Today you should read: Jeremiah 46
Thank you for faithfully reading God’s Word through JumpStart! We love providing this resource to allow the people at Center Point to flourish in daily communion with God. I hope that you’ve continued to honor your commitment to pray every day – truly communing with the Heavenly Father. It’s the source of power in the Christian life.
When you read Jeremiah 46, you realize one clear thing…
I’m not sure how that speaks to you today – but maybe you just needed to hear that – to see it in today’s Scripture reading. Things lately have been overwhelming. Every day the news media seem to be saying that things are worse and worse. You may feel overwhelmed, frustrated, maybe even defeated.
I want to remind you – GOD WINS! If you’re in a relationship with God through Jesus, you are on the winning team. When things get tough – I always run back to the basics…
Worship God every day – remembering who He is
More than ever – it’s essential to begin your day worshipping God. Looking to Him, acknowledging His mighty attributes, and praising Him. Remember – He’s God – you’re not!
You trust in something… what is it? The government? The news? yourself? All of those things will let you down – find your trust in the Lord! (Read Psalm 37 today….)
Seek Him with all of your heart
When you seek Him with all of your heart and put Him first, your perspective changes. You begin to live such that your life revolves around God rather than God revolving around your life. Game Changer!
Commune with Him in the morning and all throughout the day
Jesus OFTEN went to the mountains to pray. After walking everywhere and having no real bed to sleep in, He thought is was important to commune with His Father. What about you? Are you too busy to pray or too busy NOT TO pray?
When you share Jesus with others – whether a full Gospel witness or a simple word, you bring Him to the forefront of your thoughts. Sharing Jesus is a powerful tool of focus in our lives.
I know times are hard – many of us feel disconnected, lonely, and scared. BUT remember today – GOD WINS! Allow that thought to dominate your day!
