Many wounded people don’t know how to get what they really need—making it difficult to trust anyone, even God—so they wallow in self-pity. God once told me, “Joyce, you can be pitiful or powerful, but you can’t be both.”
Taking our eyes off ourselves enables us to look to God. This positions us to trust Him to meet every need in our lives. God knows exactly what we need, and He promises to provide it through His abundant grace and mercy.
Ask Him to fill you with His power today, and trust Him as Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord our Provider (see Genesis 22:14 KJV).
Prayer Starter: Lord, I need Your help every day, in everything and in every way. I look forward to starting my day by seeking You first and putting all of my trust, my hope…my everything in You, amen.
