Today, when you pray, trust that God will give the best to you, His child, as He answers our prayers in His love and wisdom. Always be aware, though, that He answers in His way and in His timing.
Apply God’s Word to your life.
Keep looking for and trusting in God’s answers to your prayers.

How will you cooperate with His purposes for your life?
Father, I acknowledge today, once again, that Your are God. Your ways are not my ways. What You think is good is not always what I think is good. Help me to keep trusting in Your answers to my prayers. Unleash Your power through me as I continue to ask, seek and knock. I want to trust You with all my heart. Amen.
