Philippians 4: 6-7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Father, thank you for everything that you’ve done, allowed and planned for our lives. May we know you are at work even when it does not go the way we desire. May we feel your love for us anyhow. May we stay in a place of a grateful and thankful heart each day. In Jesus name. Amen.
It is so easy to become disillusioned, distressed or worried about life happenings. The day to day moving of this world and what we see consumes our everyday existence. From work to the news, to the daily movement of all we do, say or think. However, God’s plan for our lives is bigger than a job and the elements of life that we must partake. Time and time again, life shows us that change is inevitable. The answers we desire for life problems may not come. However, the joy and peace of God is a promise we can count on. He is always there to lend a helping hand. He is always there to provide an answer to a prayer. He is always there to give comfort when needed. He is there to show the way. He is always there.
As He works, it can be difficult to believe that a change is coming. It can be difficult to have hope for something better. It can be difficult to see His love in a dead situation. It can be difficult.
However, His peace is possible. You see, He knows and has the outcome already done on our behalf. He created it to work out for our good. He knows the love He has for us all. The path He has chosen for us to walk. Run, leap and jump as we give Him praise with the life He give us to live. So let us rejoice in transcending understanding of who He is, the creator of all.
God, we thank you for the love you have of us. We thank you for the joy we can experience in you. May your love cover all that we do as our understanding of who you are continues to evolve. We thank you for another opportunity to see you at work in our lives. Thank you, Father, for continuing to go with us in all we do. In Jesus name. Amen.
