Verse of the Day: With All Your Heart

 “When you search for Me with all your heart.”   Jer 29:13 NKJV

God isn’t moved by our eloquence or the multiplicity of our words. He’s moved by a heart that spills the burdens of the day across the altar, exposing every pain to the power of a God who “can.” Can what? Can do whatever you have the faith to believe Him for.

“Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Mk 11:24 NKJV).

Our confidence in prayer is not based on our ability to speak, but on God’s ability to hear and understand. He knows what we are trying to say. Either we learn to pray, or become good at worrying! What we give to God, He handles. What we keep, we handle.

Spiritually, when everything is “going out” and nothing’s “coming in,” we collapse under the weight of it all. Is that where you are today? If so, prayer is your answer. It restores what life depletes.

When we pray we’re saying, “Lord, I believe you’re more competent to deal with this than I am, and I trust You to do it.” When we pray that way the heart of our boss is in God’s hands, the surgery we dread is in His hands, our children and our finances are in His hands. God is ready to intervene on our behalf — just pray from your heart.

“Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass” (Ps 37:5 NKJV)

May the Lord cause you to triumph over your enemies. Amen.
