Weekday devotionals for Christians

Peace in the Midst of the Storm

Psa 73:26  My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
Psa 73:27  For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
Psa 73:28  But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

Have you ever had a day where it seemed like everything that is normally good is not being good?  Maybe the kids are acting up, maybe your friend is upset with you, maybe your energy to do something is gone, maybe you just feel discouraged.  If you have emotions at all, you will have days that it seems that your emotions will cause you to be down.  Have you ever wondered how to get out of the “rut” that it seems that you are in?

Verse 28 is good medicine for all of us to take.  It is good for me to draw near to God.  Regardless of your circumstances, it is good for you to draw near to God.  Guess what?  He wants you to draw near to Him!  He loves you and me and loves to spend time with us!  Have you heard this statement, “Laughter is good for the heart” ?  Laughter is good for your health; God is even better!  Why is it that our sin nature fights its hardest to keep us from getting close to God when it does our physical body very well?

Remember that when you feel down whether physically, spiritually, or emotionally; run to God.  God will help you physically to feel better; but most important than “feeling better” is getting close to God.  You will have Joy, Strength, Security, Love, and His undivided attention!  Run to God, it will do you good!
