Daily Devotionals

May 11th, 2021

God’s Word speaks to each of us in different ways. Through particular verses God provides the impetus to change our direction in life for the long term, and sometimes God gives us just the right verses to impact specific seasons in our lives. Over the next few weeks, we thought we would share with you a few of our favorite verses. In a devotional series we’re calling A Few of Our Favorite Things, you’ll hear from some of our pastors and volunteers as they share how God’s Word has impacted them.

Read Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV

Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight.

I was eighteen years old when I accepted Jesus and ever since this has been my favorite verse. It has meant so much to me and the reason why is simple. Despite hardships or struggles that have come my way (and there have been many), this verse has helped me persevere because no matter what is happening it ALWAYS brings me back to knowing that God is in control! It reminds me that if I simply place my trust in my Father I have nothing to worry about and nothing to fear. It reminds me that I am His child and if I am faithful to follow His leading, He will be faithful to get me where I need to be and give me what I need for each day!
