But I am trusting you, O Lord. I said, “You alone are my God; my times are in your hands.” Psalm 31: 14 TLB
God opens our eyes to welcome the offering of each new day. Sometimes we wake in strength; ready to embrace all He provides. And sometimes we wake in worried thoughts of wonder. We feel anxious, weak and forget how it feels to welcome the peace of God’s presence.
God loves us! We were created us for His great purpose. He guides and provides for our days. He arms us with everything we need. He longs for us to commune with Him before we choose to rise. He humbles our hearts when we pray. And He helps us remember why we must TRUST Him in ALL things.
The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3: 5. We don’t have figure out life on our own! God wants us to surrender fear and let go of anxiety. When we trust in Him, He lays a path of purpose and prepares us to follow. He readies us to rise. “But in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” Proverbs 3: 6
It will be hard to leave doubt behind, if we don't learn how to TRUST. But God will show us how! He will help us remain faithful and remind us who will handle ALL things. He will help us remember He is with us EVERY day of our lives. And as we pray for Him to guide, He will provide! There will never be a day without the power of His love.
Before we move ahead, we must learn to accept God's strength and learn how it feels to TRUST. We must seek His peace and surrender what's been hiding in the layers of our doubt. God WILL give us strength and hope for the future. NOTHING will happen that He can't handle. We must surrender in trust, believe in His promises and choose to begin this day in PRAISE! Truly, God deserves our faithful TRUST.
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your love. Thank you for replacing anxious thoughts with grateful thoughts of praise. Show us how it feels to discover perfect peace. Help us find strength, so we will stop trying to figure out everything on our own. We will love you with all of our hearts and give You the praise You deserve. Thank you, Lord! Thank you for cradling us in Your care and taking care of what we need. We WILL choose to faithfully TRUST in YOU. Amen
