A Look at Life – An Introduction

I’ve been writing these devotional tidbits for a few years now. I’ve covered things from true love to true devotion to God, things from involvement in your church to what it means to serve God. However, I’ve never really addressed something which is an underlying basic truth to living for God, and that is recognizing God’s role in our life. Not just the idea that He should be our inspiration for service to His kingdom, but the foundational principles regarding just how God is in control of life.

You see, if we don’t understand or truly grasp God’s control over life and what that means for our individual lives, we will never reach the world for God in the ways he intends us to. After all, how can we encourage others to find true life in Christ, if we cannot tell them just how a life in God is supposed to look? How can they live for God if they don’t know all God has done for them?

My next four devotional writings will be in part my “A Look at Life” series, posting the first devotional around Friday Sept. 12th. I hope you will keep up with my writing as I think these next few devotionals will encourage you greatly and perhaps refresh a bit of your relationship with God. In the very least, I pray these devotionals will help you look at life in the ways God intends for us to.
