Greeting cards are what I call “universally personal.” They fit everyone in the universe, but when given from one person to another, they become a personal message.
I felt impressed to post a message on my Facebook timeline recently, “I don’t know who this is meant for this morning, but I just felt like I was supposed to post it. God is going to be ‘enough’ for whatever you’re facing today. He will be on time, and His resources are limitless. You can trust the God with a perfect track record. After all, He loved YOU so much that He gave His life for you!”
Comments began popping up with friends saying, “This was for me.” Or “I needed this.” Or “I can use that today.” I know many of the circumstances behind their replies. Some of these folks just lost a loved one. Others were facing scary medical times or had a spouse in the hospital. Some had lost jobs. It brought tears to my eyes as I was reminded once again how God’s Word is universally personal—and how it’s always on time when we need it.
The words tucked inside the covers of our Bibles are meant for all of us, but oh how precious it is when God shines a spotlight on some of them and whispers, “This was for you today.”
A greeting card from the One who loves us, just when we need it.
So since He says it best, I thought I’d share some of those universally personal messages from Him with you today:
In Psalm 56:3, it says, “What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.”
Isaiah 41:10 shares, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’”
Matthew 6:31-32 says, “Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For … your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.”
Jeremiah 29:11 shares, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Friends, I don’t know what you’re facing today, but I can promise you that He will be “enough” and that He has a personal message hidden in His Word that’s just for you.
