Word 4U Today



‘…Let him…rely upon his God.’ Isaiah 50:10 NKJV

Read this story:

One morning a man received four long-distance calls before he could even get out of bed.

Everybody had problems they wanted solved ‘right now’. He told his wife that he would skip breakfast, only to discover his car wouldn’t start.

So he called a taxi. When he got in the taxi he yelled, ‘Let’s go!’ The driver asked, ‘Where do you want me to take you?’ He shouted, ‘I don’t care, I’ve got problems everywhere!’

Do you feel like that today? 

Have you done all you can, but the situation hasn’t improved?

‘Who among you fears the Lord? Who obeys the voice of his Servant? Who walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely upon his God.’

Note the word ‘name.’ God values His good name because it represents His power, His character and His faithfulness.

So when you pray for anything in His name, you’re trusting His power, His character and His faithfulness.

It’s like standing on a rock! We spend so much of our lives worrying about yesterday and tomorrow, yet one is buried and the other’s unborn.

There’s not a thing we can do about either—they only steal today out of our hands!

The Psalmist said, ‘This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it’ (Psalms 118:24 NKJV).

So seize this day with its blessings and challenges and live every moment of it.

Don’t long for ‘someday’. ‘God is…a very present help…’

(Psalms 46:1 NKJV).

Just turn your worries over to God and let Him take care of them for you…today!

What now?

Pick a Psalm. Any Psalm. Whichever’s your favourite, or particularly relevant to you today. THEN, sing it to your own tune, as a mini worship session. Use the time to tune in to God’s language.
