Devotions from Judy’s heart
We are given so many wonderful promises but often we have very low expectations. The Lord has promised that He will answer even before we call, He will bear our burdens, He will provide according to His riches, He will give us peace instead of anxious thoughts etc. Last Sunday I was at our new church and we usually have coffee and cookies in the middle of the service. But that Sunday we were to have coffee at the new site for the church when the service at the theater was over. I was expecting coffee and cookies again but to my surprise there were egg salad sandwiches, veggies and dip, muffins, coffee and juice etc. What a nice surprise beyond what I had anticipated. Sometimes I think we aim too low, or we go to the wrong place when we need help. Instead of going to the Lord and trusting He will direct us and give us what we need, we may get anxious and think we have to fix things ourselves. Instead let us go to the source of every good thing and believe He means what He says in His Word and expect incredible things!
