Wow! How about those Scriptures above in that Prayer!? And these are only the ones from the Prayer, not even looked at the beginning of the chapter! This comes at a perfect time in my personal life! As I read the “Trusting God for His Promises” I thought what a good Prayer to pray for my husband; but couldn’t help this morning to put “me”, “I”, “women” or “my”!
What a great chapter to help deal with worry, anxiety, and doubt! For myself I find I struggle more in this (in the moment) in different areas of my business, having lost several great employees in the last year, and then the waiting game of finding another. But Ladies GOD HAS ALWAYS PROVIDED EVERYTIME!!!!!! ALWAYS!
I am learning when my flesh rises in times of trouble, the Spirit is so FAITHFUL to TRY to calm my worries by reminding me “Have I ever not provided?” No LORD, You have always provided! Forgive me Lord! And that is when I can Pray for patience and TRUST in Him! Isaiah 55:8-9 has proved to be true over and over! “My thoughts” says the Lord, “are not like yours, “and my ways are different from yours. As high as the heavens are from the earth, so are my ways and thoughts above yours. His plan and the way He has brought them into my life has been beyond my thoughts and plans!
I stand in awe of HIM, although I am currently waiting on another PRAYER request, I am encouraged this morning that “His will and time is BEST!” So I wait upon the Lord and He WILL provide! 🙂
2 Samuel 22:31 This God- how perfect are His deeds, how dependable His Words! He is like a shield for all who seek His protection.
Psalm 32:10 The wicked will have to suffer, but those who trust in the Lord are protected by His constant love.
Isaiah 55:8-9 My thoughts” says the Lord, “are not like yours, “and my ways are different from yours. As high as the heavens are from the earth, so are my ways and thoughts above yours.
Proverbs 28:26 it is foolish to follow your own opinion. Be safe and follow the teachings of a wiser person.
Jeremiah 17:7 “But blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him.”
Again I say WOW, such encouraging Scriptures to come at such a perfect time! Ladies I don’t know what area of your life this lesson speaks loudest to you, but I would love to hear your thoughts! PRETTY PLEASE!
If you have the “Pink Book” that this study comes out of you know todays comes from the last 2 pages of the chapter so “Lord willing we just may pick up the first 3 tomorrow ;)!
Just my heart! Please share yours!
