Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
God guides and provides. Our loving Father knows the plans He has for our days. He prepares us for what’s to come and helps us learn how it feels to TRUST. He provides purpose for our lives.
TRUST is defined as a “firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something”. Often, we forget it's needed to welcome PEACE. It humbles our hearts and sets the stage to experience mercy and grace. It allows us to remember we don’t have to handle life on our own.
If days were perfect, we would move ahead with ease. But life doesn’t work that way. We face unexpected circumstances and pray for courage when we don't know where to go. But God guides us! He shows us the way when we stand at the crossroads and wonder... The One who navigates our steps brings PEACE in His presence. He lays a path to follow and longs for us to understand why we need Him.
God will help us learn to be patient. He will teach us lessons along the way. He will demonstrate the power of His love and help us persevere. Strength will come if we choose to TRUST. God will manage our steps, even if we have no idea where He is taking us.
Dear God, thank you for helping us learn to TRUST. Forgive us when we forget You know where we're going...Prepare us to welcome the power of Your love and surrender our fear. As we step ahead, remind us who plans our days. Give us STRENGTH only YOU provide. We will offer the prayers of our praise and gratefully remember who is guiding us. Thank you for growing our faithfulness. We are blessed by Your presence of PEACE. Thank you for helping us understand WHY we can ALWAYS count on YOU. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
