Bi-lingual Evangelical Church in Fuente Alamo.
I recently came across a CD that we’ve had for a long time. I don’t know if we had ever played it before and to be honest I’m not very keen on most of it, but as I listened, one track hit me like a ton of bricks and it moved me to talk about what I want to say today.
When we talk about God, we often speak of His love, His power, His glory, His might, His magnificence, His grace, His mercy, His forgiveness. The list goes on and quite rightly so, but there is one wonderful aspect of the Lord’s character that we don’t hear spoken about a great deal and that is what a wonderful, understanding Heavenly Father we have.
‘Understanding’ isn’t a very exciting word, is it? It’s a bit dull. It doesn’t have the same clout as ‘glorious’ or ‘powerful’ or ‘merciful’. ‘Understanding’ sounds a bit tame, even perhaps boring, but for a couple of minutes, I ask you to bear with me.
What is going on in your mind whilst you’re sitting reading this?
Are you sure you remembered what time that favourite TV programme starts?
Isn’t there something else you would rather be doing?
Are you just going along with your usual routine of reading the Chronicle from cover to cover regardless of what the article is about?
I’ll make a confession now. There have been many times in my life that I felt myself drifting away from the Lord, but I knew, in my heart, the direction He wanted me to follow. I just didn’t seem to be able to find the right road to take me where I needed to go. Perhaps I should get a Tom Tom!
The Lord understood my situation and He placed people, thoughts and events into my life to draw me back. Those people know who they are.
He is such an understanding God. He understood my needs. He provided my Tom Tom.
He understands your emotions. He knows where you’ve been.
He understands that sometimes we are going to doubt.
He understands that we are going to struggle.
He understands that we are going to have moments of weakness.
He understands and He wants you home.
He welcomes you just as you are.
Our Sunday morning services start at 11.30am at Calle Espinar 13, Fuente Alamo.
