2015 – Day 12

God cares for youPsalm 136:23-26 God remembered us when we were down, His love never quits. Rescued us from the trampling boot, His love never quits.Takes care of everyone in time of need. His love never quits. Thank God, who did it all! His love never quits.

Focus Verse: Takes care of everyone in time of need. His love never quits.

In Luke 14:7-14 Jesus tells us of the importance of genuine caring. First he taught about not seeking places of honour. Then he taught about accepting everyone. Our focus verse today says God takes care of everyone in their time of need. ‘His love never quits,’

He opens up His Kingdom to ‘everyone,’ sent His Son to earth to ‘save sinners.’

As we get involved more and more in recovery meetings we are going to come across people who will challenge our patience. The Bible tells us the two greatest commandments are to ‘love God’ and ‘love each other.’ Most will be familiar with the saying ‘to keep it you have to give it away.’ It is my prayer today that all of us will be aware of God’s love for us and His command for us to love each other in order that we will all grow in spiritual maturity together.

Prayer: Just for today I will remember all God has done for me and be thankful for it. I will encourage others in recovery and pray for their positive spiritual growth.
