Come and see what God has done
This devotion series, originally written by Sarah Condie for The Bible Society Australia, was created to encourage you to ponder the loving deeds of the Lord, so that songs of joy and thankfulness bubble forth from within you. Remembering the character of God and the wonderful things he has done moves us to praise and thank our great God for who he is and what he has done.
Some devotions will focus on small but significant habits, while others will focus on the character of God. At the end of each devotion and prayer, Sarah has provided a link to a song. Everyone’s taste in music is unique, so please, if you don’t like her choices, choose songs that you love.
Often, we think that our experience of life is dependent upon our circumstances: when things go well, we feel good; when life is difficult, not so much. But the truth is that we can find our hearts and minds lifted to God in thanks and praise even in the midst of challenging life circumstances.
There is an interplay of love in our relationship with God our Father. We have a Father who knows us intimately, who sees us, hears us, and speaks tenderly to us. In the same way that I speak to my granddaughter, our Heavenly Father says to you, dear reader, ‘I love you, precious one, and you are in a safe space here with me.’
My mother turned 90 recently and her six grandchildren filled a glass jar with ninety memories of her. Each memory was an example of her goodness towards them. If you were to fill a jar with memories or ways that the Lord has been good to you, what would you include?
