Daily Devotional for August 05, 2022
Shout for joy, O heavens;
rejoice, O earth;
burst into song, O mountains!
For Yahweh comforts his people
and will have compassion on his afflicted ones. Is 49:13
We all have days, and sometimes it feels like weeks or even months and years, when nothing seems to go right. We can do no right at work. Everything is falling apart in our relationship with our spouse or children or parents. The house is in need of repairs that we can’t seem to find to find the funds for. We have a flat tire or are stuck in traffic at the most inopportune time. The list can go on and on but the effect is the same—nothing seems to go right.
There is one area that is always right and is completely within our control at all times. It should bring us comfort in knowing that we have an elohim that is always looking out for our best interests. It may not seem like this is so. However, He knows the areas where we need to grow spiritually and emotionally. He is always seeking to promote our spiritual maturity and bring us into readiness for an even greater life than the one we now have.
We must always remember the compassion that He has for each of us. We must look to Him when times seem darkest and most difficult. He will provide comfort and care when we need it most.
So, if today becomes one of those days where nothing seems to be going right. Take a moment and look to Yahweh. Stop, stand still and you will see Him moving in your life.
