Summer Devotional August 16th, 2017

2 Chronicles 20:15:  “‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army.  For the battle is not yours, but God’s.'”

Sometimes we fight against things in our lives that are completely out of our control.  We forget whose battle it is: God’s.  He’s the redeemer, the one who’ll make all things right.  The administrator of justice.  The final say.  So quit taking on battles that is not yours; leave them to God.  He’s in charge, not you.  Use your strength and energy for much more productive things.

    So simple, so hard to remember.

    I know it’s no coincidence
    I live just where I do
    You’ve planned my life and know my ways
    You know me through and through

    When trials come along the way
    As they so often do
    I know it’s no coincidence
    I feel so close to you

    The joy that soars within me
    At the mention of your name
    I know it’s no coincidence
    Through death my life You claimed

    When nothing is the matter
    But I still feel so cast down
    I know it’s no coincidence
    Scriptures with love abound

    A peace that I don’t understand
    Yet flows through all of me
    I know it’s no coincidence
    You promised it would be

    And then sometimes I wonder
    Lord, Why do you love me
    He said , “It’s no coincidence
    that you happen to be”

    With Love and joy I formed you
    And knew all you would be
    You see it’s no coincidence
    That you belong to me.
