Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
How encouraging to know we serve a God who hears our prayers. Through His love and mercy God promises that when we call on Him and pray to Him, He will listen. Whatever the answer may be, we can be assured that God hears our prayers and know that He will answer them in his own time and way.
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
The only way to know God is to seek Him with all of your heart. Spend time with Him in prayer, read the Holy Bible, really make an effort to understand who He is. The more you seek God in faith, the more you will come to know Him, the more you know Him, the more you will trust Him. When you experience God’s love, grace and mercy for yourself, you will come to completely trust in Him and realize that He will never abandon you.
Every child is a blessing and a gift from God, unique and special in their own way. It is up to us to guide and protect them and to teach them the ways of the Lord. Inspire and encourage your children by being an example of what it is to be a child of God. Pray for your children and ask God to bless them and don’t forget to thank the Lord for this special blessing.
To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.
We have so much to be thankful for. Even if our lives are not perfect, even if we have troubles, we still have so much to be thankful for. No matter what is going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for. God is good, take time right now to thank him for all the good in your life.
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
We are called to be like Christ – gentle, caring, loving and compassionate. Everywhere you look there are people that need help, especially right now with all these natural disasters happening. People are hurting and need help, it’s up to us as Christians to find a way to do what we can to help them.
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
God wants you to get away from all the noise and distractions around you to spend some quiet time with him in prayer. It’s not always easy to find time or a quiet place but if you make an effort to be alone with God in prayer it will be worth it.
And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
God will see you through hardships and he will provide for your needs if you trust him with all of your heart. It may not be in a way you were expecting but he will provide enough to meet your needs. At times God uses others to bless you and at other times he may ask you to help someone else in need.
