You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Isaiah 26:3 NLT
Sometimes we become weary and fearful of what's to come. But God knows how to guide our thoughts and help us stay focused. He knows how to help us surrender fear and leave our worries behind.
The Bible says, "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 reminds us God steers us in the right direction and knows the longing of our hearts. He arms us with peace and gives us strength to find it.
Fear will never allow us to BELIEVE good will come. We must remain faithful and PRAY! God will reveal what He wants us to see when we choose to open our eyes. If we leave doubt behind, He will provide clarity and help us recognize what's been missing.
We mustn’t worry if things don’t go as planned. God is working for the good! He will lead us through struggles. Peace will nurture gratitude. We must allow ourselves to feel His nudging and be ready to faithfully respond.
FAITH will see us through. One day we will look back and understand the power of His plan. If we choose to focus on the love of His strength, we will find courage to stand in truth. God will make us stronger than before. He will show us the reward which come from trusting Him completely.
Dear God, thank you for the power of Your love. It brings strength in the changes of our lives. Help us focus on the love of Your faithfulness as we bravely journey together. You fill our hearts with everything we need to find peace in Your presence. We will surrender fear and open our eyes to the clarity You provide when we focus on YOU. Thank You, Lord! You are worthy of praise EVERY day of our lives. Only YOU can lead us to a place of fullness. We love you and treasure Your love for us. Amen
