Reading for the Day: Philippians 4:19

“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”

Abraham was told to pack up his family and move to a faraway land he had never been to. Noah was told to build an ark when there was no water in sight. Esther was told to go and see the king when she was not summoned which meant almost certain death.

Each of these situations was unsettling at best to the person who was told to do them. The one leading them was God.

When others direct us to do things, we follow for many reasons, not the least of which is trust. But, they are made of flesh and bone just like us and can’t guarantee the outcome of any situation with 100% accuracy. On the other hand, when God asks us to do something, we ask for a thousand signs from Him.

If you haven’t read the stories of these three people above take a minute to do so. They each have a common thread – God provide what they needed to do what He asked. It can feel like we are alone when no one else goes with us, but God is always there. And, He won’t leave you without the help you need to achieve the task.

It works out that way every time. Now, remember, we didn’t say that it works out the way that “we” think it should but God will work things out for your good when He leads you forward into uncertainty.

Prayer Suggestions: God, I am scared to walk this path alone. But, if you say I must go, I will, knowing that you will be there to meet me.
