WHERE DO WE PLACE OUR CONFIDENCE?

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, but we boast in the name of the Lord our God. Those nations will fall down and collapse, but we will rise up and stand firm.

Psalms 20:7-8 NLT

 

TODAY’S THOUGHT

This morning as I was preparing to read my devotion and start my day, I was thinking of some the situations I have recently worked with. They involved church leaders who became proud of their accomplishments and felt they didn’t need anyone to tell them anything. They rejected any Godly counsel and chose to forge out on their own. They were confident in their own wisdom, talent, and ability. I have been around long enough to see what happens to those who put their confidence in the wrong place. David reminds us of the problem with putting our trust in the wrong place. We can trust in our wisdom, talent, ability, resources, and network of friends. We begin to think we are invincible. Nothing will ever harm us because we have arrived. That spirit of pride is a set-up for destruction. David tells us that we should place our confidence in the Lord our God. Our strength is in our relationship with Almighty God. Anything good that comes out of our lives is because of God’s grace and mercy on our lives. It is God Who gives us wisdom, talent, ability, resources, and friends. It is God Who opens doors for us to succeed. We should always be quick to give thanks to God for anything good that comes out of our lives. I believe it is crucial to develop an attitude of gratitude. Daily we need to give God thanks for the victories He has done in and through us. I think of Daniel in the Old Testament. He was a refugee living in a foreign land. Because he stayed true to God he was exalted to a place of high honor. The only thing people could find wrong with Daniel was that he prayed three times a day. Wow, that was his only flaw in their eyes. It was those times of prayer each day that kept Daniel humble before God. This humility is what allowed God to trust Daniel with great success. Daniel was quick to give the credit to God. When we practice humility and give God the credit there is no limit to what God can do in us and through us.

 

TODAY’S PRAYER

Holy Spirit help me to always give You the credit for anything good that comes out of my life. Help me to lean into Your wisdom and direction. Help me partner with You to be the best I can be.

I haven’t been feeling myself lately frequen hospital visits , my health not at 100 percent. Blood pressure high , mild depression with serious anxiety . It’s been a rough couple of weeks for me. However , I am very aware there is no problem to small for this our BIG GOD. Yesterday was the first day that was okay for me . I reminded myself to thank God always ( I normally do ) because all is just a blessing for us. I know deep down in my heart what God cannot do , doesn’t exist . I know and believe I will be healed and better soon in Jesus‘ name Amen !

Every part of my life comes from You. Thank you, Lord for Your provision, guidance, and blessings. I am so undeserving
