The Light Daily Devotional – Trusting God for Your Life
Focus: Trusting God for Your Life
WORD FOR TODAY
In prosperity, our friends know us, but in adversity and needs, we know our friends. The only antidote against disappointments in life is to trust and be in constant fellowship with God!
“When the men of Israel saw that they were in danger (for the people were distressed), then the people hid in caves, in thickets, in rocks, in holes, and in pits . . . As for Saul, he was still in Gilgal, and all the people followed him trembling. Then he waited seven days, according to the time set by Samuel. But Samuel did not come to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him.” (1 Samuel 13:6-8 NKJV).
The fact that the Lord created man for relationships is an important reason why you need men to achieve most things in life. However, you are not expected to put your entire life on what the eyes can see. This is because what the eye can see is temporal.
Don’t allow any temporal support to disconnect you from God who is the ever-present help in the time of trouble. Men by default will always turn back from you when it seems the going is getting tough with you.
People began to leave King Saul when they saw that things began to fall apart. These were the people who used to be close to him to enjoy the best of the Land. This situation put him under intense pressure which led him to sin.
Thank God for everything the Lord has done for you in your job, home, career etc. When these things are working well it breeds human resources. But when God is set to seek your attention; He sends them away by making you pass through life’s challenges to concentrate to know Him better and the real values of life.
+ Do you trust God for your life?
Prayer: Lord! Help me to trust you with my life in Jesus’ name! Amen!
Emphasis: A man who learnt how to be in fellowship with God irrespective of the physical support in their lives will never be disappointed.
Have a Blessed Week Ahead!
