Good Morning Ladies (and few gents),
A Thought for the Day: “God’s got 2020 in His hands…I don’t know of any other place I’d rather be. And in that you can place your trust.” extracted from He’s Got 2020 In His Hands by Sharon Jaynes.
GiG, on days when life is difficult and we feel overwhelmed, as some of us do fairly often, it helps to remember in our prayers that all God requires of us is to trust Him and be His friend. I find I can do that, and I believe you can too.
Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. Psalm 4:1 NIV
The Lord has heard my cry for mercy, the LORD accepts my prayer. Psalm 6:9 NIV
GiG, maybe you have a confidant who truly cares about you and understands you—and has the power to help you—you probably don’t hesitate to call her (or him). But don’t get it twisted; God is all of this and more. Our relationship with Jesus should go deeper than any human relationship.
We can turn to God in our time of desperate need, and He hears us. He may not answer in the exact way or time frame we desire, but if we ask in faith, He will answer. Mind you, we have to persevere in prayer at times. However, we shouldn’t just pray when we face emergency. However, we should talk to God constantly. We should come into His presence by worshipping Him, present our petitions, and then wait, trusting Him to answer.
May we be encouraged to instead of wasting our time worrying about problems, we should pray about them. God has the power to change our circumstances.
