Good morning! “I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ. In the same way, “Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith.” The real children of Abraham, then, are those who put their faith in God.” Galatians 3:5-7NLT.
It is easy to say I am a Christian “because I believe the message I heard about Christ”. But, why is it so hard to put our faith in God in everyday situations. Why do we allow situations to spin us out of control, when the God who is all-powerful, who spins the entire universe is waiting for us to allow him to take control of our circumstances.
Where are you putting your faith?_____
Today, will you turn whatever it is…over to God and watch him work?
Lord, thank you, for while we were dead in our sin(s), you saw fit to send your son to save us. You made provision for everyone (not only a select group) to be called children of God. When we look back over our lives and in scripture it is hard to deny your presence. Lord, your Holy Spirit and miracles surround us each day. Lord, you prove your power and might to us and at times we still turn away from you. Lord, help us to stay attuned to your word, help us to hear your voice, guide and soften our hearts to walk in obedience. Lord, continue to be with us as we put our faith in you alone. Lord, heal the sick. Lord, be with the poor in spirit. Lord, touch the broken-hearted. Lord, be with those who are suffering silently in pain. Lord, your word says by your stripes we are healed, the touch of your garment made a person whole, your words say we are forgiven, your word says to come to you and you will give us rest. Lord, we believe your word, heal us, restore us to you and make us whole. We believe you are Lord and Savior of our lives, help us to put you first in all things. In Jesus name, Amen.
Keep seeking God’s truth! Keep trusting God’s word! Keep praying!
