Daily devotional: Trust in the Lord

Scripture
He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. It is not by strength that one prevails...
1 Samuel 2:9 NIV

Observation
God is so gracious to us, rewarding those who earnestly seek Him. I am comforted and empowered to know that my Lord is guarding my feet, protecting me. And when I see the challenges before me, I am reassured that I don't have to rely on my strength. God is good!

Application
Trust fully in the Lord God. Remember where my strength comes from and rely on His strength. Turn every thing over to Him and trust Him to make my paths straight.

Prayer
Lord, I give over to You my burdens, my cares, and my plans. I humbly give over any semblance of self-strength and instead trust in Your ways and Your strength instead. Thank you for protecting me and providing abundantly as You always do. Your thoughts are higher than my thoughts, and Your ways so much higher than my ways. I trust in You!
