Prayer Journal: Day 329

Day 329

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. – 2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV

God always gives us what we need,  but not necessarily what we want. What we want isn’t always what is best for us.

Because the Lord is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, He can see what is in our future.

He blesses us abundantly, more than we can ask or think. When life is not going according to plan, we can stop and ask God to show us what He has in mind for us. Amen.

Day 180

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but these things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law. – Deuteronomy 29:29 NKJV 

When we accept that the Lord knows more than we do, we can relinquish our desire to control what happens in our future. Not everything is up to us. God reveals things to us bit by bit, at the rate that we can handle. He doesn’t overwhelm us with too many changes all at once. He allows us to take things one at a time. 

There is no need to feel overwhelmed or stressed when He is directing us.

When we find ourselves wondering if everything will be okay, we can set our minds at ease because God is in control. Amen.

Day 179

In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. – 2 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV 

When we are going through big life changes, it’s easy to get into a mode of complaining about how much we wish things were to stay the same. 

God wants us to stop complaining and instead thank Him for all the blessings He has given us. If we stop and appreciate even the little things in our lives that are going right instead of harping on the details of what we perceive might be wrong, we can refocus our attention on thankfulness. 

When we adopt a thankful mindset, our world view starts to change. Instead of attracting more of what we don’t want into our lives, we focus on God’s will for us. Amen.

Day 83

So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good. – 1 Peter 4:19

Sometimes God’s will and our will don’t match up, but it is through prayer and studying the Scriptures that we can align ourselves with God’s will.

God isn’t there just to accomplish a laundry list of “to do’s” for us. He hears our prayers, but He also points us to do His will and do good works by deepening our relationship and trust in Him. He knows what is best for us, and even though we would like everything to stay the same, sometimes He shakes things up for us.

We can trust that He will bring good changes into our lives. Jobs may change. People may change, but the Lord always stays the same. He is here for us. Amen.

Day 74

To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. – Colossians 1:27

Despite all the uncertainty in the world right now, one thing is constant; Christ is in us and with us.

He watches over us wherever we go. The people we work for may change.  The place where we live may change. The people we see every week may not be the same, but God never changes. He is the same today, yesterday, and forever.

We can always count on Him. He gives us strength when we are weak. He revitalizes our energy when we are tired. He gives us hope when we are discouraged. He knows the big picture, and we do not, so it is important to look to Him for guidance every day.

Each day has its challenges, but He knows about them before we even open our eyes. He helps us and comforts us. We can trust that He will guide us to the way everlasting. Amen.

Day 73

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. – 2 Corinthians 5:17-18

Christ opens our minds to new possibilities. Nothing is impossible for God. Our old way of thinking doesn’t serve us. We can better serve others and operate in God’s purpose for our lives if we allow our minds to be transformed by His love.

Old stories and resentments can be let go. We don’t need them anymore. We learned what God wanted to teach us from those experiences and challenges and can move forward with the assurance that He knows what is best for us. New is good. We need to be open to it and welcome change. Amen.
