“For even when we came into Macedonia our flesh had no rest, but we were afflicted on every side: conflicts without, fears within. But God, who comforts the depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus” (2 Corinthians 7:5-6)
In whom do you trust? Who will be the One to lead you where you need to go? The Lord God, Creator of all things knows what you need before you ask. He has made His plan and it is sure. This world will come against God’s faithful. But do not fear, for if the Lord is with you, nothing in all of creation will ever be able to separate you from the love God has given you in Christ.
Lord, this world does have its ups and downs. Teach me to live through what this world brings that I may now and always walk humbly with you. Guide me into this new life You give by grace that I would walk through every travail, tribulation, and fear knowing that You are with me. Let me comfort others with the comfort You have given me that we may grow in the likeness of Christ.
Lord Jesus, You are the comfort of the weary. You are the hope of the frightened. You are the One who knows all that is needed and have provided before we ask. Lead me this day in the way of salvation that I would see how You have rescued me from the pitfalls over which I passed by Your grace. In all things, help me to keep my eyes upon You, for I need You to lead me. Amen.
