“The True Source For Every Season”
Psalm 62:1-2 NIV
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.
As I gather my thoughts and share with you in the devotional for this week, I am thinking through the whole year of 2020 and all that has taken place with the chaos. However, even with all the chaos, I know and truly believe that God is still and will always be in control.
As I consider the past year, our time of celebrating Thanksgiving last month and now embarking on the week of Christmas and then New Year’s to follow right after, I am reminded that no matter what is going on, I can always find true rest and peace with God amidst all the craziness going on. We have all experienced and continue to experience times that are good, time that are challenging and times where we just cannot wrap our minds around anything going on around us.
I am so blessed to know that God has taken such good care of me and my family through all of this turbulent time this year. I am so thankful for the health that he has given to me and my wife and kids. I’m also thankful for the wonderful family he has give to me through my wife’s extended family and mine as well. Each day, God is reminding me of all He has blessed me with and continues to give me.
I am reminded that I have a job, a family who loves me, great friends who care, a house to live in, food in my fridge and transportation to get me and my family where we need to go. God has provided and He continues to do so in so many ways. I am reminded that He is truly my peace and rest. He is my salvation and my rock. He is my fortress and I can never be shaken, no matter what comes my way.
I find each day that instead of focusing on all the constant changes that are happening around me, I need to focus on the blessings He has given to me and continues to give.
I’m sure so many of you out there are dealing with many different challenges and struggles as this year has progressed. Let us never forget that even though we often face great challenges, we serve a great God Who is bigger than anything we face! He reigns and always will!
As we approach this week of Christmas and gathering together with friends and family as much as we can, let’s remember Who is the real reason for not only this season, but every season and every single day of life.
God bless you all and have a very Merry Christmas!
