RCL Daily Devotion for Monday, February 4, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

Text here, if relevant. Otherwise hide.

With all of the suffering and pain that happens in the world and within people’s lives, a person has to wonder whether or not God cares. The subject of why suffering happens (or is allowed to happen) in a world where the Creator God is considered “good” has been a subject argued over and pondered since the dawn of time.

Consistently throughout scripture, we’re given the assurance that God remembers—God remembers where we were little kids playing with the neighbor children. God also remembers our suffering—all of our suffering. That despite what conclusions we might come to on appearances alone, God does, indeed, remember and will not let injustice slide.

Now THAT is a matter of faith. Big time.

God, remember me. Know the struggles I fight against and the path of freedom I yearn for. In your name, amen.
