“And not only by his coming, but also by the comfort with which he was comforted in you, as he reported to us your longing, your mourning, your zeal for me; so that I rejoiced even more’ 92 Corinthians 7:7).
The Lord knows what is going on in our hearts. He knows the difficulties, struggles, doubts and fears. Those things which get in the way are often the very things He uses to grow in us what is needed. Come then and trust the One who created you. He knows all that you need and will not stop until you are conformed to the image of Christ and become as a child of the Most High.
Lord, help me to see the big picture that I would not just focus upon each step, but know that You are leading me with purpose. Through all that comes, guide me to focus upon all of Your promises, knowing that You are the only One who will cause things to come about as You declare. In You alone is all hope, so help my heart to know this simple truth as I struggle through each day.
Lord Jesus, You know what it is to be tempted. You know the pitfalls this age brings upon us. You have experienced these things and know what we need. Lead me this day in the truth of Your presence and purpose that I may be guided by You through all that will come. Turn my heart toward You that I may willingly participate in this salvation You bring through grace. Amen.
