For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10 NLT
Often, we forget God is able to do what we cannot. He created us to recognize who’s in charge of ALL things. He designed us to live with a heart of HOPE and faithfully BELIEVE He will take care of us and those we love.
Sometimes, faith becomes lost in worry. We have trouble believing we're equipped to do what needs to be done. Doubt makes us feel weary, afraid and unable to see what God sees in us. But He helps us recognize we are valued and loved as we begin to serve Him with a heart of TRUST.
If we focus on Jesus and stop trying to handle life on our own, God will help us find purpose in the power of His plan. He will open our eyes for ALL He provides to remind us who’s in control. Our love for Him will grow as we begin to experience JOY in the journey.
The Bible says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 This is a promise we can believe!
It’s never too late to move in FAITH and respond to God’s nudging. He is HERE and He loves us! He will help us fulfill His will and provides strength to serve Him fully. God will do amazing things when we let go of what’s been holding us back from welcoming opportunities to grow. HE knows exactly what we need to welcome PEACE.
Dear God, thank you for waking us to another day of purpose. Forgive us when we neglect to put our faith in You. Arm us with everything we need to remember who’s in charge of our days and find STRENGTH when we call on You. We will find HOPE in the presence of Your PEACE and remain faithful. Thank you for the power of Your LOVE and creating us to do great things. Help us surrender doubt and release what needs to be freed from our hearts. We are ready to welcome the love of Jesus and gratefully TRUST in You. Thank you, Lord! Amen
