I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word. For the month of October, I will incorporate the word prompts into my series, 31 Days Of Going In Circles.
Today’s word is ….
My children know they can come to about and for anything. The day I gave birth to them, my heart no longer belonged to me. My needs were no longer my first concern.
As my children have grown and married, I still care about them and for them. Deeply. And they know they can come to their dad and I with their needs.
“For the Lord God is our sun and shield.
He gives us grace and glory.
The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.
O Lord of Heaven’s Armies,
what joy for those who trust in you.
(Psalm 84:11-12, NLT)
We can come to our God with anything which is burdening our hearts, weighing heavy on our minds, or with a need. He is always ready to hear, willing to provide.
The enemy of our souls would have us to believe our God, our heavenly Father, would hold out on us. It was the same way he caused Eve to doubt – “Did God really say you must not eat from any tree in the garden?” (Genesis 3:1). Although God had provided everything they needed, the enemy posed the question so Eve would think God was withholding the fruit of the tree from them and caused her to doubt God.
May we remember to refute him and expose his lie with the truth of God’s promise –
The Lord will withhold no good thing from who do what is right.
Because He does care for us.
