Seek God's Will & You'll Be Blessed

This Week’s Devotional PROMISE:   Source: "Promises From God’s Word for Men" When you seek God’s will and obey His commandments, you will be blessed.

“Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother” Mark 3:35

When Jesus confronted the reality of His impending death on the cross, He asked God that this terrible burden might be lifted. But as He faced the possibility of a suffering that was beyond description, Jesus prayed, “Nevertheless not my will, but thine be done” (Luke 22:42).

As Christians, we too must be willing to accept God’s will even when we don't fully understand the reasons for the hardships that we must endure

When we lose a loved one, experience profound loss, confront circumstances that trouble us to the very core of our souls, when we are worried or anxious, darkness overwhelms us for a while and it seems as if we cannot summon the strength to face another day, but with God’s help we can. We must trust God and turn our concerns over to Him and listen to the quiet assurance of God’s promises. By placing our lives in His hands we learn that He is our shepherd today and throughout eternity. Let us trust the Shepherd.
