Once in awhile we all need little TLC. Fortunately, God has specialized in giving us tender loving care. So, we are in good hands. God has promised to take care of us until the end of the world:
Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20, MSG)
We can count on God’s promises. No matter how we feel, God is faithful. God will always be there, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age. All we need to do is to cling to Jesus. He did not leave us defenseless, he send the Holy Spirit to us (Luke 24:49). Through the Holy Spirit we are connected to God in prayer. Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him! Make it as clear as you can to all you meet that you’re on their side, working with them and not against them. Help them see that the Master is about to arrive. He could show up any minute!
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. (Phil. 4:4-7, MSG)
So, whenever you feel that you are in need of little TLC, take a pause and pray hard. God will wrap you up in his tender, loving care. Before you know it, a wonderful sense of God’s wholeness will come and settle you down. God wants good things for us. God wants to give us life and more life. Let’s not hide our dysfunctions from him but bring everything than disturbs our peace to him and let him give us as much TLC as we need. God adores to love us and care for us!
