1 Peter 3:3-4

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. - 1 Peter 3:3,4

If You Learn to Trust Me

This was my devotion this morning and I thought it was a good reminder to trust and rely on God.
He's got this. Whatever you're going through, He's walking the road with you.

May 7
If you learn to trust Me - really trust Me - with your whole being, then nothing can separate you from My Peace. Everything you endure can be put to good use by allowing it to train you in trusting Me. This is how you foil the works of evil, growing in grace through the very adversity that was meant to harm you. Joseph was a prime example of this divine reversal, declaring to his brothers: "You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good." 

Do not fear what this day, or any day, may bring your way. Concentrate on trusting me and on doing what needs to be done. Relax in My sovereignty, remembering that I go before you, as well as with you, into each day. Fear no evil, for I can bring good out of every situation you will ever encounter.

"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive." 
- Genesis 50:20 

"Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me." 
- Psalm 23:4 

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths." 
Proverbs 3:5-6 

I hope this encourages you as much as it did me. 
God bless!

  2. Hello Taleisha. So good to know you through your profile on the blogger. I am also gald to stop by your blog "Unfading Elegance" and the post on it "If you learn to trust me". Very moving and encouraging devotion on trusting God. I am blessed by your post and knowing you too. I am in the Pastoral ministry for last 35yrs in the great city of Mumbai, India a city with great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healign to the broken hearted. We also encourage young people as well as adults from the west to come to Mumbai on a short / long term missions trip to work with us in the slums of Mumbai amongst poorest of poor to share the good news and to give them new hope, life and future. We would love to have such young people who are in your contact to come to Mumbai on a short / long term missions trip to work with us during their summer/ Christmas vacation. I am sure they will have a life changing experience. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you very soon.
