In the midst of trials, will you persevere? In the midst of the uncertainty, will you be patient? In the midst of troubles, will you take heart? Will you build your life upon the solid rock, trusting in God?
Don’t give up! Don’t lose hope! Don’t lose faith! Trust God!
What promises of God are you taking hold of? What promises of God are you leaning in on? How are you living your life to show that You are seeking first the kingdom of God?

The 49-Week Challenge
With April in the rear view mirror, let’s share our takeaways from today’s reading! Did you catch and promises to trust? Did you catch any commands to obey? Did you catch any truths to embrace? Did you catch any warnings to heed? Did you catch any encouragement to rest in? What did you learn about God? What did you learn about yourself? What did you learn about the world? What verse stood out most to you today?
Today’s reading from God’s Word – the Bible comes to us from:
- Will you trust God’s promises?
- Will you trust God through the highs and the lows?
- Will you lean in on God when things are going well as well as when they get rough?
- Will you never stop leaning in on God and try to go it in your own power?
- Will you praise God for His promises?
- Will you praise God for His goodness?
- Will you take hold of the reasons and purposes for boundaries?
- Will you receive the gift(s) God gives you with a humble and thankful heart?
As day 142 of 2020 begins, I would hate to miss giving the opportunity to anyone who hasn’t received Jesus into their lives as their Lord and Savior an opportunity to make the decision this early into 2020 and the blessing to get to live out the rest of 2020 in that power and that truth and that hope.
If you would like to receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, why not join me in this prayer?
Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven. At this moment I trust Christ alone as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Father, I take you at your word. I thank you that I can face death now that you are my Savior. Thank you for the assurance that you will walk with me through the deep valley. Thank you for hearing this prayer. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.—The Sinner’s Prayer
