MFM DEVOTIONAL TODAY 30TH DECEMBER 2021, THURSDAY
TOPIC: WHOLEHEARTED TRUST (II)
Fire Scripture: Matthew 6:25-32
MFM Daily Devotional 30th December 2021 Thursday | Outline
The issue of wholehearted trust in God can never be overemphasised, because God is ready to guide us in the right ways, give us His underserved favour and keep His promises. In the most difficult times of our lives, we can commit our plans and situations to the Lord and trust Him to work things out for our best. Our own strength is limited, our wisdom is shallow, but He knows the best.
In our Fire Scripture, Jesus does not mean that it is wrong to plan and make provisions for future physical needs, but He is speaking against anxiety or worry that shows lack of faith in God’s care and love. The words in the Fire Scripture contain God’s promise to His children, including you the reader of this devotional. In this age of trouble and uncertainty, God has promised to provide our food, clothing and other necessities.
God, according to His word, will assume full responsibility for those who are submitted entirely to His authority and purposes. Beloved even in warfare, David’s wholehearted trust in the Lord of Hosts, the God of the army of Israel, gave him victory over Goliath when, by all indication, he was disadvantaged (1 Sam 17:37; 49-52). Have you not done things your own way? Have you not relied on your own wisdom?
MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR D.K OLUKOYA
Are you not in a position of those who think God is too slow or that God will come late? Put your whole trust in Him; see Him in action in your situation and that mountain will become plain. Beloved, you should pray to God to give you the grace to trust Him absolutely and wholeheartedly. This kind of trust births unquestioning, prompt and complete obedience to God’s commandments.
Wholehearted trust in God is also very rewarding. It is the secret of the exploits and success stories of Bible characters like Abraham, Enoch, David, Daniel, Ruth, Mary (the mother of Jesus), Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth and the apostles. I pray that any stronghold preventing you from trusting God wholeheartedly shall collapse today, in the name of Jesus.
Psalm 37: 5 – Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Nothing happens by accident. God is directing each one of your steps.
Your faith shall not wither, in the name of Jesus.
‘Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus
1. ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His word,
Just to rest upon His promise,
Just to know “Thus saith the Lord.”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust Him more!
2. O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood,
Just in simple faith plunge me
‘Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
3. Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease,
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest and joy and peace.
4. I’m so glad I learned to trust Him,
Precious Jesus, Saviour, Friend;
And I know that He is with me,
Will be with me to the end.
