So Judah gathered together to ask help from the LORD... 2 Chronicles 20:4, NKJV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Scripture says that we are to acknowledge God in all of our ways. One way to acknowledge God is to simply ask for His help. On the way to the grocery store, under your breath, God, help me to find what Im looking for. Help this to be a productive trip. Thats acknowledging God. Youre saying in effect, God, I need You right now. I want You in my life.
That simple acknowledgement is an act of faith. It opens the door for Him to direct your steps, even in the little things. God will help you find what you may not have found. He will put you at the right place at the right time. And sure, you can do this without Gods help. You can do it in your own strength. But when you learn to hear His voice in the little things, youll be confident to hear Him in the big things. When you acknowledge God, He breathes His favor on you. Youll come into an anointing of ease. What should have been a struggle wont be a struggle. Thats God crowning your efforts with success.
Today and every day, ask Him for help and let Him lead you and guide you in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I confess that I need You. I ask for Your help. I dont want to try to do it on my own. I know that Your ways are higher. Your ways are better. Lead me and guide me as I daily surrender to You in Jesus name. Amen.
