God's concern for us.by Tim Mondy on 10/06/15
"I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth! (Psalm 121:1-2).
This verse takes on special emphasis this morning. As I sit and drink my morning coffee, corresponding with people around our country, I am reminded of needs all over the place. A state away, the width of our country away, right across town. All over the place. Uncertainty in test results, surgical needs, spiritual needs. The list could go on for a while, but I think the point is adequately made. It would be easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of prayer requests if it weren't for the simple fact God is in control.
There is no force in this world, or any other for that matter, which can withhold the might and power of a gracious, loving Father who cares about every need we may have. Though we tend to try to fix things by our own power much of the time, I simply wanted to remind all of us today that we need to stop looking at our surroundings as insurmountable obstacles, and look at them as opportunities for God to show us just how much He cares.
