Many of us spend far too much time trying to figure out how we can get blessings for ourselves. People sometimes spend their entire lives trying to accomplish what they think is important, never trusting God or letting Him lead them. In the end, this leaves them depressed and unfulfilled.
Psalm 37:3 says, “Trust, in the Lord and do good, .” God didn’t create us to worry about helping ourselves all the time. He wants us to sow good seed by reaching out to help others. And doing good brings great satisfaction because it feels great to make a difference. It also opens the door for God to bless you in a greater way.
You need to trust God to bring the right blessings into your life. While you’re waiting for His perfect timing, get busy helping others. You’ll actually feel relieved when you aren’t thinking about yourself all the time.
Trust God and get busy doing the good things you know to do. He’ll faithfully bless you and meet your needs.
Prayer Starter: God, I don’t want to live a selfish, self-centered life. I trust You to bring the right blessings into my life while I’m busy doing good for everyone You’ve placed in my life.
You Are Never Alone
Grief and loneliness are major problems facing people today. The two often go together because many Christians and unbelievers grieve over being lonely. In my ministry, an increasing number of people request prayer for loneliness.
God’s Word tells us plainly that we are not alone. He wants to deliver, comfort and heal us. But when you encounter painful losses in your life, you can lose sight of this simple truth.
Satan wants you to believe you are alone. He wants you to believe that no one understands how you feel, but his claims are false. In addition to God being with you, many believers understand what you are experiencing mentally and emotionally.
You are not alone now nor will you ever be, no matter what confronts you.
You may not understand much when you are hurting and the pain of loss is ripping through your soul, but know and hold on to this one truth: God loves you, and He has a future for you. Hope in Him and trust Him to turn your mourning into joy (see Isaiah 61:1-3).
Prayer Starter: God, I can’t always see through my grief and loneliness, but I know that You never leave me. Help me to remember that You are near, and guide me to other believers who I can join with to fight off the enemy’s attacks.
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
