Word for the day by Christian Education Forum
The God who is with us during the crisis1 peter chapter 5:6-11
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7
The apostle Peter wrote this letter to offer encouragement to suffering Christians. In first Peter chapter 5, we see how Peter is encouraging the elders and the believers through a hard time. Especially in verses, 6-11we see how peter talks about how we should trust that he will help us through times of trouble. So one lesson I want us to take away is that God will help us through troubling times let it be anything he will help you through it. Finally, I would like to end off with a story about a guardian angel at the gas station."I was 40 miles from home in a high-crime area for a work obligation and I had driven with my empty gas tank light on for the entire trip there. I had $1.67 on my debit card and as I asked the clerk at the sketchy gas station I stopped at to put $1.00 on my pump, a man walked in. My card was declined so I sat in my car trying to find any change or singles I might have stashed. The man came up to my car and told me he put $5.00 on my pump. I don't know if this man has any idea how much he helped me but it got me home safe even though I cried tears of appreciation for most of my drive." This shows how this person was in need to go home and how that man was a big help to that person. Just like that God will always help us through our hardship. By these may God bless us all.
Dear lord heavenly father thank you for giving us this time to meditate on your word. Lord helps us through the time of advent to grow in faith. Lord help us to believe that you are there for us through any hardship. We pray this all in Jesus' name amen.
