Scripture Reading: Romans 8:35–39
Key Verse: Romans 8:37
In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Do you ever worry about whether you can trust God? Many deny it, but their actions speak differently. Have you ever prayed for something and felt as though your prayers were going unanswered? After a while, it is easy to think that maybe it would be okay to help God out—give Him a little shove to start things off. But you may want to consider the following:
God is sovereign. He is both personal and loving. He has not forgotten you. Even though you may have to wait for the answer to your prayers, when it comes, it will be a wondrous blessing because you were willing to wait and trust the Lord for the answer.
God is infinitely wise. All knowledge about all things belongs to Him. He knows everything. Deep love and commitment toward those who have accepted His Son as their Savior are hallmarks of His personal care. Therefore, He has provided a way for sin to be eradicated from your life. In wisdom and mercy, He desires for you to live free of the bondage of sin and failure.
God loves perfectly and completely. He can meet all your needs. You may wonder how this can be, especially since you can’t see or touch Him. Deep within the resources of His love, contentment and a sense of peace are waiting just for you. Nothing the world offers can duplicate these things.
Father God, You are sovereign and wise. You know everything about my life. You love me perfectly and completely and have the ability to meet all my needs. Thank You that You have not forgotten me!
