Today’s Devotional is offered by Kyle Yarbrough
Life is a wild, strenuous, and sometimes unforgiving journey. It pulls you in one direction, then another, and sometimes it just stops leaving us wondering what is next. Sometimes it leaves you wanting more and sometimes you can’t take it anymore.
When this happens, remember that God will never give you more than He knows you can handle. This does not mean that He will not challenge you. The challenge may be a way of preparing you for the next path on your journey. When you begin thinking why is this happening or what is the reason remember Jeremiah 29:11
“’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’”
and Psalm 31:24
‘Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.’
This hope will give you confidence that God will fulfill his promises. Promises that began during the Christmas season with the birth of Jesus are personified in John 14:6 when Jesus says “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”, and are fulfilled when Jesus died on the cross and arose from the grave to end sinful death for those who believe.
Remember that these promises are alive and fulfilled for all times which will fill you with the hope that God will take care of you!
