This week, we move from understanding why “no one is good except God alone” (Mark 10:17) to focusing on salvation as a free gift from God.
This devotional series is focused on the theme: God Is, from Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Have you taken the time to stop what you are doing, to cease and desist all activity, and to truly reflect upon what God has done and currently is doing?
This week we move from this overarching theme and begin to focus upon the attributes of God. For the next three weeks we will focus upon the fact that God is Good!
In an unprecedented and momentous occasion for Redwood Christian Schools, history was made as the Junior Varsity football team took to the field for their inaugural tackle football game against the John F. Kennedy High School Titans. This event marked the first time in the school's 54-year history that a football team had been assembled. Led by head coach Tolopa Faumuina and supported by assistants Cheyenne Tuufuli, Xavier Vaesau, and Scott Skjong, the RCS Eagles showcased unwavering grit and determination despite a 32-0 defeat.
The historic day wasn't just about football, as it also marked the public debut of the RCS Cheerleading squad, led by coach Emily Driggers. The cheerleaders added an extra layer of enthusiasm to the event, supporting the team and the entire RCS community.
In a world that constantly demands our attention, action, and reaction, the call to "be still" is counterintuitive. However, this call to stillness is an invitation to surrender to the sovereign presence of God. Psalm 46:10 encapsulates a profound truth – the assurance that God is the ultimate authority over all creation. In embracing this truth, we find peace and the cause of faith that sustains us.
This week's devotion focuses on God's actions in Psalm 46, the profound truths that remind us of God's unwavering presence, power, authority, and protection during life's turmoil. It begins and ends with the same idea: God is always with us, no matter what.
Verse 1 proclaims, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble." In moments of turmoil, we find comfort in knowing God is our stronghold and a source of unyielding support. What has God done in the past as your stronghold and support? What is God doing in your life today? Just as God has been your stronghold and support in the past, trust that He continues to be your ever-present help today.
