“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
Often we forget God can do what we cannot. He created us to recognize He can do ALL things. God designed us to live with a heart of HOPE. He provides what we need to faithfully believe He will take care of every single thing.
Sometimes, faith becomes lost in the worries of our wonder. We have difficulty finding rest in the Savior. The human side of weakness makes us feel weary and afraid. We worry about what’s to come. But God guides and provides. And, when we need to be held by the love of His greatness, He pours HOPE in the sores of the soul. He makes room for FAITH to grow. He gives us STRENGTH!
God uses circumstances in our lives to help us learn to TRUST. And when we forget who is working in our days, He finds the way to remind us. He opens our eyes to feel the depth of His holiness and leads us to a prayer of praise. He helps us remember we are not alone.
God will handle ALL things. He will help us find the way to manage our days. He has a plan for each one of us. HE is the ONE who provides HOPE for the future. The Bible says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 This is a promise we must believe!
God will give us what we need to persevere. He will arm us with everything we need to handle this day. If we surrender our burdens, He will help us understand how to put our faith in Him. He will hear the prayers of our hearts. And, when we have found HOPE in the promise of His presence, He will give us rest. He will show us how it feels to embrace the blessing of a grateful heart. And, He will give us courage to keep on going…
Dear God, Thank you for waking us to another day of purpose. Forgive us when we forget to put our faith in You. Arm us with everything we need to remember who’s in charge of ALL things. Help us find strength in this day. We will find HOPE in the presence of Your peace as we remain faithful. Thank you for the power of Your love. We will receive it with a grateful heart of praise. Amen
