Scripture: Hosea (NIV) 1:7 Yet I will show love to Judah; and I will save them—not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but I, the LORD their God will save them.
Observation: God did not need the customary means to save His people. He did not need a great army to fight a great war. In Himself, He was able to save His people!
Application: God is the same today! When I am in trouble, I have my own ideas of how God might help me. They are logical and would work quite well. But when I trust Him, I often find that He does not use any of my ideas. And I find that His ways work out so much better than mine would have done. How logical to trust one who knows so much more than I do and who loves me so much that He sent His Son to die for me—as payment for my sins!
Prayer: Lord, Your wisdom and Your love make it logical to trust You at all times, especially in times of trouble! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
