright in heart.” Amen.   Psalm 125:1-4

You Are My Savior

“Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” Psalm 25:4-5

As we realize how vast, and BIG, how far beyond our understanding God is, we may need reminding that He really wants to be in personal relationship with us.

The God of Heaven sent His Son, Jesus, to span the gulf between His vastness and our sinful, unworthy selves. He waits for us to issue the invitation to make our hearts His dwelling place.

As He declares over you, “I AM GOD”! He brings it up close and personal.

“YOUR Savior.” In essence He is saying,

“I am here to show you my way right where you walk; to teach you and to use my truth to guide you as you focus on me in this day. Let your confident expectation be in ME all day long. Keep your eyes in today and do not run ahead into tomorrow. I will walk with you and save you from despair and destruction, from a frantic life and even from yourself.”

When we open our hearts and lives to this very personal Savior He gives an overwhelming confident expectation in EACH day as we arise to say, “You are God, my Savior”!

Sit for a moment and repeat that great truth. Let it soak into your being.

“You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long!”

Thank you Lord God, that You have saved me and I can be confident all day as You walk with me, guiding my way. Amen.

Thought: Ask God to show you where He is at work around you.
