Focus for August - I Know There is No One Like God!

A couple months ago I wrote about what we focus on in children's ministry. I said, "When it comes to children's ministry there is often more than one thing to focus on . . . the vision for the ministry, selecting the resources to best help you accomplish your vision, sharing your vision with others, finding, training, supporting volunteers, communicating effectively with parents . . . the list could, and often does, go on and on. but what is your real focus? What is the one thing you really need to keep at the top of your list? I believe it is spiritual growth. We can not give to others what we do not have for ourselves. I provided twelve things to focus on from Psalm 86, so at the beginning of each of the coming twelve months, I'll post about the monthly focus and encourage us all to keep our focus on growing in our own walk with Jesus!"

In June I focused on depending on God and putting myself in His hands and in July I focused on crying to God for help because I know I can call on Him and I'm confident He will answer! So, today - and all month - let's take a look at what it means to us to know there is no one like God!

Look at Psalm 86:8,9 - "There's no one quite like you among the gods, O Lord, and nothing to compare with your works. All the nations you made are on their way, ready to give honor to you, O Lord," There is no one like God and nothing compares with His works! Make this your prayer as you go through the month of August -

"Dear God on this day I want to give honor to You, O Lord, because there is no one like You and nothing compares to Your works! As I go through this day please lift my heart in praise to You as You show me all the many ways, big and small, which showcase how great You are! Please remind me when I'm frustrated or when I worry You are great and nothing compares to Your works! Thank You, Amen!"
