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 a blind faith, but a faith 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, all human hope exhausted yet he said, “But I am trusting!” Today, let go. Hear God’s voice, see 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

Wait On God

new-2TODAY’S VERSE
So the LORD must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the LORD is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help.
Isaiah 30:15—18 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
The Lord longs to be gracious to us. We see it in today’s passage. By His own choice, God created us, knowing that we would be obstinate, fickle and slow in responding to His love. He knew and yet He put himself in a place of waiting for us to come to Him so He can show us His great love and compassion. Why does He do this? Why does He wait for us to respond to Him? Because He is faithful to us. His love is not like ours. His love is eternal, unfathomable, unconditional and unfailing. So, He waits. And what is so ironic, is that He waits for us to wait on Him. When we have tried everything else, when we have panicked, obsessed, returned from running away, quit our procrastination or stopped trying to do everything by ourselves, He bids us to come to Him and wait for Him to love and help us. And when we finally wait, He blesses us and meets our deepest needs. Today, quit hurrying and scurrying and come to Him. He is waiting for you to wait on Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, I admit that I worry and run around trying to fix things by myself. Forgive me for not trusting You. Today I come and pour my worries at Your feet. Guide me, help me, bless me I pray as I wait on You for all my needs.
AMEN

God’s Presence

TODAY’S VERSE
You hide them in the shelter of your presence.
Psalms 31:20 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is hard to fathom how magnificent God really is. He is so great that when Elijah was at a mountain speaking to God, all God had to do was pass by and there was a great wind, earthquake and fire. Moses knew God perhaps more than any living man so when he was ready to take the people into the wilderness, He begged God to be present with them. As an assurance Moses asked God to show him His presence. God replied, “I will make all my goodness pass before you, and I will call out my name, Yahweh, before you.- But you may not look directly at my face, for no one may see me and live.” As well, David, a man whom the Bible says “was a man after God’s own heart,” comes to God in the midst of all his trouble and says, “How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you. You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world. You hide them in the shelter of your presence.” God’s presence, how mighty, how breathtaking, how personal and how available. Come to God today. Join Elijah, Moses and David and enjoy the shelter of God’s presence.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Oh Father, how I thank You for the death of Your Son, Jesus, so I can come boldly into Your presence and find all the love, peace and joy I will ever need. Let me sense Your presence in my life today. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Gateway Of Hope

TODAY’S VERSE
I will – transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope.
Hosea 2:15 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We have our valleys of trouble don’t we. In this particular passage the troubles were self inflicted. How many times have we been the cause of our own troubles? And yet, God’s mercies are not shaken. His love for us does not stop! Instead, He turns our valley of trouble into a gateway of hope. What a beautiful metaphor. A gateway is an escape from trouble and a doorway to hope. Isn’t that how God works? He takes our smallest step toward escape and turns it into a journey of hope. Today, no matter what trouble you have, no matter how hopeless it seems, God wants to give you a way out. You may be in a deep, deep valley of trouble, but today God wants to turn it into a gateway of hope. Come and let Him transform your trouble.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, You know the trouble I have. You have said that You would transform my valley of troubles into a gateway of hope. How I need that transformation. Work in my heart now, dear Lord. Show me the way, that I may follow it, and find the peace, joy and rest I have been looking for.
AMEN

Christ’s Peace

TODAY’S VERSE
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Colossians 3:15 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
I love how the peace of Christ and thankfulness go together. Heartache, suffering, disappointment causes much pain. Paul knew this from being in prison, shipwrecked, starving, stoned, left for dead and being hunted down like a criminal. And yet, through the peace of knowing Christ, Paul was able to give thanks. And why did giving thanks matter? Because giving thanks is the key to returning to joy from painful emotions and circumstances. It is handing over the steering wheel to someone else more capable then us to drive when we are under so much duress. And so today, give it all to Christ. Come to Him who is able to give you peace even when thanksgiving seems so far away. His peace will comfort. His peace will sustain. His peace will return you to joy and a thankful heart.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, it is hard to give thanks in all things. I need Your peace, that passes all understanding, to rule in my heart. Come in the power of Your Holy Spirit and fill me where I cannot fill myself. In Jesus Name I give you thanks.
AMEN

Worship Him

TODAY’S VERSE
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.
Psalms 29:2 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We were made to worship God. How can this be? We are so finite, so far from God. Yet in all our finiteness there is something in us that yearns to connect to the divine. There is a part of us that wants to know that there is more than this life of human frailty and a fatalistic outlook. We desire to know that there is a plan and a master creator behind the plan. David knew this and invites us to participate in the secret to life. David bids us to come and worship God in the splendor of His Holiness. What is so ironic is that God’s Holiness, in its purest form, is unknowable by human understanding. God’s Holiness is the attribute that makes Him transcendent and separate from all else. Likewise, His wisdom, knowledge, power, love and purity are way beyond our comprehension. And so we worship. We come to God with a reverent honor and adoring reverence and know with our spirit what we cannot always know with our mind. And God, in His great love for us, allows us to love and adore Him. Come today and tell God how much you love Him. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness.

TODAY’S PRAYER
My Lord and my God. Though I cannot begin to understand the depths of who You are, I worship You today in the splendor of Your Holiness. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

Faith To Forgive

TODAY’S VERSE
Even if that person wrongs you seven times a day and each time turns again and asks forgiveness, you must forgive.” The apostles said to the Lord, “Show us how to increase our faith.”
Luke 17:4-5 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
Whoever said forgiveness was easy didn’t have much to forgive. It can be hard, very hard, especially when we try to do it by ourselves. That’s why Jesus was challenging His disciples to be bold in their forgiveness. He said, “Even if a person asks forgiveness seven times a day you must forgive!” I love the response of the disciples. They asked for more faith. Why did they do that? Because forgiveness is more divine than human. Forgiveness is all about faith. When our armor of rules, safety and protection is compromised; when all sense of right and wrong is violated; when our belief in a sensible world is shattered, it is hard to forgive someone. And it is hard to believe what we thought was true about God and the world we live in, are still true. It takes faith to trust God when we have been wounded. It takes faith when we have to return an act of hate with an act of love. It takes faith when our soul cries for revenge, justice and punishment and God calls for grace. We need faith to believe that God knows, God cares and that God will heal, rebuild and restore us. So today, search your heart. Is there someone you need to forgive? Ask God for faith.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father God, increase my faith in who You are and Your Supernatural love for me. Help me trust You so I can let go and forgive those that I have refused to forgive. Help me see Your ways and not mine. Help me to forgive others in the same way You have forgiven me.
In Jesus’ name.
AMEN
