Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3: 5-6
There will be moments when PRAISE will come; expressions of thankfulness for all God has done to bless our lives. But there will also be moments we need help to witness His timely rewards, experience His faithfulness and be readied to TRUST Him with all of our hearts.
The Bible says, Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me. Psalm 51: 10 NLT Sometimes we need to have a thorough cleaning so God will renew the love of our faithfulness and help us remember His timing is not our own. We will need to examine our hearts and recognize the love of His faithfulness IS a blessing!
When we begin to understand the power of His plan, God helps us recognize WHY we need Him. He makes His presence known and opens our eyes to witness His greatness. He helps us learn to live without the expectation of reward and be blessed by how He guides and provides.
We should show gratitude for the ONE who loves completely and rewards us EVERY day of our lives! God is SO faithful! His mercies are new each and EVERY morning. From the moment we open our eyes, He allows us to LOOK for the Good and BELIEVE we will find it. God WILL hold us together by the power of His LOVE. Isn’t that reason enough to PRAISE Him?
Dear God, Your love is so powerful! Thank you! You know how to open our eyes and help us witness what You choose to provide. YOU are deserving of LOVE and PRAISE! Forgive us when we forget to notice how greatly You take care of us. Renew our hearts so we will focus on the GIFTS of Your greatness and stop trying to figure out everything on our own. Help us remember our greatest blessings WILL always come from the love of a grateful heart. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, so very much. Amen
