May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. Psalm 20: 4 NIV
God knows the plans He has for our days. He covers us in mercy and grace. When we BELIEVE in the power of His greatness, He uses circumstances to remind us why we need Him. He allows us to witness the depth of His love and learn how to welcome HOPE. He shows why we must seek His presence as we patiently wait to be blessed.
Sometimes we put our faith in other things and try to convince ourselves we can handle life on our own. We plan our own agendas and forget who manages our days. But God finds the way to remind us why we must TOTALLY TRUST. He humbles our hearts so we will examine our lives and recognize why we need Him.
God gives us the desire to do what is right. He prepares us to serve Him with all of our hearts. He opens our eyes to focus on Jesus and see how it feels to welcome peace. He calms us with reassurance and gives strength to persevere. He guides and provides. And as we learn to be faithful, He prepares us to succeed.
If we stop trying to live on our own, God will show us amazing things! He will adjust our way of thinking as we focus on Him. He will handle our days and place PEACE in our hearts. He will reveal what happens next as we faithfully trust and honor the prayers of our thanks.
God will bless us in the timing of His will. There will never be a day without the love of the Father. He is mighty and worthy of praise! As we triumph in His holiness, He will help us stay on course. If we surrender the selfish side of want and truly believe, He will provide everything we need. He will place JOY where it belongs and show us how it feels to embrace the blessing of a grateful heart.
Dear God, thank you for loving us through the selfish side of want. YOU know our hearts and You know what we need! Help us learn to be patient in the timing of Your will. We will love YOU all the days of our lives and gratefully trust in the plans You have for each of us. Thank you for giving us desire to find fulfillment in what You provide. Help us remain faithful, so we will focus on You and feel the strength of Your presence. And help us never forget, we don’t have to live on our own. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
