This is Barbara, of Precepts & Promises, here with Week 31 of our Providence 365.
My verse this week is Acts 17:28:
We are living in a bubble of sorts, surrounded by the Presence of the LORD. He is all around us, He moves with us, and our life, our very being, is dependent on Him.
If you are anything like me, however, your thoughts of Christ are fleeting throughout your day. I read my Bible in the morning, and there is no doubt that I am blessed and fed by the Word. But, then, the cares of the world creep in, and my thoughts are of groceries, dinner, laundry, children, work, and the rest of the life that I’ve been given.
But, the good news, the really joyful, awesome, and wonderful news, is that our relationship to Christ isn’t dependent on our feelings, or lack of them! Our position in Him is secure because of who He is, not because of our efforts. So, this week, look to see where He is all around you, sustaining you and giving you life, especially during those times when you aren’t even thinking of Him.
