Today : Give This Day To God
“Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Rescue me from my enemies, O LORD, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.” Psalms 143:8,10 (NIV)
Do you start your day hearing a word from God about His unfailing love? Do you start your day trusting in Him? Do you ask Him for direction, protection and instruction for the tasks that are ahead of you this day? If not, why not start today? No matter what your yesterdays were, no matter what you fear for tomorrow, there is nothing stopping you from committing this day to God. You can begin a new habit of thanksgiving and expectation today.
Father, in the quietness of this moment, let me hear You confirm Your unfailing love for me. Right now, I put my complete trust in You. Show me the way I should go and rescue me from any trouble today., O LORD, I hide myself in You so please teach me to do Your will. Lead me by Your Spirit I pray. In Jesus’ name.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
I put my trust in God
Quiet yourself before God. Sense His majesty (pause), His power (pause), His wisdom (pause) and His love (pause). Come closer to Him and extend out your hand. In your hand is your trust. Give it to God. As you do tell God, “Show me the way”. “Teach me your will.” Lead me today.” Say it again slowly and as you do sense the Lord hearing you and answering your prayer. Finish by thanking God for His presence with you.
