Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 2.4.14

Below you will find some inspiring words from Joel and Victoria Osteen, that made me think of this passage (shared before in this blog):
 
 “Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.”
 
 Philippians 4:6 HCSB
 
 What we go through each day, the trials and tribulations are only a surprise, a shocker, a blind-sided moment for us—but not for God. Read what Joel and Victoria had to say below, and then share your comments and thoughts with me and the other #BreakingBread readers!
 
 Love always,
 Natasha

 It’s No Surprise to God
 
 TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
 “But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph…”
 
 2 Corinthians 2:14, AMP
 
 TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
 In life, we all have to deal with the unexpected. Just because we’re believers, just because we’re good people or doing the right thing doesn’t make us exempt from trouble. The scripture says, “The rain falls on the just and the unjust.” In times when something unexpected happens, or you find yourself facing a crisis, you don’t have to go into “panic mode” or fall apart emotionally. Remember, that crisis is no surprise to God. It may be unexpected to you, but God knows the end from the beginning. He has solutions to problems that you haven’t even had. He has equipped you for every battle, and He goes before you making your crooked places straight.
 
 Today, focus on the fact that He is with you. Remember that He is walking with you and guiding you to a place of peace and victory. No matter what has happened, He will take what the enemy meant for evil and turn it around for your good! He always leads us in victory. So keep moving forward, trusting in the good plan He has for you!
 
 
 A PRAYER FOR TODAY
 Heavenly Father, I come to You with an open and humble heart. I thank You for the victory that You have in store for me even when I can’t see it. I choose to trust You and Your goodness knowing that You are faithful in Jesus’ name. Amen.
