Heavenly Father, so gracious and good you are! Today, we acknowledge you in the midst of our circumstances, our trials and our wanderings. So often we long for rest yet we find ourselves caught in a circle of endless striving. This is not your way, Lord. For you have called us to rest in your will. You have called us to trust in you with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding.
Father, when we don’t understand and the future is unknown, please give us strength to cease our striving and thinking on what we cannot control. Instead, may we say with confidence, “Lord, I trust YOU.” Starting today may we become people who find rest while waiting for your will rather than being people whose lives are characterized with striving, fretting and worry.
In Jesus Name,
