Through this week, I’ll be sharing simple verses that have rocked my perspective on life and faith, with just a short note. My hope is that God will move in a similar way in your heart…
“…the nations [will say], ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to him?'” -Deuteronomy 4:6-7
“Nation” is not referring to “America” by the way… God has always loved His children, first the nation of Israel and, now, His bride, the Church.
At no time in the history of the world has there ever been a “god” so near to his people. The Spirit of the living God moves among and within us and is present for every breath we take. Let that thought sink in as you pray these words…
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
The Father is the Source – of everything.
He is holy and above all else.
His kingdom is coming and His will is being done through His Church – you and me.
He is the Provider of all our needs.
He forgives us with a passion that far exceeds ours.
He is the Protector, guarding us from Satan and his armies.
Pray that with a confidence that no other nation/body/religion/church/kingdom has ever been nearer to the Source than you are right now.
