RCL Daily Devotion for Thursday, January 17, 2019
RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
O if I could be like the elephant and never forget who created me! Isn’t that the thing, though? It’s very easy to forget about God and God’s conviction to continue to stay with us, even though we so often turn back to things that do not give life.
The prophet Jeremiah dealt with the same problem with God’s people back in that time—the people had forgotten where they came from and turned away. Why is it so easy for people to forget? I don’t know the answer to this. But what I do know is that God never forgets. God also never gives up on us.
And for that, I’m very grateful.
Help me remember today, O God, that you are there for me always. Amen.
