Today’s devotion is based on 2 Timothy 1:7, “God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
There are times when feelings get the better of us. Circumstances fluctuate. Even though we know in our head that God is fully capable of meeting our needs, we react faithlessly to what is happening. Our desire to be in control is challenged, but perhaps it is in these times the bigger picture comes into focus. God loves us and has a strong desire to live in a constant relationship with us. Why not hand our emotions to the one who knows us most and loves us best, and rest in him? He can and will meet all our needs.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, you know us more completely than we know ourselves. Help us to remember this and rest in your arms of love. You are our faithful provider. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
