Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional comes from “Hope for Each Day” by Billy Graham.
God Cares For You
1 Corinthians 14:33New International Version (NIV)
33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.
Who of us has not asked in times of affliction and difficulty—does God care for me? The psalmist said, “Refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul” (Psalm 142:4 KJV). Martha, over-concerned with her workaday duties, said to Jesus. “Lord, do You not care?” How many faithful, loving mothers, overwhelmed by the burdens of motherhood, have cried anxiously, Lord, do You not care?
The question is forever answered in these reassuring words of Peter; “He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). This is the Word of God. Even if the world passes away it will not change.
You can be confident God cares for you. If He didn’t, would He have sent Christ into the world to die for you? Of Course not! That is why you can always turn to Him for the strength and encouragement you need.
Yes, life can be overwhelming at times. But when it is, remember this: God knows what you are facing, and “He cares for you.”
