John 5:24 HCSB
Thank You Father for always loving and guiding me, for being here for me, never letting me down, and for the countless blessings. My life is possible only through and by You. May I continue to walk on the path You have set before me, never straying from or delaying my journey. In Jesus’ name I pray to You, as Your child, follower, and servant. Amen.
It’s not just good enough to believe in the reality of God’s presence in our lives. Do you believe that God is the beginning, middle, and end? Do you believe that all problems have His solutions tied to them? Do you believe in His ability to heal, resurrect, make whole, and reveal all things at any given time? Do you believe that He hears your prayers and never leaves your questions or requests unanswered?
It’s not just in the good times that we should praise Him, but in the bad—at the beginning and middle of a storm, as it’s ramping up its strength—where does your faith lie?
The eviction, lost job, repossession, broken down car, illness, injury, burglary or robbery—what is your first thought and whom do you first call upon?
What and who do you truly believe in? Is it God? Only you and Him really know.
