Give It to God

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 62:5           

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.   

There may be times when all your efforts lead to disappointment, your plans don’t work out, temptation may seem too great or your current situation seems hopeless. Don’t lose hope, turn to God, leave it all in His sovereign hands. Wait patiently on the Lord and on His promises. Find rest in the Lord, for when you put your problems in God’s hands, He puts peace in your heart.

Lord, forgive me for the times I want something so bad I try to make it happen on my own and end up disappointed when it doesn’t work out the way I wanted. Thank you for the peace You give me when I leave it all in Your hands and wait patiently for Your will to be done, not mine. I trust in You, Lord, my hope is in You and in You my soul finds rest. Amen

Worry or Worship

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:6     

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.   

Whatever it is that worries you whether it’s spiritual, physical, for yourself or for someone else bring it to God in prayer. Humbly come before your heavenly Father with a sincere heart and lay your burdens, your worries and your cares at his feet. Thank Him for what He’s done for you in the past, thank Him for hearing your prayer in the present and thank Him in advance for answering your prayer in the future. Come to Him with an honest heart, tell Him how you feel and what you need. He already knows, but He wants to hear it from you. The choice is yours, you can worry or you can worship but you can’t do both.

Lord, I praise Your wonderful name! You are mighty, wonderful and the source of everything good. Father, I lay my worries at Your feet because I know that You are in control. I may not understand everything that is happening but I trust in You and pray for Your will to be done. Grant me peace, Lord, as I keep my mind on You and not on my troubles. Amen

Christ Strengthens Us

Verse of the Day:   Philippians 4:13  

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.        

Christ strengthens us in everything we do and His power is not limited to spirituality. With Jesus on our side we can bear any trial or adversity and we can be content in in all situations. He also strengthens us in whatever areas of our life we are weak or struggling, including physical, emotional and financial battles. Changing our old ways and habits can be hard when we try to do it by our own strength and often we fail. The good news is we don’t have to do it all alone or by our own strength.  We have Jesus on our side and we “can” do all things through Christ who strengthens us. By faith Jesus lives in us and that means we have His strength in us. Give whatever you are struggling with or stressed about over to Jesus and let Him be your strength and your guide.

Give the Impossible to God

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 84:12

Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

As women of God, we do our best to take care of our families to the best of our ability and we do as much as humanly possible. There are some things that are out of our control and for us, they are impossible. Those are the things we need to give to God. Through prayer, supplication and faith put your trust in the Lord Almighty who deals in making the impossible, possible. Do the possible and trust God for the impossible.

Let Go, Let God

Psalm 46 10

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 46:10

Be still, and know that I am God

Often, we are tempted to try and work everything out for ourselves but what we really need to do is to just let go and give it all to God.  When you are struggling to make things work out the way you want them to just stop, be still, wait patiently without fear, abide in His Word and let God’s will be done. Acknowledge that He is God and He is in control. He knows you, He knows your troubles and He will make all things work for the good of those who love Him. (Romans 8:28) Surrender your need to control the situation and let God be in charge of your life, His ways are always better and He is always faithful to His Word and His promises.

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 84:12

Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

 

As wives, mothers and grandmothers we do our best to take care of our families to the best of our abilities and we do as much as is humanly possible.  There are some things that are out of our control and for us, they are impossible. Those are the things we need to give to God.  Through prayer, supplication and faith put your trust in the Lord Almighty who deals in making the impossible, possible.  Do the possible and trust God for the impossible.

Don’t Give Up, Give It All to God

1 11-9 1

 

Verse of the Day:   Acts 20:19

I served the Lord with great humility and with tears and in the midst of severe testing (by the plots of my Jewish opponents).

 

There are times when we will go through something so difficult we cannot see the light of day through our tears and our faith is being severely tested. You might even feel like giving up on God but that’s when you need Him most.  Prayer is the most powerful weapon you have.  Cry out to God, He hears you and He loves you. Don’t give up instead give it all to God.

A Change of Heart and Spirit

1 11-3 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:   Psalm 51:10

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

 

Even David, a man after God’s heart sinned against God, but he recognized that he needed a profound change of heart and spirit and he knew he could not make this change on his own. No matter how much you try to change on your own it’s not going to happen until you give it to God.  He is the creator of your heart and the only one who can renew your soul and spirit.
