Where is your trust level? Do you find that you have difficulty trusting because of past painful relationship experiences? Sometimes a person will build a wall of distrust preventing those who would be a friend from getting close enough to betray them. Unfortunately this stronghold also prevents the individual from fully trusting God. God sent Jesus to bind up and heal your wounded heart, and He gives you the grace to forgive those who have hurt you. God is faithful–He is on your side. If God be for you who can be against you?

Father, I thank you for giving me the grace to believe in you and your Word even in the midst of the storms of life, providing a place of rest for me. In the midst of seemingly impossible demands, deadlines and tasks at hand, my heart is steadfast, fixed trusting in you. Your strength and boldness are released to me as I confidently rest in your promises. In your presence I am refreshed, restored and renewed in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Isaiah 30:15; Mark 6:31; Psalm 112
