THE UPPER ROOM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 7 MAY 2022, SATURDAY

TODAY’S TOPIC: THE LAND OF “WHAT IS”
Samuel Wagner (California, USA)

TODAY’S READING
Job 38:1-11

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
I will trust God’s good plan for my life.

I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. – Jeremiah 29:11 (NRSV)

I had told my new roommates that the renovations to our rented apartment would be complete before school started. But there we were, with a week of online school behind us and still no apartment. I felt responsible and blamed myself. What if I had communicated more with our landlord? What if I had found another place as a backup? What if, what if, what if?

It is easy to get caught up in the land of “What If,” but as I thought over scripture, I remembered the words from Jeremiah quoted above and God’s words to Job, “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?” (Job 38:2). Who am I to put my plans above God’s? But when I dwell in the land of “What If,” I put my own plans and abilities before my trust in God. If I truly believe that God has great plans for me, I should stop asking “What if?” and trust God.

Now, as I sip warm coffee at the breakfast table in my completed apartment, happily moved in with my roommates, I try my best to live in the land of “What Is” — the place where God lives.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Lord, thank you for the good plans you have for us. Give us the strength to trust you. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
To trust God’s plan for me
