Thought for the Day – 12th May

God knows you  –  Don Brennan

As time passes, isolation has the effect of making us question things – When’s it going to end? What can I do now? How can I keep myself going? How can I worship God when Sunday services have been stopped and the church closed?

Do we make the most of new opportunities to worship God – the new YouTube Channel for DBC, the new activities online, other churches broadcasts online?

We forget that God is always with us, never goes away, listens to our very thoughts. Worship is engaging with God. Worship is praising God for who He is. Worship doesn’t have to be through formal structure but can be by recognising that we can just gratefully share our day with Him.

How do we react when we see His creation – take it for granted or praise God for its beauty? Do we think God isn’t around when we’re doing the washing up or hoovering? Do you think God wants rambling essays of prayer or what’s on your heart at that moment? Do we think God switches off when the isolation gets to you and you feel down, disheartened and totally fed up with it all?

When we do try to involve God in our day, we probably worry that we’re easily distracted, our thoughts stray or get pulled to something else – be assured we’re all in the same boat! God knows us inside out. (Pause for a moment and really think about that.)

Over and over again God’s Word tells us that He’s interested in our intentions – our heart – and not interested in show or perfect performances. He knows us! “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews 4:13 NIVUK

Verse for today –

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17 NIVUK
