The Daily Evidence Of God

Every day we are able to see evidence of God around us.  We see the work of His hands in what He has created: our friends, our family, our pets.  We see His power when we witness people suffering, yet who find their strength in Him.  How have I seen Him this week?  I was reminded of His faithfulness as I listened to a wounded friend confide that God would be The One – the only One she would lean on through her pain.  I was reminded of what happens when God’s love captures someone’s heart, as I watched one of His faithful followers spend time and energy aligning each chair in our church sanctuary perfectly, in order to glorify Him.  And I heard about Him in a song this morning called, “Reckless Love,” by Cory Asbury (see below).  It conveys so well the kind of love God has for us.  As the song says, “Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me…You have been so, so kind to me.”

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins . . .  And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.”
(1 John 4:9-10, 16a, NIV)
