WORD ...OF... THE... DAY!
                             
No updates on Saturday in honor of the Sabbath

But first seek His kingdom and His righteousness and all these things will be added onto you...Matthew 6:33



 BUCKLING UP! 

     "The captain has turned on the seat beat sign indicating that we are entering an area of turbulence. Please return to your seats immediately and securely fasten your seat belt." Flight attendants give that warning when necessary because in rough air, unbuckled passengers can be injured. Secured in their seats, they can safely ride out the turbulence.
     Most of the time, life doesn't warn us of the unsettled experiences coming our way. But our loving Father knows and cares about our struggles, and He invites us to bring our cares, hurts, and fears to Him. The Scriptures tell us, "This high Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most" (Hebrews 4:15-16 NLT). 
     In seasons of turbulence, going to our Father in prayer is the best thing we can do. The phrase "Grace to help us when we need it" - means that in His presence we can be "buckled" in peace during threatening times, because we bring our concerns to the One who is greater than all! When life feels overwhelming, we can pray. He can help us through the turbulence.

Father, sometimes life is overwhelming. Help me to trust You with all the turbulent moments, knowing how deeply You care for my life.   

 ALTHOUGH WE CANNOT ANTICIPATE THE TRIALS OF LIFE, WE CAN PRAY TO OUR FATHER WHO FULLY UNDERSTANDS WHAT WE FACE. 
     
Hebrews 4:11-16
      Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience. 
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account. 
     Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God's throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. 

Insight: Throughout the Scriptures, we are reminded that God cares about our struggles. When David was pursued by the murderous Saul, he sought refuge in a cave (1 Samuel 22:1;24:3-4). It is likely this is where he penned psalm 142 as his prayer to God. The despondent David lamented that "no one is concerned for me" and he had no one to turn to for help (v.4). But David did turn his troubles over to his God: "I cry aloud to the Lord.....I tell [him] my trouble" (vv.1-2). 
     Like David, we may be "caved in" by our troubles, finding ourselves "in desperate need" (v.6). We may lament that "no one cares" (v.4). But we too can turn our troubles over to God. We can make God our refuge, echoing in faith and trust, "You are my refuge" (v.5), and we can cast our "anxiety on him because he cares for [us]" (1 Peter 5:7). 
     How does knowing God cares for you help you overcome worry and helplessness?
