Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not depend on your own understanding. In all your ways remember him. Then He will make your paths smooth and straight. Proverbs 3:5-6 NIRV
Sometimes we forget to TRUST in the mighty power of God. We move ahead in our lives and need to be reminded who’s in charge of ALL things. God has a plan for our days. He guides and provides the way for us to be led by His greatness. We DON’T have to figure out everything on our own.
Life becomes hectic! Often, we stress about what’s to come. We struggle in the midst of routine and neglect to seek the Savior. But, when we open our hearts to Jesus, He shows us how to welcome PEACE. He responds to our prayers and leads us to the Father. He shows us how to experience the depth of His love and arms us with everything we need to find HOPE in Him.
Jesus longs for us to experience a living relationship and know Him as Lord of our lives. But, when we focus on other things, we become blinded by selfish pride and have trouble opening our eyes. We forget how it feels to CLEARLY see what waits to be discovered, when we learn to totally TRUST.
If we prayerfully recognize why we need Him, God will remove our doubt. He will help us examine our hearts and remind us why we are blessed. And, if we surrender what holds us back, God will renew us! He will transform our old way of thinking. He will provide STRENGTH to help us persevere. We must listen to the tugging of our hearts and NEVER be afraid to follow Jesus.
Dear God, Thank you for helping us remember who’s in charge of ALL things. You help us find HOPE in the promise of Your love and clear a path of purpose. Forgive us when we forget to TRUST in the power of Your will. We will open our eyes to what You will provide, as we faithfully follow Jesus. Amen
