Daily Devotional: September 16th
IN GOD WE TRUST
And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Jesus Christ. Philippians 4:19
All of us experience adversity, disappointments and hardship. Sometimes we bring these hardships upon ourselves, and sometimes we are victimized by circumstances that we cannot fully understand. As human beings with limited insight, we can never completely comprehend the will of our Father in Heaven. But as believers in a benevolent God, we must always trust His providence. When Jesus went to the Mount of Olives, as described in Luke 22, He poured out His heart of God. Jesus knew of the agony that He was destined to endure, but He also knew that God's will must be done. We, like our Savior, face trials that bring fear and trembling to the very depths of our souls, but like Christ, we too must seek God's will, not our own. Have you been touched by a personal tragedy that you cannot understand? If so, it's time to accept the unchangeable past.. and it's time to trust God completely. When you do, you'll reclaim the peace--His peace--that can all be yours.
Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty. Proverbs 21:5.
Trust in God. He has us. Have a great day. Thank God and thank you.
