A Daily Devotion for Thursday, November 17
Philippians 4: 6-7
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
The trust needed to take this step need not be mature and rock solid. But we need to trust enough to take the step and ask God for help. Peace invariably follows. In my experience, God is unfailingly generous with peace. The more I can turn away from counting on myself and turn toward God, the stronger my relationship with Him, and the stronger my trust.
Peace, like rain falls down
On those who choose to get wet.
They trust to ask God.
Father God, a haiku poem for you from me. Amen
