Wherever You Are

Even when we can’t see God, He is present. Listen to Him in your Bible reading time and in your prayer time. Wherever you are; at work, in your neighborhood, at home with young kids, helping an older parent – you might be in your position in life for a reason and you may be the only one that can make a difference with God’s help.

In difficult days, Esther discovered that God was always there and He is for us too. Nothing is going to stop God so why not be a part of what He is doing. Ask Him what the mission is. You may have been born to help Him with that mission. The world is different today because Esther lived, said something, and did something with faith. Here’s a song to inspire us to do the same: The Stand – Hillsong.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Hebrews 12:1-2

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
