We are all guilty of relying on our own instincts and thoughts and God given abilities. All too often, we don't look up and ask God to guide us until we realize we can't do it alone. Why do we do this over and over again. We should always be putting all of our hopes and desires and faith in God at all times. This simple step will give us a constant flow of courage and strength when we need it. It will always be there, we no longer have to worry or be scared of the circumstances before us. Our hope here and eternally is with God. Through Jesus Christ, we can do all things. But you have to always have Christ to accomplish those things. Don't use God as a buffet, only going up for a taste when you feel like it, God should be our main manna for all meals and all snack, each and every day.
all you who put your hope in the lord!
O - To me this scripture is directed at those of us that have put our faith and hope in our God. Because of that, we do not have to worry, we can stand strong and courageous in all things. We are being given the very steps it takes to not have to worry about things.
A - I know that I don't have to have worries, I know I can stand strong, I have put my full faith and all my hope in our Lord and Savior. I am still working on not depending on myself but I am getting so much better at giving everything up to God. Because of this, He has made me so much stronger. I will continue to look to God in all things and gain my strength from Him.
P - Father, I thank you for always being my strength in all things. I thank you for rewarding my hope in you and allowing me to not have to worry. Through you I have courage beyond compare. I pray that I continue on this path at all times and am able to share with others how You work in my life. In Jesus' name, Amen.
