Daily Devotion – Beautiful Word For Today May 1st
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” – Proverbs 3:5-6
Within times of trial and uncertainty it can sometimes feels as though you are drowned in problems with the weight of the world on your shoulders, however in all things we should rejoice in the Lord and depend on Him to uplift our hearts and make a way for us. What are you trusting the Lord for?
There may be specific things that you have asked the Lord for, things you may have kept in prayer for what seems like a long while, but it feels like it’s been forever. I still want to encourage you to trust in the Lord your God with all of your heart. Even if you don’t see anything happening, even if you don’t truly understand. For the bible says that we ought to walk by faith and not by sight.
Beautiful, God cares about the desires of your heart. He knows your needs, your wants and all of your circumstances. He is aware of every detail of your life and as your Father and Shepherd, He is able to take care of you.
Whenever you feel low or discouraged open up your heart to Him in honesty and tell Him how you are feeling, you’d be surprised how much better you feel afterwards. Let His word fill your mind and heart with His lovely overwhelming comfort. He has promised to never leave or forsake you!
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for being faithful and lavishing us with your glorious love. May we find comfort in your promises and rest in your embrace. May we find clarity and peace as we pursue your heart and be still in your presence. Help us to let go of our worries and cares, as we leave them at your feet.
