Let’s visit with Corrie ten Boom today.
(The following is gathered from Corrie’s writings)
We have a Father in heaven who is almighty. Trust Him and you will experience miracles. Is your future a friend this morning? Remember that God is in control.
We see Your miracles every day, Father, if we only open our eyes to them.
Trust in him at all times, O people
pour out your heart before him
God is a refuge for us
She wrote the following about her parents.
“Father and Mother lived on the edge of poverty, and yet their contentment was not dependent upon their surroundings. Their relationship to each other and to the Lord gave them strength and happiness.”
Lord Jesus, with You close, what else do we really need? With Your love, we have the best; without Your love, we are truly poor, whatever our circumstances.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. – Psalms 46:1
We don’t need to know the answers because we have Jesus. Truly Jesus is the answer to our every need, question, desire and so much more. Our part is to believe and trust in Him.
So many times we wonder why God allows certain things to happen to us. We try to understand the circumstances of our lives, and are left wondering. But the Holy Spirit shows us that God does not make mistakes.
We cannot begin to understand Your aims, Father, and without that understanding, our lives often seem to be a great maze. But we know You see the end of the path. and we trust You to guide us through all the turns and blind alleys.
