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 longs for us to receive Him, but sometimes we forget to seek Him with all of our hearts. We race ahead without the strength of the Savior and wonder why we struggle in our lives. Now more than ever, we need to remember Jesus IS with us. He wants us to welcome the power of His love and learn how it feels to TRUST.
Often, we try to move ahead on our own and wonder why things don’t happen as planned. But Christ leads us back to the Father. The gentle Shepherd cares for His flock. When we’re lost in ditches of doubt, He pulls us back where we belong and demonstrates the love of His faithfulness. He carries us in STRENGTH as we recognize who IS working in our days.
God shows His love and covers us with mercy and grace. While we are held in calm, He humbles the heart of our need. He nurtures a prayer of praise when we've recognized there's power in His name.
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 remember God IS with us. Regardless of the circumstances we face, He is HERE! If we take time to seek Him and open our hearts to His will, He will arm us with EVERYTHING we need.
God will set the stage for what’s to come and honor the love of our faithfulness. He IS a good, good Father. He knows our prayers even before we speak. He is working for the GOOD in our lives. There will never be a day without His amazing love.
Dear God, thank you for moments to be reminded who is working in our lives. Forgive us when we forget who handles every single thing. Humble our hearts in the prayers of our need and remind us STRENGTH comes from YOU. We will begin this day in praise and choose to be grateful. Thank you for working for the GOOD. You always know what we need. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
