Many times when we hear the word journey, we imagine time spent along broad vistas with restful pastures. The word even sounds poetic.
But in reality, the journey of faith that God requires us to take through this life can lead up steep, emotional mountain grades; out across vast, lonely plains; and, without warning, down into dark valleys where we face some of our greatest challenges.
No request is too small for Him to hear, and no problem too great for Him to solve.
Through it all, however, we can have a tremendous sense of hope and determination because our faith is founded in an unshakable God who is not frustrated by the rise and fall of the world's economy. Nor is He alarmed by daily news reports or changed in any way by the shifting of governmental powers.
He is the same yesterday, today and forever (see Hebrews 13:8). He is faithful and true. We can be sure of this: God is just as concerned about your needs as He is about the nations of this world. No request is too small for Him to hear, and no problem too great for Him to solve.
When we are tempted to feel hopeless, He comes to us as our strong and mighty advocate, proclaiming His care and plan for our lives (see 1 John 2:1; Hebrews 13:5; Matthew 10:31).
Prayer: Father, this journey of faith has taken me through some challenging struggles. Thank You for the reminder today that You are faithful and that You care about my every need. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones" (Psalm 37:28).
