Good morning on this chilly Saturday morning.


There are things we can control and others that we cannot control. We put those things we cannot control in God's hands and thank Him because we trust that He cares for us. This requires faith.


Thanking Him for what He will do requires faith. Faith is the certainty of what is not yet seen. So when we thank God for what He will do, we not only confess our faith in Him, but also remind ourselves that God is in control.


Noah built the ark with the confidence that God was in control of his future. When David confronted Goliath, he had faith that the God who had delivered him from the bear and the lion was the same God who would give him the victory over Goliath. Likewise for Daniel when he was thrown to the lions, and for Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who were thrown into a furnace. The widow of Zarephath obeyed Elijah and served him first, without knowing what would happen next. All these people had one thing in common: they had faith that God was in control of their futures.


"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)


Today is a good day to thank God for what He will do in your life.


Keep warm and keep safe.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
