Daily Devotional – 2/27/19 – Trust God!

It’s been a while since I’ve penned a devotional and I’ve missed you all. I pray every one of you, reading this, is happy, healthy and whole. I pray that, since our last time together, you have been blessed beyond man’s measure, healed, delivered and set free. If by chance, life has thrown you a curve ball, death did what death does and left you grieving, sickness showed up and left you sad or all hell has broken loose … I am praying your faith does not fail. As for me, I’ve been good. Sure, I could list my complaints but they are meaningless. Instead, I’ll tell you that I took a week from social media as a time of consecration to God and it was the best thing I could have done. I plan to do this, more often. I started back at the gym, at 6:30 in the morning and baby, it has been a struggle yet I feel good. See, I’ve realized that although I’m cute in the face, I’m unhealthy in the waist and getting healthy spiritually means nothing if I’m still unhealthy naturally. This is my truth. Oh, I did finish another book, that released yesterday, while working on a few other things God will not allow me to slack on. I’m still carrying the mantle and preaching God’s word and still encouraged to go on.

And while this devotional really isn’t structured with one topic in mind, I simply stopped by to encourage somebody to keep going. Is it hard? Heck yes! Is it easier to give up? Heck, heck yes! But keep going. Let me share with you the verse of the day, I receive from this bible app I use. It says in Psalm 33:4, “For the word of the Lord holds true and we can trust everything He does.” Beloved, I don’t know what you’re going through or getting ready to face but you can trust God because His word holds true. What word? The promise He made to go before you and to never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:8). The promise He made to forgive you when you forgive others (Matthew 6:14). The promise He made to give you what you ask in prayer when you believe (Mark 11:24). It may not look like it but God’s word is true. It may not feel like God’s word is true, concerning you. You simply need faith. Faith that will allow you to tell the thing(s) that’s trying to defeat you to crumble and be no more and it will. Faith that will give you the power to speak healing, over yourself, and it manifests. Faith will let you keep going even when there is no more road or fight left. Trust God, with all of you and every part of your life because His word holds true, every time! Will you trust God?
