"Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him." James 1:12 NIV
God loves us! When trials are difficult to bear, He shows how to faithfully trust. He gives guidance for our days and strength to keep on going. As we seek His guidance and faithfully persevere, He provides what we need. As we seek Him with all of our hearts, He helps us remember we are held by the power of amazing love.
God orchestrates our lives. And when the timing is right, He reveals the purpose of His plans. He nurtures our desire to trust Him even more and sets the stage for peace to find us.
We will have struggles and find ourselves in situations that are difficult. Try as we might, we will become weary and worn. But Christ will know how to lead us back where we belong. By the love of His faithfulness, we will experience mercy and healing.
We must never doubt God’s ability to guide and provide for our days. While we are held by the love of His faithfulness, we will find peace and give Him the credit He deserves. We will remember who is working for the good. Let us rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying. Romans 12:12 NLT
Dear God, thank you for handling our days. Forgive us when we forget to rely on the power of Your greatness. Help us step closer to You as we follow Jesus and find strength while we’re cradled in His care. We will trust You all the days of our lives and find clarity as we’re guided by You. Open our eyes to clearly see the power of Your plan and provide peace in our patience as we learn to gratefully trust. Thank you for loving us through every single thing that happens in our lives. YOU are worthy of praise in ALL circumstances. Thank you, Lord. Thank you ! Amen
