Today’s Nourishment: These eight psalms extol the mighty power of God and His loving kindness toward those who serve Him, who believe on Him, and who follow Him, and are obedient to Him.
God is THE God of impossibilities, who can make a way for you when you can’t seem to find a way out of, over, or through your situation. You look at your circumstances and scream, “No way!” but Jesus firmly responds, “I AM the Way” (John 14:6).
We don’t deserve it, we can’t earn it, and we can’t do it all for ourselves, but God brings the victory and the necessary provision to those who will seek Him, follow and obey Him.
Join the psalmists in praising Him for what He is doing on your behalf. “Enter the gates of the righteous” (Psalm 118:19), into God’s presence, through thanksgiving and praise for Who He is, all He is, and what He has already done.
What is it that you need a victory over today? Be specific.
Please pray with me: “Father God you are most deserving and we are least deserving. Forgive us of any doubt or unbelief, any fear or misgivings, and any and all wrongdoing on our part. We trust you to make a way in our wilderness, through our issues and circumstance.
You are the Way Maker and we trust in you to take us through this by your wisdom and in your perfect timing. We give it ALL to you and humble ourselves for your honor and glory because you alone are worthy! In the precious name of Jesus we pray this, Amen.”
Do your part: Now, release the situation to Him and let Him work it out. You don’t have to carry the burden any longer. Jesus said, “Come to me ALL you who labor and are heavy-laden and I will give you rest (I will ease and refresh your souls)” (Matthew 11:28). Let Jesus carry your load. Now, you do your part by believing in Him, trusting Him to carry it for you, and thanking Him continuously as you walk through with His direction.
Share your praise of He Works it Out with us.
