Stay Home A 7 Day Devotional by Casey Alexis
In this devotional, we take a tour of what it means to stay home, using the words of Jesus himself from the Gospel of John 14:1-31, as our guide.
Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves.” JOHN 14:11 NIV
🔴 Day 4 Seeing Is Believing
The challenge of staying home is trusting that God will meet our needs. When you think about it, most of us leave home to provide financial stability and fulfill our passions. Jesus was an excellent example of what it meant to live in the world and yet trust God to provide—trusting that He will protect and provide for those that He loves.
In moments of doubt, review the evidence?
Jesus challenged His disciple, Phillip, who, like most of us, was having a difficult time following Jesus’ words. Jesus reminded Him, it’s okay to have moments when you question or doubt, but go back to the proof to confirm that I am who I say I am.
We all have evidence in our lives that proves that God is who He proclaims. The problem is we tend to forget, especially when things get tough. We forget the facts of His protection, the evidence of His provision, and the realities of His Love. I challenge you in those moments to recognize the truths. Remember that the same God that rescued you is the same God that will deliver you. The God that changed you is the God that will provide for you. The God that forgave you once will forgive you again.
You are an amazing Father. In moments where life gets complicated, and I may forget, remind me of you are. Specify all the evidence I have in my life that proves your words to be true. I thank you for all the things you have done for me, both seen and unseen. Please help me to hold on to you, especially when my circumstances try to pull me away from your guiding light. In Jesus name, Amen
