God’s CV

This week we’re taking a look back at last year through some posts out of Small Spaces – theWordspace’s guilt-free devotional. If you’re interested in grabbing a copy or supporting tWS, give us a shout 🙂

Here’s today’s post:

Does God have a CV? If the God you know were applying for the ‘job’ to be in charge of your life, would you let Him?

Here’s Isaiah 40v28-31: ‘The Lord is the everlasting God; the creator of the ends of the earth; He will not grow tired; His understanding no-one can fathom; He gives strength; those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength’

That’s just part of God’s CV: He never tires. He gives us strength. He is bigger that our understanding. I would trust that. How about you?

Living In God’s Ways

For me as a teenager, living life with God in control isn’t about doing religious or ‘Christiany’ things. It’s about living in God’s ways – you know, like seeking God, knowing God, finding God – even in the messy and confusing things of life.

Allowing God to be in control means letting God work in my heart and slowly turn me into the kind of person God made me to be.

In Matthew 6v33 Jesus challenges us to seek the kingdom of God first and allow everything else to fall into place. Today, how can you seek God first – not just the things you want to control?

Giving Up Control

XBOX, my friend and I. Sometimes when we are playing FIFA and my friend makes a bad pass or shot at goal I want to grab that remote and do it better!

Got me thinking about my life and control. God has designed my life and knows my character through and through.

So why am I so afraid of Him taking control of my life? He does know best!

Do you trust God enough to hand over control to Him?

‘For whoever wants to save their life, will lose it; but whoever loses their life for me will find it.’ Matthew 16v25

Like driving a car, maybe God allows you to push the accelerator; however will you let Him take the steering wheel? God knows you need to put your trust in Him.

Called to be a student?


Here’s some good news for when you’re studying and writing exams: by doing this you are right in the middle of God’s will for your life. God has called you right now to be a student – and to do that as well as you can. By studying you are honouring God and you can totally invite God’s presence into your work space

Here’s part of a really cool ‘exam-prayer’ from long ago:
‘Lord – give me sharpness of mind, capacity to remember, skill in learning, subtlety to interpret, and eloquence in speech’ It’s a prayer God will honour as you study and write this weekend
