Moses said to Joshua, ‘Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff (rod) of God in my hands.’
- Wherever we go and whatever we do, we must make sure that the Lord is with us. - We must not do things in our own strength or in our own wisdom. - The ‘rod of God’ was a symbol that the Lord was with them. - Now, as you face the day, take hold of His hand, and He will give you the victory.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, because You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. Amen.
Daily Bible Verse: Isaiah 43:19

God's Ways Are Different
April 22, 2019
DON’T BE IMPATIENT
Human nature gets so impatient. We want everything immediately and in the form that we expect it to be. Don’t get discouraged. Don’t give up on God.
Psalm 27:14 Don’t be impatient. Wait for the Lord, and he will come and save you! Be brave, stouthearted, and courageous. Yes, wait and he will help you.
Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for God to help me; then he listened and heard my cry.
Lets be patient, as we trust God.
Psalm 42:5 Why then be downcast? Why be discouraged and sad? Hope in God! I shall yet praise him again. Yes, I shall again praise him for his help.
GOD’S WAYS ARE DIFFERENT
Many times we want God to come through for us in a very specific way. We want a particular response. But we don’t have Gods perspective. He sees things in a different light. He has a thousand creative ways of solving a problem that we only see one solution to.
Isaiah 55:8-9 This plan of mine is not what you would work out, neither are my thoughts the same as yours! For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than yours.
Expect God to come through for you in any way possible.
