A Divine Hug, Not a Coincidence

This morning, during a conversation with the Lord, I took a concern to Him, feeling anxious. Immediately, the scripture about being anxious for nothing, but in everything giving thanks was ushered into my thoughts.

Then, I was thanking Him for the day, and every day that He makes, and these words came to mind, “This is the day the Lord has made and we will rejoice…”

When I picked up my daily devotion book, these scriptures were the two used for the day:

Psalm 118:24 (NIV) This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Philippians 4:19, 6-7 NKJV And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus…Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God, and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

This is not the first time the Lord has backed with scripture the words He brings to my mind, yet, every single time, it feels like a divine hug – a gentle reminder that my Heavenly Father knows my every thought and need, even before I know, and He provides abundantly!

Thank You, Father, for your loving care.

    I cling to the ways He communicates with me directly, personally, touching the need of the moment. I wonder how many times He’s trying to do this, but due to my inattentiveness, I miss it?
