DON’T TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT GOD ALREADY HAS!

Within us is the life of life, so that we can never perish.  This life keeps God’s children from peril, adversity, and sorrow.  We must try to never doubt or worry, but follow where the life of the spirit leads.  As the life of the spirit grows, natural wants become less important.  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6–7).

PRAYER FOR TODAY

We live in a box of space and time, which we have manufactured by our own minds, and on that depends all our so-called knowledge of the universe.  The simple fact is that we can never know all things, nor are we made to know them.  Much of our lives must be taken on faith.  “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,’ says the Lord, ‘for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts’” (Isa. 55:8–9).

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Who will you trust … you or Him?
