Who Do You Trust Now?

C. S. Lewis said, "Trusting God must be a foundational decision that is not based on our current circumstances. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8). We must be grounded in the belief He travels with us through our days. In our daily prayer, we should invite Him along, as this is how our trust will grow."

All too often when things in our world are causing problems or panic we immediately try to figure out what we should do to fix it, change it, or make it go away.

The thing is, the first thing we should do is go to God and talk to Him. C. S. Lewis is right. We have to make a decision to trust God. That has to be our foundation. Only by trusting Him can we see clearly through the circumstances. He wants good for us.

I tell God what is going on, and how I feel about it. My concerns and cares over it. Then I remind Him that my trust is in Him and that I am putting my worries and the situation into His hands. Trusting Him to work His perfect will for me in this situation; now on earth today just as it is in Heaven. That is the only way I can receive peace in the situation.

Lord, be with me today. I surrender to you my steps seeking your guidance throughout the day. Giving me the wisdom I need to do the things you direct me to do in all situations.

For I trust in You to work everything out for my good according to your word. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

Looking For Solutions To Help Our Families and Communities

     Smith Wigglesworth was a preacher and teacher. I read an interesting fact on him. He did not learn to read until after he married his wife Polly. She taught him to read the Bible. He often stated, “It was the only book he ever read”. He did not permit newspapers in his home, preferring the Bible to be their only reading material.      I dare say that is a rarity today. When I read this, I wondered how many homes today have Bibles. If they have one, how many families read the book collectively as a family and as an individual? Obviously, I don’t have the statistics on that.      However, that got me to thinking, what if! What if families began reading the bible together? What changes would come about in their homes, their lives, and their work? Of course, the changes would spill over in how we see and interact with our neighbors and treat people in our communities. Looking around at the things happening in all our communities such as ––the violence, hatred, rage, anger––

Whatever Storm May Come

Deuteronomy 33:12  The beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him; and the Lord shall cover him all the day long.   H. F. Lyte wrote: " Whate'er events betide, Thy will they all perform, Safe in thy breast my head I hide, nor fear the coming storm." There are many storms in life and one of the lessons I think God would like for me to learn is to cast my cares upon Him. To remember that He is in ultimate control and because of that I am not to fear the storms that come my way. Prayer:  Lord God, I know not what storms will come today, but I do know you care for me. Help me to remember that you are in control and you will work things out for your glory and for my good. Amen.
