The Word For You Today
Who Are you Relying On? Jesus said, “Here on earth you will have many trials” (Jn 16:33 NLT). You solve one problem, and another one comes along to take its place. They’re not all big but they’re all necessary to your spiritual growth. How do you assess the strength of something? By testing it! The Bible says: “Don’t be...shocked that you are going through testing...it will prepare you” (IPe 4:12-13 CEV). Some of your most life-enriching experiences will come during your worst moments-when your heart is broken, when you feel abandoned, when you’re out of options, when your pain levels go through the roof-and you turn to God. That’s when you learn to pray heartfelt, honest-to-God prayers. When you’re in pain you don’t have the energy for superficial ones. And that’s when you discover, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted” (Ps 34:18 NLT). God could have kept Joseph out of prison, Daniel out of the lions’ den, Jeremiah out of the slimy pit, and Paul from being shipwrecked, but He didn’t. As a result, each one of them was drawn closer to God and impacted the world around them. Your problems force you to look to God and depend on Him instead of yourself. This is especially hard on superachievers like Paul. “We...saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us” (2 Co 1:9 TLB). You’ll never know what God can do until God is all you’ve got. So place your needs into His capable, loving hands, and watch what happens. This article was from “The Word For You Today”.

The Author of The Word For You today passed away on June 5th at his home in Atlanta, Georgia . Many of you enjoy Bob Gass’ daily devotionals each day during your time with the Lord. Bob made provision that the devotional booklet would continue when he passed and began a long writing project that would ensure the ministry would continue for many years—long after he passed away. So, Lord Willing, we will continue to purchase these booklets and pass them on to our listeners. FMI on the devotional and Mr. Gass, check out https://vision.org.au/remembering-bob-gass.
Summer is here. It will be time to relax or have a vacation. We may travel away, entertain friends and/or family at home, or just participate in the many local town festivities. However you enjoy this summer may I ask you not to forget our needs? WFST will continue to share the Word of God in song and teaching programs during these long months ahead and will need your continued prayer and financial support. Thank you for your faithfulness. God bless you all.
Philippians 1: 3 - 6
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (NIV)
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
