A small bug landed on my screen.
So I watched its shadow dance across the window pane until it was no more; the tiny insect disappeared into the sunlight.
I then listened to the rustling leaves blowing gently in the invisible cool breeze, while I thought about the awesomeness of God.
He is the powerful creator of all things, great and small.
And yet, He is mindful of us.
The same God that so meticulously crafted the earth and all its inhabitants also cares about everything that concerns you and me.
I am so moved by that.
Yesterday, I was reminded of His compassion when I received a message from someone dear to me who happens to be going through a very difficult challenge right now. This individual told me God spoke a specific phrase to them that led them on a search.
That quest ended when they found exactly what they were looking for in a blog post I had recently written. When they read the message, it deeply ministered to their needs. It was that right on time word tailor-made for their situation.
It was obvious God had guided them to Your Daily Cup of Inspiration to refresh their soul.
As they told me about the divinely orchestrated moment, I felt so thankful and in awe of God. It never gets old to me to see the hand of God at work in how He brings us the people, things, and resources we need, right when we most need them.
The same God that controls the universe is always working in our favor. He is constantly holding our hand and guiding us through life’s journey.
When we are depleted and our well has run dry, God will pour out a refreshing word that will, like rain pouring into dried-out earth, quench the thirsting of our souls.
When we are weary from the struggles of our fight, our loving Father will be a refuge, a private oasis, our very own place of serenity, where joy is overflowing and peace surpasses all understanding.
The God of the universe sees you, knows all about you, and cares about everything concerning you. To remind you of this, I’m stirring Pslam 8:4 NIV into your cup of inspiration. It says, "What is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?"
When you drink down the contents of your cup of inspiration, you will be reminded that you are not alone. You are not going through life all by yourself. Your Heavenly Father is with you, holding you, leading you, and ordering your every step, as long as you never shut Him out in your time of distress.
Receive His love. Open your heart and I guarantee you will see Him, feel Him, and experience Him everywhere.
Now let’s pray together.
God, thank You for reminding me that I am loved by You. During my darkest days and most challenging nights, help me feel Your loving arms wrapped around me. Let me never forget, oh God, that You will never leave nor forsake me. You are with me always and all I'll ever need is found in You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
As always, thanks for reading and until next time... may today's cup of inspiration uplift, encourage, and empower you!
