In the Model Prayer, Jesus prays, “Give us this day our daily bread.”
In Lamentations 3, Jeremiah affirms that God’s mercies are new every morning.
These passages help us live in a day-to-day reliance on God in Christ. But what about those seasons in life when we are simply trying to somehow make it moment-by-moment?
In Psalm 31:14-15 David says this. “But I trust in you, Lord; I say, ‘You are my God. My times are in your hands….’”
My times are in Your hands.
No matter what time increment best fits our journey, God’s immediate presence is available. Day-to-day or hour-to-hour or minute-to-minute or second-to-second…God has us. God has us when we are clinging. God has us when we have let go for a while.
God, our times are in Your Hands.
God, this moment is in Your Hands.
God, this breath is in Your Hands.
God, I choose to be in Your Hands.
Grace and peace,
