The Story: From “After this Paul and Barnabas had a sharp disagreement…” on p 411 to the end of the second paragraph on p 416.
“He is the God who made the world and everything in it. Since He is Lord of heaven and earth, He doesn’t live in man-made temples and human hands can’t serve His needs. He Himself gives life and breath to everything, and He satisfies every need.” Acts 17:24-25
As a mom, the number one phrase we hear is usually, “Mooooom…. I need…” The number two phrase is, “Honey… I need…” As mothers we are constantly shepherding our flock to still waters and green pastures, finding missing socks, absent backpacks and books and yes, upon occasion even the missing child. We spend so much of our days meeting everyone’s needs. And I think that is why this verse may just be one of the mom verses of the year. “Human hands can’t serve His needs. He Himself gives life and breath and everything, and HE satisfies every need.” There is absolutely nothing that your hands can do to serve a need that God has. Rather, it is HE that satisfies every one of YOUR many needs. Isn’t that such a WONDERFUL message???
As a side note, I could really use your prayers friends. This week has been SO DIFFICULT trying to get posts written! There have been quite a few changes in schedules and summer vacation has started and, well, it’s just been a lot for me to handle. I’m confident that I’ll get there, but, until then I would really appreciate your prayers. THANK YOU!!! 😀
