14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. John 1:14–16
Heavenly Father, help us to hear Your Word. Help us come to You with open hearts to the Saviour, Jesus Christ, who leads us into Your loving arms. Hear our prayers and let Your face shine on us. Send a new age, a new salvation to the earth, to glorify of Your name. Show us that what we have learned about You is true and that we may live in that truth and find our way to heaven, to the glory of Your name. Father God, it may at times seem You are far away. But we know that our voices reach You and that your Holy Spirit will encourage us to be your workers for the Lord Jesus. Send your Spirit, Father. Send the Comforter, the Guiding light, who leads us into all truth. We trust ourselves and our daily lives to You. We want to be more faithful each day. Help us, Your children, to remember we belong to you, God. No matter how dark it is, help us remember that You are with us. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Trust. Trust. Trust.

With All Of Your Heart

sha`an – To trust, support, to support oneself
According to Strong’s Concordance, the Hebrew word for ‘lean’ is ‘sha`an’ (H8172) which means: “To trust in, support, to support oneself” Don’t depend upon your own way of thinking. Let God lead you. Let God lead your heart. Let God lead your hands. Let God direct your course. Choose to trust Him and let God light your path.
Psalm 27:1-2 declares, “1 The Lord is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid? 2 When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall”. The Lord is stronger than any obstacle that you may face. The Lord is stronger than your enemies. Choose to focus on Him. When darkness surrounds you, choose to let God lead your course. For He is stronger. God is mightier. No one can outrank Him. No one can outmaneuver Him. Surrender to Him and you shall not be moved.
The Lord’s strength
The Lord is stronger than any obstacle that you may face. The Lord is stronger than your enemies. Choose to focus on Him. When darkness surrounds you, choose to let God lead your course. For He is stronger. God is mightier. No one can outrank Him. No one can outmaneuver Him. Surrender to Him and you shall not be moved.
Set The Lord Before You
I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalm 16:8
Choose to set the Lord before you. Let His Word take priority in every area of your life. Let His Word lead and direct you. Let His Word enlarge your steps. Let His Word strengthen you. Choose to always set His Word before you. Let His Word filter through your heart. Let His Word flow from your lips. Let His Word direct you. Let His Word shield you and navigate you through the storm.
God sees and knows all
God saw the storm before it formed. Choose to surrender to the God who speaks to storms. Surrender to God. Psalm 63:1, “You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” Choose to seek God early in the situation. Choose to submit your flesh to Him — For in Him there is strength. “The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”Proverbs 18:10 . Run to Him. Run to Christ.
He is strong. He is powerful. Choose to set the Lord before you. He is a mighty strong tower and no storm can defeat Him. No matter the storm you face — He is more powerful than any mountain that you face. Choose to trust in the Lord — forever.
If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, or if you have fallen away from Him, simply say this prayer:
Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus, I repent of my sin and I turn to You. Father, I receive Your Son, Jesus Christ, as my Lord and Savior. I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose just for me. I believe that His Blood washes me and cleanses me from all unrighteousness. Father, in You, I am set free. Father, through the Blood of your Son, Jesus Christ my past is history and my future is bright. Father, In You, I am made new. Father, in You, I am complete. Father, in You, I am made whole. Father, in You, I am restored. Father, I surrender every area of my life to You now and forever. In Jesus Name. Amen.
