Leave It With God

TODAY’S VERSE
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Life can become so complicated. How often do we need wisdom to navigate our way through the various problems we run into. Thankfully, as Christians, we don’t have to go through this alone; we have the Lord. Solomon gives us the secret. He writes that we need to trust in the Lord with all our hearts. However, Solomon knew how hard that is. He warns us that the temptation is to give our problem to God then take it back and depend on our own understanding. Instead, wise Solomon tells us to seek God’s will in everything we do, and the Lord will show us which way we need to go. Today, turn your situation over to God and leave it there. Trust Him and let Him direct your path.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, forgive me for trying to make it on my own. I need You. I need Your direction in my life. As I seek Your will, please show me the way to go.
Amen

Keeping Our Promises

TODAY’S VERSE
Stay here for now, and may the LORD help you keep your promise.
I Samuel 1:23 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We live in a world that doesn’t honor its word. This is especially true of a promise made with the wrong motives, a promise that is more like “let’s make a deal” than a serious commitment. Often we want something and will manipulate it with a promise to get it. Other times we try to avoid inevitable consequences using promises as currency to buy our way out of trouble. But this is not the way Jesus taught us. He said to make our “Yes” a “Yes” and our “No” a “No.” It is easy to fail at keeping our promises even when we have the best of intentions. There are so many distractions, so many important things vying for our attention that we can begin to serve the “urgent” at the expense of the promises we made. Integrity is key to the Christian life, and we need to repent when we stray from keeping our word. Today, let us keep our promises and commit ourselves to follow through on what we say we will do.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me keep my word. Help my “Yes” be a “Yes” and my “No” a “No.” Might I serve You by keeping my promises.
AMEN

Trust

TODAY’S VERSE
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NTL)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Sometimes you just have to trust. You know what it’s like. You are sitting there and “bam” – the sky starts falling. You are caught off guard. Your head starts spinning, and you feel sick to your stomach. Gasping for breath, you start accessing your situation. For some, adrenalin starts to kick in, and you hang on for the ride. For others, you just go numb. Indecision, blocked from thinking, you sit there. You, too, are on a ride, even if it doesn’t feel like you are going anywhere. And that is when you have to trust. You’re thrown into an unwanted journey where you need your faith. It is a desperate time, and you can’t depend on our own understanding. Instead, you must seek His will, and God promises that He will show you which way to go. So today, hang on. God knows your situation. He knows and deeply cares. Come to Him. Quit trying to figure it out and trust. He is there. He will show you the way.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord, I surrender. I don’t know what to do. I don’t know which way to go. I will quit depending on my own understanding and will trust in You with all my heart. I need Your supernatural wisdom and guidance. Please show me which way to go. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Your Will Be Done

TODAY’S VERSE
He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”
Matthew 26:39

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Obedience is not the absence of doubt or fear. It is an act of faith and trust. Jesus was a perfect example. He knew that His purpose was to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world. Jesus also knew that His death would be an excruciating, painful ordeal. In His anguish, He came to God His Father and asked if it was possible to let His suffering be put off. But in the next breath, He submitted to His crucifixion with gut-wrenching faith. Against His desire to be free from such terrific agony, He trusted His loving Father. His Father, our Almighty God, almighty in love, in knowledge, and power. Our Lord Jesus modeled the faith and trust that you and I need to live the life God has for us. He prayed, “I want Your will to be done, not mine.” That’s it, isn’t it? That says it all. Faith and obedience come together. Love and trust intersect. What is it you are struggling with? What is it that you cannot understand? What difficulties have you at your wits’ end? Come to God. Follow Christ, and in faith surrender yourself to your loving Father and pray what Jesus prayed, “Not my will Lord, but Your will be done.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, there are so many times that I don’t know what to do. I am so perplexed, so troubled, but today I choose faith. I choose You. I choose to trust Your love and pray that “Your will” be done in my life. In Jesus’ name I pray.
AMEN

Have Faith and Trust God

TODAY’S VERSE
For they did not believe God or trust him to care for them.
Psalms 78:22 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There is a fine line between trust and faith. The Children of Israel were in the wilderness, a rugged and barren land. It was a cruel and challenging existence. Even though God had promised to take care of them, they did not believe it. It was hard for them to rely on God to provide for them. It is hard to trust with your mind when your feet are in a precarious place. This is when we need faith. We trust God as we put our faith in Him. Faith believes that God “is” and is able to care for us. That is where the Israelites failed. Like us, instead of faith, they chose murmuring and complaining. They looked around and saw nothing but rocks and hot and barren land. They did not believe God would take care of them. Today, might we consider the reality of God being in our situation. Might we trust Him for a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night. Might we taste the Manna and drink the water from the rock. Today, let us rejoice, for He is Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord, our provider.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, forgive me for my complaining. Forgive me when I forget that You love me and are my provider. I lay my needs at Your feet and give You all my trust and faith.
AMEN

