Topic: The Newly Wed! Who Moved? [Our Daily Manna ODM Sunday, February 25th, 2018]
Basic scripture: James 4:1-10
Welcome to today’s devotional encounter with the God of all mercies! I am reminded of a story told by a pastor about a newlywed couple. When they rode in the car, the wife will sit close to her husband that it looked like there was a two-headed driver in the seat. Then 25 years later, when they went out in the car, the wife sat away over at the other side. One day she looked at the husband and said: remember the day we use to sit close to each other and we looked like a two-headed driver? The husband laughed over it and quietly said: Well honey I was not the one who moved.
That is how it is with you and God. If you are feeling He is far away from you for a season, always remember that He is not the one who has moved. The word says in James 4: 8 Draw close to God and He will draw nigh to you. God does not move! He says I will never leave you nor forsake you. God’s address has been the same since He made Adam and Eve! Psalm 46: 1b says that He is a very present help in trouble! That means even in difficult circumstances, when it looks like darkness has hidden his face, God is nearer than your own human spirit.
If God forsakes you, He ceases to be God, because He has broken His word. In this year 2018, be encouraged, even when it seems like your prayers are not being answered or when delay is evidently around your life. Sin, lack of reading the word, postponing your prayer times, wrong friends/relationship, etc, can make you far from God.
Note this, if your circumstances find us in God, we will find God in all our circumstances. In crises, double your bible study rate and look for a prayer partner! God is an ever present help in life’s battles! Peace! This is your year!
