Trust Him to give you what you need, when you need it. If you find yourself doubting, reminisce about how He’s been faithful to you in the past, present and trust God to provide in the future!
Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Matthew 6:8 Continue reading
This was written to the people of the old covenant, however there is great simplicity and wisdom in the statement here.
The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways. Deuteronomy 28:9
Let us attempt, not only out of obedience, but out of desire, to be intentional about keeping His commandments and walking in God’s ways. (thedailyverse.com/Kat Davis)
As Jesus is telling Peter the manner in which he will die Peter looks over to John and asks what will happen to him. How often do we want to compare our path with Christ to others?
Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.” – John 21:20-22
Jesus tell us to not do this. Each of are challenged to follow Him. To ultimately trust in the Great Shepherd is to listen to His voice and follow Him. As the hymn says, “Though none go with me, still I will follow; No turning back, no turning back.” This is the path of Christ follower. Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Our infirmities can become comfort zones and though we’d love to be set free from them, they’ve actually become a place of habit and refuge for us.
One man was there who had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been there a long time, he said to him, Do you want to be healed? John 5:5,6
Take note that Jesus first asked the invalid if he wanted to be healed before delivering the miracle of healing. Let us use His example when considering our own shortcomings and consider if we want to be healed where we fall short – whether that be literally as in this case, or figuratively such as wanting to have chains that have bound us for our whole lives finally cut loose (thedailyverse.com/Kat Davis)
