Just You and God October 25
Food for Thought: Mat. 28:20b
I know of a widow woman who is so desperate to keep her twenty-six- year-old son in her home, that she is driving him away. All her hope is in him. When he’s home, she’s happy. When he’s away, she literally worries herself sick. To top it all off, he has a life-threatening illness that causes her great anguish as the very thought of living without him constantly harries her. While her son should be mindful of honoring her in every way possible, and we do pray for his complete healing, it is to her benefit and his that she be free from the anxiety of depending solely on him.
We pray that she learn that all her life, her hope, and her very being, need to be in the Lord and not in any man. There is a relationship with God that no man can replace. When all confidence is in Him, everything else falls into place. With that understanding, the widow would be in a position of faith, not fear, to stand for her son’s healing.
Let’s take account of just where we place our hope for our well-being. Is it in a doctor? A pastor? A friend? A boss? A parent? A son? No one can take the place of our Lord. He is our refuge and only source of life.
