God wants to 'pump you up!" Lent 2015, Day 10

Day 10, Lent 2015

"I will set my eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up, and not tear them down; I will plant them, and not pluck them up."  Jeremiah 24.6

Jeremiah is known for his hard and critical words, but here he delivers an amazing message of hope for all of God's people.   God is for you!  Take a moment to let that just sink in.  We know that this world has it's hardships; but in the midst of those trials never forget that God is not only present but looks upon you with eyes of favor and delight.   This doesn't mean that God is a genie who will serve at our command and protect us from every encounter.  But God is there to cheer us on as we navigate the decisions of life, and provides for those opportunities for us to be built up and planted strong.  (Psalm 1.3).

Keep an eye out for those things that God provides.  People, friendships and resources that can help build you up and keep you planted firmly in the love of Christ!

A prayer:  "Loving God, you have promised to keep your eyes upon us and provide for our building up and firm foundation.   May we remember and build on this as we live out our lives each and every day.  Amen."
