Speechless

When is the last time the Lord left you speechless? For me, it was quite recently and it just left me shaking my head with tears of amazement welling up in my eyes.

I don't know why the Lord continues to surprise me, but he does. I should have learned by now that he sees me, knows what I am struggling with down deep, and can orchestrate things to show me that he knows.

And more than just knowing...he cares.

The God of the Universe cares about me. The God who performs miracles, defeats nations, and rules over all, pays attention to that small corner of my heart that is aching. And he sends me his Word to cover that small, painful, no-one-even-knows-it-hurts corner.

And when he does that, I feel so loved.

And that leaves me speechless.

What are you facing today that you think no one sees? Maybe it is big. Maybe it is small. But no matter the size of it, God sees it, cares about it, and wants to work in it.

I pray you know that God sees you and cares about you and so loves you. Let us start the week made speechless by the awareness that our very holy, mighty, and powerful God sees us. Cares about us. And will speak directly into those unknown corners of our hearts if we seek him.


Memorize this verse today:

"She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: 'You are the God who sees me,' for she said, 'I have now seen the One who sees me.'"
~Genesis 16:13
