WEEKLY DEVOTION – Sept 20, 2021
You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You.
True prayers are born out of present trials and needs. Bread received today is the strongest pledge that there will be bread tomorrow. We must trust God today and leave tomorrow entirely with Him. The present is ours; the future belongs to God.
As every day demands its bread, so every day demands its prayer. No amount of praying done today will be sufficient for tomorrow’s praying.
Today’s manna is what we need; tomorrow God will see that our needs are supplied. This is the faith that God seeks to inspire. So leave tomorrow with its cares and troubles in God’s hands.
Dear God, please help me to trust You for today’s needs and to leave tomorrow entirely in Your hands. I know You will provide. Amen.
