Prayer Journal: Day 315

Day 315

Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. – 2 Corinthians 3:52 NIV

When we forget things, we sometimes wonder if our memory is failing or if it is normal to walk into a room and forget what we were planning to get there until we walk back out and into the room again.

Competence comes from the Lord. He makes sure we don’t forget what counts. Sometimes we can be forgetful, but we can write things down that we need to remember.

When taking a test, we can rely on our God-given memory and study skills. The Lord is never forgetful.

He remembers who we are, and He can see who we will become. He has a plan for us, and He never makes mistakes. We can look to Him for direction. Amen.

Day 219

A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps. – Proverbs 16:9 KJV

We can make plans, but the Lord determines where we go.

My toddler has a barrel of energy, and sometimes he is too much for me to handle. I am considering putting him in daycare four hours a day so that I can rest and work. Currently, I work when he is napping, but some days he skips his nap entirely and other days I am too exhausted to work when he is sleeping. 

The Lord knows that we need rest and He provides a way so that everything can work out for us. We don’t have to worry because He already has things figured out for us. We can trust that He has the details worked out. Amen.

Day 157

What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? – Romans 8:31 NIV 

Jesus loves us more than life itself. He is on our side. He is for us.

When life seems uncertain, one thing is for sure: Jesus loves us and saved us. We can be grateful for His sacrifice. He is here to help us.

When we are tired, He is there. When we are sad, He is there. We are never alone. When we are afraid, He gives us courage. 

The Lord wants good things for those who love and trust Him. We don’t have to rely on couches, mentors, and marketers for wisdom, because wisdom comes ultimately from God. We can tune into His voice. Amen.

Day 149

Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; He is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. – Psalm 112:4 NKJV

In the middle of the night, there is darkness.

When we can’t sleep because we have too much on our minds, it can help to get up and read the Scriptures. God’s voice shines through the darkness. Whatever we are going through, His grace and mercy will shine upon us.

We have a compassionate God. He understands our pain and worries. He can direct our paths.

When it’s dark, we can’t see straight. His light shows us the way to go. He never leads us astray. 

We can trust that when the sun comes up, we’ll have enough light to see clearly. Amen.
