This morning I was feeling a little overwhelmed by a trial I’m facing. I began to dwell on some negative thoughts instead of focusing on the Lord.
In the midst of my pity-party, I stopped and prayed. In fact, I was pleading with God. I felt a little bit better after praying, but I still didn’t have an answer to my problem.
Not 10 minutes after my prayer time, the need that I was pouring out to the Lord was supplied unexpectedly. Needless to say, I was shocked! But I shouldn’t have been. My Saviour is able to meet every need I have. My job is to trust and submit to Him. I just started crying and praising the Lord for His goodness.
Of course, God isn’t good just because He answered my prayer almost immediately after I prayed it! He is good ALL THE TIME! Instead of looking at my circumstances, I need to look to Him for strength and encouragement.
My outlook today changed drastically after I spent time thanking the Lord for showing me how He loves me and cares about me.
I Chronicles 29:11 “Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all.”
