When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. Psalm 56: 3 NIV
God opens our eyes to recognize the power of His love. Sometimes we wake in strength, ready to embrace ALL He provides. But sometimes we wake in fearful thoughts of wonder. We forget how it feels to embrace the presence of peace and prepare our hearts to welcome calm.
God loves us! We were created for His great purpose. He guides and provides for our days. He arms us with everything we need and longs for us to connect with Him before we choose to rise. He humbles our hearts so we will learn to understand the blessing of surrender. And He removes weary thoughts that rob us of content.
The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3: 5. We don’t have to figure out everything on our own. God helps us let go of our fear. When we TRUST in Him and praise the power of His greatness, He lays a path of purpose and shows us how to follow. He readies us to rise. “But in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” Proverbs 3:6
We won’t be able to leave doubt behind, if we haven't learned to TRUST. God will help us remain faithful. He will guide us through ALL circumstances and remind us He is near. He will provide PEACE that passes all understanding and demonstrate the love of His faithfulness. He will wait for us to TRUST in Him so He can guide us forward and handle our days.
There will never be a day without His love. God will give us STRENGTH and provide HOPE for what’s to come. NOTHING will happen that He can't handle. We must surrender fear, TRUST in Him, believe in His power to save and begin this day in grateful PRAISE! HE is mighty, holy and worthy of our love. God will ALWAYS take care of those who love Him.
Dear God, thank you for replacing anxious thoughts with grateful prayers of praise. Show us how to find HOPE in YOU. Open our hearts to patiently remember who is working for the good in ALL circumstances. We will find STRENGTH and welcome a heart of TRUST. Thank you for mercy and grace. We will remember why there will never be a day without the presence of Your PEACE. And we will find comfort in ALL You provide. Thank you, Lord. Thank you for the promise of Your everlasting love. It is everything we need to remain faithful. Amen
