I know some of you moms are needing help in some specific ways today. Will you remember this promise? “For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” (Is 41:13) Sometimes the help God provides looks different from how we would provide it to others or ourselves and we often pray that God would solve our problems according to our desires. How many times have we asked God to work His power into what we feel is best and how we want things to go? Guilty!
If you pray today, will you ask God to give you the help that He deems best according to HIS plans for you? Can you trust that He DOES have a plan for the outcome, even if you are in the midst of waiting and can’t see how the questions will become answered? “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” (Jer 29:11)
In the meantime, as you wait, you can trust that God is at work in both you and your situation, accomplishing His very best. The result may end up having more to do more with your character and what He is shaping IN you, rather than how He is shaping your circumstance. My prayer for you today is that you will seek, depend and trust–a lot can happen in those meantimes! “Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.” Is 12:2
