Our verse for today is one that has so much depth in so few words. Don't you think?
For in Him [God] we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Mine are below.
In God. What a thought.
I have enough trouble grasping God within me - but me within God? Wow.
We LIVE in God. He is our abiding place. If we are His followers, everything we do in life occurs within the bubble of his everlasting care. He is our home - our refuge. And we are never outside of the loving abode of His presence.
We MOVE in God. As we progress through life, from one activity, task, and/or life experience to the next, we are surrounded by our Savior. He is our "outer covering," if you will, as we travel from strength to strength; from trial to trial; from joy to joy.
We HAVE OUR BEING in God. Everything about us that makes us human - our strengths, our weaknesses, our nature, our desires, our hopes, our dreams - is in Him. We think that the Lord messed up - that that one physical flaw or weakness that drives us crazy is out of His control. But it isn't. He is sovereign over ALL of it. Our being - everything about us - is under His control.
And there is nowhere I can feel more secure than in my Heavenly Father.

Great post Joanne, I just love that verse. In fact, I was thinking about it just yesterday, that it is so wonderful that I am in Him! Apart from Him, I have nothing, apart from Him, I am nothing.ReplyDelete
