Looking Back

Matthew 1:21 She will give birth to a son. You will name him Jesus. Give him that name because he will save his people from their sins.

It’s easy to feel sometimes that God has gone missing. It’s not a nice feeling but it’s a feeling nevertheless that we all experience at some point. Which is why today we’re going to pray together. Ready?

Have you ever felt as though God is a million miles away, that looking back, somewhere in the busyness of life, the two of you seemed to have parted company? Well, if that rings a bell, then this prayer is for you:

Father God, you know something? As I look back on my life, I know there have been some great times, some really good times.

But, in my heart of hearts, I just know too that I’ve been running around trying to fill myself up – trying to, you know, buy this and do that, and achieve this and go there, and somehow in the middle of all that I just know that I’ve wandered off. I know that I’ve left you behind.

And I just got to thinking about Jesus. I thought about how He was nailed to that Cross. I was thinking how incredibly painful that must have been. I can’t imagine.

They tell me, Lord Jesus, that you died for me. And the more I think about that – wow, everything else just kind of … well, all those things just seem so small, so petty, so irrelevant.

Lord, I’m not sure I completely understand why you had to die. But deep inside I know you did. I just know you did. Thank you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Friend, Jesus … Jesus came for you.

Friend, Jesus came for you. He died to save you from your sin.

Jesus.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
