Prayer Focus For Today 8th August 2022: A Prayer To Renew My Trust In God

“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.” (Psalm 9:10 NLT)
I couldn’t understand why the insurance company would deny my request for the medical test I needed. Even with the doctor’s convincing explanation, the test wasn’t covered, so I would be responsible for the cost. Why would God allow this to happen? This test would have given us information on how to proceed with treatment. I left the doctor’s office discouraged and without answers. I needed to renew my trust in God to guide me through the confusion I felt.

In our lives, we will have times when we want answers. That need-to-know will lead our thoughts in a negative direction if we lose focus on the truth of Scripture. So we must remind ourselves that God is sovereign, and he knows the best plan for us.

In Joshua 2, a woman named Rahab was given an opportunity that would change her life forever. She had a choice between doing what the world expected or trusting God’s sovereignty. Rahab chose to trust the Lord and step out in faith to help his people. She believed the Lord would do what He promised— protect her and her family. Rahab’s story inspires me to trust God when the odds are stacked against me.

God honored Rahab by rescuing her when the walls of her home fell. As the Israelites came to conquer the city of Jericho, Rahab’s family was spared. From her example, we can be encouraged to demonstrate that same level of trust in our almighty God.

“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.” (Psalm 9:10 NLT)

Things will not always go as we expect. Closed doors may cause us to try and figure out what went wrong. But in God we have hope. As I prayed and sought the Lord in my confusion over the denied test, I sensed renewed peace. Even though that door closed, other tests led the doctors to the right treatment path for me. God had a plan, and he beckoned me to trust him.

Are you facing a battle today that’s left you with more questions than answers? Are you feeling uncertain about your situation and your future? Let the truth of Rahab’s words help you renew your trust in God. “…For the Lord your God is the supreme God of the heavens above and the earth below.” (Joshua 2:11)

God works in the midst of our hurt when we don’t understand how things could possibly work out. He is faithful, and we can trust him. Let’s renew our trust in God today with this prayer.

PRAYER FOR TODAY.

Let’s pray:

Dear Lord,
Lately, I’ve been discouraged because I don’t have the answers. I don’t see how my situation will work out. I get confused and frustrated over closed doors. Forgive me for not trusting you in all things. Help me renew my trust in you.

I know you are present with me in my pain, and you are also working things out according to your perfect will. Even when I can’t see it, you are working on my behalf. I proclaim my faith in you, God. Let the words of Rahab in Joshua 2:11 be my battle cry when I struggle to trust, “For the Lord your God is the supreme God of the heavens above and the earth below.” Thank you for your guiding hand in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

This Is the Assurance of Answers to Your Prayers – Matthew 7:7-11

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

Or which one of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will YOUR FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN GIVE GOOD THINGS TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM!

Please pray with faith in your heart and remember to lead someone to pray with these prayer points!
