The Lord has blessed each of us to see another day. We do not know what this day holds, we do not know what we will have to face this day, but what we do know is that it was only because of God’s grace and mercy that we were able to see another day. It is not of anything that we have done, either good or bad to have been able to see this day, it is only because of the great mercy of God that we are here today.
Since we do not know what this day holds, it is imperative that we trust God throughout this day, and know that no matter what it is that we are facing God is there to help us. The Scripture reminds us that, our help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. I encourage you today to remember that whatever you face this day or this week, to know that your help comes from The Lord.
You do not need to look to people or things for help, all you have to do is go to The Lord and He will be there to help you. When trials rise in your life, remember that your help comes from The Lord, and since your help comes from The Lord there is no need to worry about what you are facing. There are going to be moments when you will need to steal away and get into The Lord’s presence to remind yourself that He is with you.
The Lord will be there with you through all that you may face, and although there may be times when it does not feel like it, remember that The Lord is there. As I go throughout this week I will remind myself often that all of the help that I need is found in The Lord.
Since I am confident that all of my help comes from The Lord I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord thank you for being all of the help that I will ever need, and when things are not going the way I thought they would go, remind me that you are right there with me. In Jesus name Amen.
