For God is at work within you, helping you want to obey him, and then helping you do what he wants. Philippians 2: 13 TLB

Christ wants us to receive Him, but sometimes we forget why we need the Savior. We forget who is working for the good. We need to be reminded how it feels to be held by Jesus and guided by the strength of His amazing love. 

Often we try to move ahead on our own and become frustrated when things don’t happen as planned. But, Christ leads us to the Father. The Good Shepherd cares for His flock. When we are lost in doubt, He pulls us back where we belong and demonstrates the love of His faithfulness. He carries us in strength as we find reason to remember who is working in our days. 

God shows His love and covers us with mercy. And while we are held in arms of strength, He humbles the heart of our need. He nurtures a prayer of praise when we trust in the power of His presence and find hope in the goodness of His grace. The Bible says, “And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans. Romans 8:28 TLB 

Now, more than ever we need to be reminded God IS with us. He is near... He is HERE! If we take time and open our hearts, He will arm us with EVERYTHING we need to find passion and purpose for what He provides. He will help us remember who has a plan for our days! 

God will set the stage for what’s to come and honor the love of our faithfulness. He knows our prayers even before we speak. He IS working for the GOOD. We will never be without the strength of His amazing love. We must believe in the power of His faithfulness and never forget how very much we are treasured. And we must not forget to TRUST in Him. He knows what's best for our lives. 

Dear God, Thank you for moments to be reminded who is working for the good. Forgive us when we forget who is handling every single thing. Ready our hearts, so we will feel Your guiding and remember YOU have a plan for our days. We will trust in You and find strength to remember; there will never be a day without the power of Your presence in our lives. Thank you, Lord! Thank you for the greatness of Your everlasting love. Amen
