Good afternoon Church family,
I have just been reading how good it for us to focus on the character of God when we are going through something difficult. Knowing who God is, helps to settle our despair and discouragement because we realise the might and splendour of the God who is behind us, before us and all around us. The God who cares for us, understands us, leads and guides us beyond what we see to a hope-filled future.
Psalm 5:11-12 says “But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, so that those who love your name may exult in you. For you bless the righteous, O Lord; you cover them with favour as with a shield.”
If you are finding things a bit hard today, reflect on the nature of God and if things are going well today then do the same. Let the people of God arise and say they are blessed!
Strength and joy to you all!
