Daily Devotional December 18 - God Is Thinking About You

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."  Jeremiah 29:11 

Just because there are many ways offered by various religious groups doesn't mean that those ways are credible.
God is not in competition with anyone.
God is not concerned that you or someone you know or some guru from Nepal is going to come up with a better plan or a better way than His plan.
There is no book that God needs to be concerned about - One that might reveal something that God forgot to tell us in the scriptures.
God is not at all moved with the thousands of varieties of religious beliefs and religions that add to or take away from God's inspired Word.
God is not at all surprised when Islam or Hinduism or Taoism attempts to stake a claim as a viable authority into the heart of God.
God is not concerned that the whole world seeks after something or someone other than His Son to fulfill their inner desire to know their creator.
God is not a bit distraught that spiritist, crystal ball readers, palm readers and card readers make money off of the vulnerable and ignorant public at large.
God is not moved by all the skeptics that think that the bible is just a history book and a not very accurate one at that.
God is not worried that scientist will discover that we were once monkeys and that the earth did begin by two stars colliding 5 billion years ago, give or take a few billion years.
God is not unsettled that politicians would refer to God as, an "opiate to the masses"
God is not moved by the poets referring to Him as the one that isn't.
God is not moved by the philosopher's final analysis that, "God is dead." We have come to learn that Notradamos is dead, not God.
God is not worried when satan and all his demons make up some new potion for people to try - or when satan repackages imitations of God's Word and sells them as philosophy.

Why is God not moved when it seems like the world is falling apart?  Because God has a plan and you are in it.
