Hope for the Journey: Recently I misplaced an item that I really needed. I couldn’t remember where I last placed it. I knew that I took it with me on a weekend trip, but had not idea where it was when I got home. I unpacked everything and put everything away and still couldn’t find it. About the time I was getting panicky about finding it the following verse came to mind. “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Heb. 4:16 Immediately I asked God to help me and seconds later I knew exactly where to look for the item. I immediately went and looked and there it was!
Over and over in my life, I have had situations where I didn’t have the ability or resources to solve the problem. When I have gone boldly to God asking for help He has provided solutions over and over. Whether the need was for finances to pay a bill, health for myself or a loved one, peace in a trying situation, or doors that I need opened God has always come through.
If you have a need today that you can’t meet on your own, may I humbly suggest that you give God a try.
If you need prayer for a situation in your life we will be glad to add you to our daily prayer list. Just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and your need will be added to our daily prayer list.
May God richly bless you in all you do.
