Read Charles Stanley In Touch Daily Devotional 31 July 2022 and be blessed
TOPIC: A Safe Place
To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the scriptures referenced throughout.
We’re currently enjoying the warm, seemingly endless days of summer, but this season isn’t all sunshine and beauty. It’s also known for severe storms that bring lightning, thunder, and heavy rainfall. When they pop up, isn’t it wonderful to be able to run into a dry, comfortable shelter and be protected until the sun begins shining again?
Life is like that, too, sometimes. All is well until, suddenly and often without warning, difficulties arise. Our lives are full of “storms” of one kind or another. Regardless of what caused them, there’s seldom much we can do to stop them from running their course. All we can control is how we respond moving forward. Rather than face these troubles alone, we run to our heavenly Father, the One who deeply loves and cares for us—and waits with open arms. (See Proverbs 18:24; 1 Peter 5:6-7; 1 John 3:1; Revelation 3:20.)
- Think about it
How would you describe your relationship with God? Does He feel distant or is He close, like a loving friend ready to listen? Spend some time in prayer this week, asking God to help you sense just how near He is.
Bible in One Year: Isaiah 36-39
Thought For Today: God is our safe place when the storms of life rage around us.
