May 31: The Fans and the Critics
Forget the fans and the critics. Let your highest aim be to please God, the only one who can determine your worth.
May 30: A Two-Way Street
Communication is a two-way street. We speak (both verbally and non-verbally) and someone else responds. It is a mistake to think that prayer is somehow different.
May 27: Salvation Belongs To the Lord
David knew that his only chance of winning was if the Lord fought for him, and so he cried out to the only one who could save him.
May 26: Breathe Easy
When we, like David, realize that God is the one who guards us, we will be able to find peace even in the most dire of circumstances.
May 25: Don’t Make It Complicated
Even if the situation you’re in is largely your responsibility (in David’s case it was), don’t rush to figure out what you can “fix” or how you can “convince” God to help you. Just cry out to God. He will make the path forward clear to you.
May 24: Opinions Abound
Opinions about God abound, but at the end of the day they don’t matter. What matters, when you reach your darkest moment, is how well you know God.
May 23: Selah
So the lesson for you and me today is this: don’t rush it. Whatever you’re going through today, bring it to God. Be honest with him about it.
