Morning Prayer, Wednesday, August 5, 2020 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: WE NEED GOD
Father God, today and everyday, I need You. Amen
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths." Proverbs 3;5-6
“I need God all the time. I need Him every second, every minute, every hour, every day.” As I sit listening to news and people talk about the state of our country, I realize just how powerless we are to change much of anything. God wakes me up each morning and ahead of me He has planned a masterfully wonderful day but how much of it am I in control of? The whole thing is in God's hands. The sooner I get that as I make plans to go here and do that, the smoother the day will be for me. Yes, these days ring with uncertainty. We need to see that and trust that if we stick close to God, hold onto His unchanging hand, we can make it through anything. One of my favorite Scriptures is "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Strengthens me to do what? Well, God strengthens me to rise up each morning, go about my day and do the things I need without needing someone to prop me up. If you have ever broken a limb or just been incapacitated in any way, you can understand the helpless feeling of not being able to move under your own strength. We need God. True, it may not seem like it sometimes, but we need God. Not just in the morning to wake us up. Not when we are desperately in need of answers. We need Him all day, every day. We need Him to be our eyes and ears. We need Him to help us navigate in a world that is uncertain and sometimes frightening. If we can get that, we get God.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
