I can barely believe it’s week number SEVEN in our Hero of the Home print line. Each week we’re giving you some new art, and some new encouragement to keep reminding you that God has placed you where you’re at on purpose. We believe that when each woman takes her place as an ambassador in her home, ready to speak life and truth, ready to believe what God’s Word says about her and her family – everything changes.
This week I’ve got a short word of truth and encouragement to attach to our print and it’s this:
Isn’t it amazing that we don’t have to chase God, He chases us?
When I look at the God of the Bible – I see a very caring, very present, very active God. Even when there is hardship or pain, His hand is not short. He’s hurting too, for us, and working on our behalf to bring good out of it.
I see a God who is perfectly orchestrating all things for me to experience the most of Him possible and for me to bring Him glory. I see a God arranging and aligning, blessing and bestowing, protecting and preparing. I can’t even say that He’s problem solving – because problem solving would indicate that a problem can be in His presence, but out of His control. But that can’t be.
Say this to yourself today and see if it doesn’t change things:
I don’t have to chase God, He is chasing me. I don’t have to find Him, He is right here. I don’t have to earn His love or approval or presence in my life, He gives it freely.
I wonder if you won’t see His hand a little more clearly, I wonder if you won’t see blessing and grace showing up a little more loudly in your every day.
We made this print with this truth in mind. We don't have to chase God, he is chasing us.
