Jesus Calling for Kids – August 15th
The Position of Your Heart
I am the God of all times and of all that is. And I am waiting to hear from you – morning, noon and night.
Psalm 32:6 – Therefore, let all the godly pray to you while there is still time,
that they may not drown in the floodwaters of judgment.
I AM THE GOD OF ALL TIME and all that is. Seek Me not only in morning quietness but consistently throughout the day. Do not let unexpected problems distract you from My Presence. Instead, talk with Me about everything, and watch confidently to see what I will do.
Adversity need not interrupt your communion with Me. When things go “wrong” you tend to react as if you’re being punished. Instead of this negative response, try to view difficulties as blessings in disguise. Make Me your Refuge by pouring out your heart to Me, trusting Me at all times.
WOW! What a strong statement I found inside of this devotion. “When things go “wrong” you tend to react as if you’re being punished.” This is so very true!!! I know that my first reaction to something going wrong, is that it is a punishment.
You know the feeling too, right? The big knot in the stomach, the “sigh” of why me, the mind that is searching for reasons why and that little voice in the back of the mind that is saying…”You deserve this. You are not worthy.”
It is not always easy to look at our difficulties as blessings in disguise, especially when we are right in the middle of the problem. We need to change our perspective of what “wrong” means. If we believe in God then nothing that happens to us is “wrong” because God is always “right.” WOW, another interesting thought from God! I am going to have to think about that one for a bit. So while I am thinking, let me leave you with this…If you are busy communicating with God throughout your day, you are going to find it really difficult to be sad, depressed, confused, angry or disillusioned. Stay close to Him and when you are not sure what to say…whisper His name. There is power in the name of Jesus!!!
