An Invitation for You

"Forever, O Lord, Thy word is settled in Heaven. Thy faithfulness continues throughout all generations; Thou didst establish the earth, and it stands. They stand this day according to Thine ordinances, For all things are Thy servants."

Psalms 119:89-91

Those ancient words bring comfort in a world full of uncertainty. We live in uncertain times. It's scary out there. We need only turn on the news, check the balances on our retirement accounts, or look at the brokenness within our own families to be reminded that nothing seems certain. Nothing. But still we long for certainty. We long for something that we can count on. Something to be sure of.

King David, who wrote the above words, lived in an uncertain world. His life was riddled with uncertainty and danger. Family jealousy. Political intrigue. War. Betrayal. Depression. Ridicule. Yet David was secure in the certain knowledge that God was faithful and God's truth eternal. How did he cling to that certain knowledge? Practice. He practiced citing the truth of God's character.

There are certain truths we can take hold of and count on. The verse above tells us that God's word is settled -- it is a sure thing. Everything else may seem unsettled, precarious, and uncertain, but God's word is sure.

Through His eternal word we can know His character. We can know He is present with us, will lead us, and will hold us securely; that He has a plan for us and it is good. Such truth cannot only chase away the fears that plague us, but can build courage and strength into our lives. To see such certainties, we have to be looking in the right place. We need to turn our eyes toward the Source of Truth: Absolute Truth.

In theory, that sounds so easy. A pat spiritual answer -- just focus on God's truth, found in His word, and our fears will just melt away. So why do I worry and fret? Why is it so hard to trust God during times of uncertainty? Personal experience has shown me a few uncomfortable realities about myself. I have a short memory for truth when the trials of life pile in on me. I suspect you are the same way. So what, then, is the answer? What will help us remember and apply truth to life when we need it? What will help us conquer our fears?


We need to practice God's certain truths over and over again as we meet each new uncomfortable challenge in our lives. Like King David did. Growing in faith is a process -- an ongoing lifelong process. It is a choice. A decision we make to take God's truths and apply them to our own life. When fear, worry, and anxiety invade your thoughts and feelings, rather than beating yourself up, recognize that such moments are simply the evidence that God is about to build new faith and strength into your life if only you turn to Him for the wisdom He promises to give to all who ask for it. This is the purpose of this book -- to help us consider, focus upon, and practice the certain truths of God.

As I write this, I have just completed the book Fear Not Tomorrow, God Is Already There, in which I explore how to trust God in uncertain times. This devotional, which can be used as a companion or follow-up to that book or as a stand-alone book, has provided me with a way to practice and apply God's certain truths in my own life uncertainties. My hope and prayer is that it does the same for you.

I invite you to focus on God's certain truths in your uncertain times.

Day 1

Welcome God by Name

Those who know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; for Thou, O L ord, hast not forsaken those who seek Thee.

Psalm 9:10

What's in a name? Plenty! We greet one another by name. We introduce people by name. We offer our own names to others when we want to strike up a connection or initiate a conversation. Let's face it. Names matter.

When we read through the Scriptures, we run across whole lists of names. I often wondered why -- it makes for rough reading. But God is meticulous about His records and keeping track of names. Names are important to Him. Your name is important to Him.

In Bible times names were significant. They had meaning and were given for a purpose such as a declaration of the parents' desire for a child or as an expression of the parents' convictions or as recognition of divine assistance.

God's names, and there are many, reveal His character. In His Word, God introduces Himself to us through many names: Mighty Creator, Everlasting God, Prince of Peace, Good Shepherd, Refuge, and the list goes on. As we come to know His names, we find it easier to put our trust in Him. How can we not trust the One who is the mighty creator, the one who wants the very best for those He made? And what great confidence we can have in One who is everlasting, for though this world and everything in it is temporary, He will never fade away. When we know His names, His character, we want more of Him. We seek Him out. We discover Him.

Did you know that we are told He will not forsake those who seek Him and that while we are seeking, He does not hide? He says, "I love those who love me, and those who diligently seek me will find me" (Proverbs 8.17) He invites us to actively seek Him out. As we do, we will find that we, too, are being sought by the very One we need the most. He will not forsake us -- ever.

Take a moment to focus on one of God's names, The God Who Sees Me. I love that name! Imagine throwing open the door of your heart and locking eyes with the God who made you and loves you! His loving gaze looks deeply into who you are and loves you unconditionally. How does that truth speak into your situation today? Anticipate your growing trust in God as you discover His true identity.

Heavenly Father, Thank You that Your names enable me to know Your character and how You relate to me. I confess that I don't seek You as I should, but on this day, Lord, I seek You out and long to know You more fully. I am grateful that You know my name and seek me out. You will never forsake me. Thank You. Amen.

HASH(0x9d2a26c0) out of 5 stars Helpful After Tragedy Nov. 16 2010
By K. Burns - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After my daughter's passing this summer, my cousin gave this book to me. It is a devotional meant to last 100 days, but I tended to double up most days. The scriptures chosen are some of my own favorites. Having this book as a companion through this difficult time has been reassuring. I recommend, especially for anyone going through uncertain times in their life.

HASH(0x9d4507f8) out of 5 stars A different kind of daily devotional. June 6 2010
By M. Goodell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beautifully written and so very appropriate for today. It seemed as though the author had a window on my life and knew what I was going to need each day as I read that day's entry. It was such a blessing that I bought 3 to give to some special women in my life.

HASH(0x9d2efb70) out of 5 stars A great book July 16 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book offers much truth and is aligned with reality in this day and age. I have been using this book as my devotional piece with my niece as I strive to bring her more closely to God. There are many experiences stated within which I can relate to especially our gifts and how we use them. Like the writers am not one to go out and preach the word but having prayed about what my gift is and how to apply it I am now able to send out books etc and I have grown because I now find myself speaking one to one on my Father. Thank you

HASH(0x9d1cdcb4) out of 5 stars Good things come in small pacakages June 2 2011
By fefi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This little book is one of the best devotional books I have ever used. The author has experienced most of life's pitfalls. Even though she is the daughter of famed evangelist Billy Graham and grew up in a very spiritual home, as an adult, she suffered many of life's temptations and failures. She never thought God could forgive her, but He did. Because she has suffered so much, she can speak and encourage from experience. I received the book as a gift and immediately ordered several to give to people in need spiritually. As I read it every morning, the message speaks directly to my heart, giving encouragement and strengthing my faith. The author is tremendous yet very humble in her message which is easy to read and understand. I highly recommend everyone to read and put to use it's message. Faye Wilkerson
