I am leading you, step by step, through your life. Hold My hand in trusting dependence, letting Me guide you through this day. Your future looks uncertain and feels flimsy- even precarious. That is how it should be. Secret things belong to the Lord, and future things are secret things. When you try to figure out the future, you are grasping at things that are Mine. This, like all forms of worry, is an act of rebellion: doubting My promises to care for you.
Whenever you find yourself worrying about the future, repent and return to Me. I will show you the next step forward, and the one after that, and the one after that. Relax and enjoy the journey in My Presence, trusting Me to open up the way before you as you go.
The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law. ~Deuteronomy 29:29
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My loving eye on you.
This is my devotion. I can’t even stretch it enough on how this touched me. I had to share it. You never know who is going through a situation and just a little word can help them out. This is the story of my life. I worry about my future. I find myself wondering about school. I’m a college student and for those who can relate know that college can be stressful. Sometimes, I feel like I’m not going anywhere. I feel like i’m in a box trying to find my way out. The Bible constantly tells us not to worry but sometimes I find myself worrying a lot. I can be too extreme. I often wonder if I would ever complete college and where would I be without focusing on the present. As I read this devotional, I just thought to myself, what would happen if i didn’t stress about school and just take it one day at a time? After all, we live one day at a time not even aware of what our day will hold. We rise up from bed by the Grace of God. We go into the world unsure of the people we will encounter and even the situations that will come our way. It was an on time reminder to leave everything There is no power in our hands but when we fully place our day in our Maker’s hand, great things fall in place. Committing your day into God’s hands is very important. Many times, we rush into our day without saying a word of prayer. Just like how a simple word can change a person’s life or even how our day will operate is the same in praying. Intercede for others. Pray until something happens. God bless you.
