And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, and have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV
God renews a spirit of hope when we faithfully call on Him and believe in the power of His plan. He has purpose for our days. He prepares us to examine our lives and see what happens if we remain faithful. He provides clarity and wisdom when we call on Him and remember who is working for the good.
While we are reflecting, Jesus opens our eyes to see what’s ahead. He makes His presence known in ways we never could have imagined. He leads us where we learn to follow. He takes the burdens we surrender and helps us clearly see what needs to be done to welcome the presence of peace. And when we have been humbled to receive, He nurtures the heart of our love.
God’s love is constant and everlasting. He IS ALWAYS with us. Sometimes we forget we don’t have to handle life on our own. We lose sight of how it feels to be guided. We step ahead on our own and become weary when things don’t work as planned and forget we are held together by the One who knows where we will arrive.
There will be challenges along the way and we will become frustrated. But God will lift our spirits as He grows our faith and love. He will help us recognize what needs to be done and lead us where reward will come. He will help us understand life wasn’t meant to be handled on our own. And He will open our hearts for Him.
We must TRUST completely! We won’t be able to feel the power of His presence unless we let go and let God reveal the purpose of His plan. He will change our lives and remind us who’s in charge of ALL THINGS. He will place HOPE in our hearts as we seek Him and allow ourselves to be led. “God will lead us through whatever He leads us to.” He is God! We must remember; even though the future is unclear, He WILL ALWAYS work for the good in our lives.
Dear God, Thank you for your everlasting love. Forgive us when we forget who is working for the good. Ready us to serve You with all of our hearts and prepare us to find PEACE in the power of Your plan. We will trust You all the days of our lives and never forget how lucky we are to be loved by YOU. Thank you, Lord for opening our eyes. Help us clearly be reminded that we need YOU. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
