The scripture for today is Psalms 86:7
Psalms 86:7 In the day of my trouble I will call upon You, for You will answer me.
The declaration of the psalmist is a declaration of faith. It is faith in God and His promises that ensures victory in our lives. Those who seek Him daily are those who are overcomers. "But without faith, it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him." Hebrews 11:6
God heaps His grace upon those who trust Him and they experience the realization of His promises. As we become seekers of God, daily laying our lives before Him in prayer, asking for His ongoing presence and direction, He does His work in us. We become testimonies of His grace.
God does not answer our prayers because we have been good enough to merit His favor. He answers our prayers because He loves us, often in spite of ourselves. Whatever condition we may find ourselves in, God is still there. He is waiting for us to call out to Him; He stands ready to deliver us and give us His peace in our time of need. Make no mistake about it, God, who is all-powerful, loves us, and has already proven His love for us. Let us be faithful to Him and, when we confront a need or face trouble, let us not lean to our own understanding; let us call upon God. He knows all and according to His word, “You will answer me.” Believe it; stand on it; God will take care of you.
God bless you as you continue in His service.