Trust In Him

TODAY’S VERSE
O LORD of Heaven’s Armies, what joy for those who trust in you.
Psalms 84:12 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Who do you trust? Whether or not you have joy depends on it. How many times have we put our trust in those things that did not deliver? Our friends, programs, fortune, our strength, a great plan – how many times have our hopes been smashed because our trust was in the wrong place? Today, God is calling. The Almighty, the Lord of all of Heaven’s Armies, says, “Trust in me. Give me your hope. Have faith in my strength and my unfailing love for you.” And so, we move in closer. Barely one hope left – yet that is enough. A mustard seed of faith is all it takes, and God delivers. His love is sure, His promises are true, our joy is secure. Today, put your trust in Him and return to joy.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, You proved Your love for me on the Cross. Today, I come and put my trust in You. Increase my faith, breathe hope into the depths of my soul and return me to joy. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Trust God

TODAY’S VERSE
Trust in the LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There are those times. You know, when everything around us seems to be falling apart, and nothing we do seems to be working. When even our prayers seem to be bouncing off the ceiling. It is on days like this that we need to trust in God. Trust Him with all our heart. Trust in God even if everything points toward the opposite. We dare not depend on our understanding. Instead, we need to trust His love for us and seek His will in all we do. Then God promises that He will show us which direction we should go. Today, give your situation to God. Trust Him with all Your heart, and let Him direct Your path.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, I come to You with my situation. You know my needs. Help me trust in You and not depend on my own understanding. Direct my path today, I pray.
AMEN

Faith During The Storm

TODAY’S VERSE
The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped, and all was calm. Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?”
Luke 8:24-25 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The disciples were in a boat when a fierce storm came up. It was so fierce that they panicked. They woke Jesus crying and shouting, “Master, we are going to drown.” Jesus simply woke up and calmed the storm. Then He asked, “Where is your faith?” We are so in the boat. Tossed and turned by life’s waves, we too start doubting the love and power of God. Now, on the one hand, the disciples did cry out to Jesus, which counted for something. On the other hand, they were acting out in total fear as if Jesus were not there. How could that be? How, after all, they had seen all the miracles, the raising of the dead, the blind seeing, how could they still panic when Jesus is right next to them? The truth is, they still didn’t know who Jesus really was. After Jesus cleared away the storm, Luke wrote, “The disciples were terrified and amazed. ‘Who is this man?’ they asked each other. ‘When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!’” Perhaps that’s where we should start. Who is this man? Who is Jesus? Knowing the answer can make all the difference. Today, ask Jesus to help you know Him better. Then perhaps next time a storm comes, you will rest in peace right next to Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Jesus, help me know You better. Help me learn to trust You and rest in the storms of life. Help me have the faith to trust You.
AMEN

I Am Trusting God

TODAY’S VERSE
But I am trusting you, O LORD, saying, ‘You are my God!’ My future is in your hands.
Psalms 31:14-15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
There comes a time when we just have to trust God. Not with blind faith, but confidence built on a solid foundation, a faith with roots going down deep into our being. A place where our primal fears and apprehension collide with our seemingly logic and assumptions. When everything in us says, “Run, hide, quit, fight or give in,” God shows up, and we have to choose. David had to make a choice, and he chose God. He may have been afraid, but he said, “I am trusting.” He may have had advice that was contrary, but he said, “I am trusting.” His back was against the wall, and all human hope exhausted, yet he said, “But I am trusting!” Today, let go. Hear God’s voice, sense His amazing love and power for you and say with David, “But I am trusting you, O LORD – You are my God! My future is in your hands.”

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, help me to trust in You. I know I should, but I am so weak in my faith. Holy Spirit, comfort me, encourage my heart, blow gently on any small amber of faith You find and fan it into a flame. Ignite my heart so I can trust You more. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Chosen By God

TODAY’S VERSE
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;
bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.
Colossians 3:12-13 (NASB)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Some people search all their life for significance. If only I were successful. Perhaps a scholar or a celebrity. If I had fame and fortune, everything would be perfect. Yet all this pales in comparison to what you and I already have. In today’s passage, Paul wrote that you were chosen by God to be holy and loved by Him. God chose you. No random coincidence, God knew you from the beginning of time, and He has called you to be His ambassador of love in this world. He has chosen to give you a new heart of compassion. This new heart changes everything. With it, you can see the whole world differently. Now you have the power to be all God wants you to be. With your heart of compassion, you can be kind, humble, gentle, and patient. Because of God’s love, you can now bear with the shortcomings of others and truly forgive them. Paul said it best, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” What God has called, He will empower. So today, rise up and recognize your calling. God has chosen you to be His ambassador of love.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, thank You for choosing me to be Your ambassador of love. Thank You for my new heart of compassion. Help me today to live in this new reality. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
