Day 18 – We Can Turn to Him
This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord. They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. They will live in the barren wilderness, in an uninhabited salty land. “But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit. Jeremiah 17:5-8
The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
1. Ask God to reveal the thoughts and attitudes you have that prevent you from putting your hope in Him.
2. Pray for a greater reliance on Him to guard your heart in times of difficulty.
3. Commit to turn to God and making Him your first response every day.
Dear Lord, I acknowledge that You are the everlasting God; my strong fortress and firm foundation. In struggles, help me to be rest assured in Your unchanging character, and to turn to You first in my time of need. In victories, help me to recognise Your grace and unfailing love for me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
