Day 15: Watch the Word

This week I was challenged by the following statement, “check the news, watch the Word.” It is very easy to get trapped in the endless cycle of news and forget to focus on the Word. The Bibles says in John 1:1-2, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.” Jesus is the Word and He created the universe.

I have found great comfort in the midst of our new normal with the fact that the sun still rises and sets as if nothing has changed. God opened his mouth and with one word created the sun, moon, and stars. The sun is so massive that it would take 1.3 million earths to fill it up, yet astronomically, it is just an average star. He truly is an awesome creator God and we know that He is in control. Just as He is in control of the sun, moon, and stars, biological life on earth has His handprints all over it. It is a wonder how 37 trillion cells in the average human body work in concert to sustain life. One cell adhesion protein called laminin, which helps hold our cells together, is shaped like a cross. God is good, He is everywhere, and He is in control of everything. (Colossians 1:17)

Prayer/Action Steps:
1. Read Psalm 94:19. Ask God for an increase in joy and peace even if your present circumstances remain.
2. Read Colossians 2:6-7. Ask God to help you grow in faith and trust so that you may overflow with thankfulness. During this time, focus on Jesus, and journal things you are thankful for.
3. Take a walk outside. Look for signs of spring and thank God for these changes. Read through Psalm 19 and pray verse 14, “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”

While meditating on Psalm 94:19, I was reminded once again that I can come to God with all of my concerns and fears during this COVID-19 pandemic. I can bring all my prayer 🙏 needs to Him as He is still listening and deeply cares about all that touches me, my family and our church body.

We don’t have to “fix whatever concerns us today”, but He can, in His timing, as we bring it out of the darkness into the light.
