Good morning, beloved of the Lord,
"O my soul, wait only on God, for my hope is from him. Trust in him, O people, at all times; Pour out your heart to him; God is our refuge."
Sl 62: 5.8
-Here is an exhortation from the psalmist David, warning us to trust in God alone.-
Father, we want to start this day by pleading for your intervention in our lives; give us discernment, prudence and wisdom. In our eyes our trials seem impossible to overcome, but with You anything is possible.
Look at the immutable Rock from which flows the living water that refreshes and satisfies our spirit. Be silent and see the greatness of the mighty God; of the Lord of Hosts who is always ahead opening paths, breaking down walls, and battling our enemies. Say to your own soul: Be silent! Do not worry yourself within me, that you may see how great, how Mighty the Lord is.
"The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still." Exodus 14:14
Dear sister, be still! Release the reins you're still holding on to and see for yourself what Jesus will do. In times of trouble we will have tranquility, because we trust the One who is directing our steps and renewing our strength. Put Him first in you life by daily seeking Him. It's a daily thing.
In the morning when we rise, let's say to the King:
Lord, I give you my life, I trust in you. I pour our my heart in your presence. Change me, use me, guide me into becoming all you created me to be, hide me under the shadow of your wings, and keep me there forever.
These reflections are written by my mom, then translated and edited by me. But, sometimes, God changes the whole thing. 😊
Thank you mom, for being such a dedicated servant of Christ, and for the example of faith you show us each and every day.
