Bible Studies for Life Lesson for Sept- 26- The Case for God-s Involvement
September 8 2010 by Phyllis Elvington, speaker, author, member of Tabor City Baptist Church

Focal Passages: Deuteronomy 8:2-5; Psalm 139:7-10; Philippians 2:5-11

When my children were in Mission Friends, I taught Mission Friends. When they were in Children’s Bible Drill, I led Children’s Bible Drill. As they moved on to Youth Bible Drill, I moved to Youth Bible Drill.

And believe it or not, I actually coached both of my boys in cross country and track during their years at Green Sea Floyds High School.

Are you beginning to see a pattern?

I love my boys, and I find great joy in being involved in their everyday lives. Multiply that level of love and involvement by infinity and you’ll get a picture of how much God loves us and how He wants to be involved in every aspect of our lives.

God is not a distant Creator who places us in this world and then leaves us to fend for ourselves. David wrote, “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?” (Ps. 139:7, NIV).

God is always with us. (See Ps. 46:1, Matt. 28:20b, and Rom. 8:35-39.)

God provides for our every need — just as He did for the children of Israel as they wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. “Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years” (Deut. 8:4, NIV).

David put it like this, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want” (Ps. 23:1, NIV).

The apostle Paul explained it this way, “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:19, NIV). I sincerely believe this means your physical needs, your spiritual needs, your emotional needs, your financial needs … Are you beginning to see another pattern?

And that’s not even the best part! God could have sent a representative from Heaven down to Earth to find out how we as a human race were doing. He could have — but He didn’t! He came himself! “Who being in very nature God…being made in human likeness … and being found in appearance as a man…” (Phil. 2:6-8, NIV).

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God … The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (Jn. 1:1, 14, NIV).

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Cor. 5:21, NIV).

Jesus died on the cross in our place to provide a way for us to spend eternity in heaven with Him. I personally think the case for God’s involvement in our lives speaks for itself.

Hallelujah! What a mighty God we serve!
