Trusting God with Your Future : Day 1 from Waiting with God - Giveaway


To celebrate the giveaway we're doing with the terrific people at Free Book Friday, each day this week I will be posting a devotional from Waiting with God to give you peek inside this inspiring devotional which was born from my own year of waiting with God.


 Day 1


But I am trusting you, O Lord,
saying “You are my God!”
My future is in Your hands.

~Psalm 31:14-15




Day 1


Trusting God With Your Future


Talk about a dive into the deep end. What a great way to start our devotional journey!
Do we trust God enough to not only say: “You are my God, my future is in Your hands!”
But to believe it and live it?
If you’re not quite ready to make this commitment to God today, let’s make it our goal to be there at the end of 31 days together.
If you’re like me and have tried to do everything on your own, the most difficult decision may be letting go and letting God.  What an enormous amount of trust it takes to say, “Okay God, I’ve tried to do it my way, but I’m ready to let go of the reins and turn my life over to You.”
My first reaction to that announcement has always been: But what if I don’t like the plans God has for my life?
Don’t worry. We’re going to tackle that question within these pages.
This conflict of asking for God’s help but not totally trusting His ability or willingness to answer, was what finally made me turn to the Bible in search of guidance and to many, many hours of prayer to seek God. In the end, I was able to say, “God, You’re in charge of my business, my finances, my life”.
In the past, I tried to do it all myself.  With mixed results.

Now, I declare that I am asking for God’s blessing on my future and trust in Him to work it out for the best.
Will you join me to trust God with your present and your future?
