God’s Embrace

If you’ve accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you can rely on God in all things. You are not alone in this world because you have a loving Father who cares deeply for you. When you place your faith in God, you are not only acknowledging His sovereignty over all things but also recognizing His unwavering love and faithfulness towards you.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.

– Jeremiah 17:7 ESV

As you reflect on your life, you probably see many times when God has shown up for you, even when you didn’t realize it at the time. No doubt He has brought you through difficult situations and has given you the strength to persevere. Perhaps you remember the times He guided you through trials or provided you with encouragement in some way when you were down. Even when you faltered and lost sight of Him, He was always faithful, patiently waiting for you to turn back to Him.

God makes a way for everything you will ever need.

You can believe He will make a way for everything you will ever need, from strength to face life’s challenges to comfort during times of sorrow. Jesus invites you to come to Him and to trust Him completely. In Matthew 11:28-30, He said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (ESV).

When you trust in God, you are blessed with peace, guidance, provision and His presence. These blessings are not based on our own efforts or achievements but are gifts from God, given to us as a result of our trust and faith in Him.

Today’s One Thing
