God’s Book

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

“In Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape.” – Psalm 139:16 AMPC

Holding the reader’s attention can be a challenge for writers. According to one study, fewer than 20% of readers read past the headline of articles. The same principle is true for novels. Readers may pay attention for a time but most quickly lose interest.

How would we approach our lives if they were written like a book? Would we be intrigued by the situations we face? Would we wonder what will happen next? What will be the basis of our decisions? What will be the conclusion of the story? Will there be a happy ending?

The Bible tells us God has written a book about each of us. As David wrote here, “all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape.” David realized that God had no doubts about the outcome of world events or the resolution of each life. To Him, there are no mysteries about the obstacles or the problems. The only question is whether we will trust Him or cooperate with Him.

Today, remember that God has written all your days in His book before they took shape. He knows what will happen next. You do not need to worry or be afraid. Instead of letting these emotions fill your heart, turn your thoughts toward God. Seek Him in prayer. Fill your mind with His Word, and declare His promises to be true. You can trust Him.


Reflection Question: How will you show that you’re trusting God with your future?

Father, thank You that every day of my life has been written in Your book. I trust in You and commit my life to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
