A Truth to Live – God is near and not distant. He sees what is going on around me, hears my prayers and is moved by the cry of my heart. He will never reject me or strengthen those who oppose me. He is God and He is good. I will trust God to fill me with hope and joy.
Scripture – “Surely God does not reject a blameless man or strengthen the hands of evildoers. He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. Your enemies will be clothed in shame, and the tents of the wicked will be no more.” Job 8:20-22
Prayer – Eternal God, how grateful I am today that You are not a distant unreachable God. You hear my cries, see my pain and desire to bring wholeness to my life. I pray today that I will learn to focus on Your eternal goodness and not the temporary troubles around me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
