There's never been a moment you were forgotten

Father, 

Today, we are talking about your unfailing love. Those two words bring chills down my spine as I ponder how majestic and wonderful you truly are. It’s more than we will ever be able to comprehend. As we enter this devotional today, I pray that you would give us your words, your truth, and your love. God, would you encourage us to know you more, understand the depths of your love and learn how to receive it? We love you, Abba Father.

Amen.


Unfailing love. 


As little girls, it’s likely most of us dreamt of being saved. It’s part of our wiring to be captivated by the idea of being protected, fought for and desired. As I mature in my faith, I stand in awe at the truth that lies behind our innate desires long before we walk intimately with the Lord. Before I knew the Lord, and the truths of His love, I knew I desired to be protected. As children, particularly little girls, most of us dreamt of our knight in shining armor, our Disney prince, coming to save us from the harm of the world. As adults, we dream of a future husband that will lead our household. We long to be a desired friend by friends and family. I do not find it by chance that we are born with this ingrained in who we are. We are born knowing and understanding the truth of what our God has to offer us. We are born desiring and craving it. The missing piece? It takes coming to know Him, experiencing Him and being led to Him to recognize this desire of our hearts is of Him and for Him. 


Lauren Daigle sings these words in her latest release, Rescue: 

You are not hidden

There's never been a moment

You were forgotten

You are not hopeless

Though you have been broken

Your innocence stolen

I hear you whisper underneath your breath

I hear your SOS, your SOS

I will send out an army to find you

In the middle of the darkest night

It's true, I will rescue you


I bold those last three lines because I feel the same emotion every time I hear Lauren sing them. As if I’ve been told the greatest truth of all time and want to cry tears of relief and feel the greatest hope all at once. Every time I hear her sing those last three lines, my attention to anything but our God comes to a halt and I just want to turn my palms up and sing to Him. 


God is love. 1 John 4:8 He is the ultimate example of love. He rescues US. You and me. He saves us from ourselves and our flesh so we might know Him more. He protects us so we can be a part of His Kingdom for eternity. Now, tell me what problem you face today that is bigger than this truth? He’s not going anywhere. You can’t run Him off. He’s here to stay. He’s here to fight. He’s here to protect. All He asks in return is that we accept His love, seek Him and share His truth. Can we do that?


God, we pray for eyes to see and understand your love with each passing day. God, help us to understand that you are the ultimate example of love. Without you, there is no hope for love. With you, we have an immediate resource to love others and ourselves with the unfailing love that has been extended to us. Help us to know you more in this moment, today. Teach us, through your truth, to extend the same love to others that has been graciously given to us. Amen.

It is important we remember GOD IS HERE. Our lives are lived fully when we learn to be still in the midst of unknowns and unfamiliar territory. God calls us to get uncomfortable by doing the heart and head work of slowing our roll (preaching to the queen of productivity here), taking a moment to ask questions and understand one another and meditate on God's truth.

Let’s dig into what scripture tells us about grief. My family and I just finished studying the book of Job, and what a powerful testimony his life was to God’s faithfulness in spite of grief. At the beginning of the book, we saw where God pointed Job out to Satan saying, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?” (Job 1:8). Satan responded, “Does Job fear God for no reason? Have you not p...

If you’re feeling behind in your life, I invite you to think about what God might want you to steward something that’s in front of you while waiting for something new. Don’t get tired of doing what is good with what you already have. At just the right time you will reap a harvest of blessing. But you can’t give up before then.
