Did you know that God loves you? He loves you when you are energized and working hard for Him, and He loves you when you feel discouraged. Today's text talks about the prophet Elijah and the struggle he had with discouragement. Thankfully God is gracious and present in it.


Have you ever been with someone who just couldn't make up their mind? They go back and forth and never seem to settle on anything. This is somewhat frustrating in daily life, but it is devastating when you can't make up your mind about God. God is after your undivided devotion to Him. It is time to make up your mind.

God is in complete control. It takes faith, however, to see how that works out. But even in doubts, fears, and challenges inherent to life, God is in control.

What comes to mind when you think about God? A.W. Tozer said that what comes to mind when we think about God is the most important thing about us. How you view God impacts the way you live your life. Do you expect God to answer you? Do you anticipate His work in your life? A life that sees God is a life lived with expectation.
