DAY 7 TRUST IN GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY

Peace Religious Stock ImagesDAY 7 Trust in God’s Sovereignty

Prayerfully read Romans 8.

Last summer I was walking through one of the darkest seasons of my life, as I daily fought the battle of surviving the rigors of stage four cancer and chemotherapy. I had a lot of time to think and pray during those long days and nights. Truthfully, my prayers had very few words during that time, but the Lord was ever so faithful to speak to me. He gave me two fundamental truths that I held on to throughout the remainder of my treatment. Those truths destroyed the spirit of fear that was tormenting me. Those truths also gave me hope, and they gave me peace. This is what they were. First: I can completely trust in God’s sovereignty in my life. No matter what happens, regardless of my circumstances, and whatever the outcome may be, I believe with all my heart that God’s will for me is best! Even though I may not understand it at the time, I know that in the end, it will always be for my good, and for the good of those around me. I spent much time meditating on this Scripture:

“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)

Secondly: I know that God loves me. His love for me is profound, and I need never doubt it. It is most dramatically demonstrated in Christ’s sacrifice for me on the cross. Nothing, not cancer, not death, not poverty, nor anything can separate me from His love. Consider this well-known passage in Romans:

“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)

As I meditated on these two truths over the course of those challenging months, I was struck by how much the two of them support one another. They truly go together. I know that I can trust in God’s sovereign will for my life because of how much He loves me. The greater revelation I have of His love, the more I am able to trust in His sovereignty. He loves us! Oh how He loves us! Don’t fear. You can trust your heavenly Father in all things.

PRAYER FOCUS

Father, thank You that You are Lord over all! Thank You that You love me with an everlasting love, and thank You that Your Presence is always with me.

  • Thank Him for deliverance from all fear in your life.
  • Pray for your family, neighborhood and work-place – that people will be hungry for the Lord.

  1. Father , today we are coming together in agreement praying especially for families. Since the beginning of time, Family is Your idea , and that’s why the enemy desire is to destroy the families . I pray every Christian home will have a passionate desire to serve you and honor your Name . They will be the Light & Salt in this World . I pray protection , guidance, unity, peace , love & joy over all our Families , thank you for covering us under Your Precious Blood . And for those who don’t know you , I speak Salvation, deliverance and healing . Even though prayer is taken away from Public Schools , we know that the greatest schools on Earth are the homes, so Father may every home becomes a Sanctuary for you . Help us to covet your heart , your will , your purpose ….. So that we can make a difference in our Community , Nation and the World in Jesus Name Amen .
