Bible verse for February 19
Wait and trust the Lord. Don’t be upset when others get rich or when someone else’s plans succeed. (Psalm 37:7 NCV)
Prayer Reflections for February 19
My husband and I run into the same argument whenever I am driving with the GPS. I am directionally challenged and need my GPS wherever I go. My husband can learn directions super fast, but since we like to talk in the car I’ll turn the GPS on anyways.
This is usually ok until I hit one issue: if the GPS changes the route.
“I know the fastest way,” my husband will say. “Just go the other way.”
“But what if there is a reason they are sending us this way?” I ask. “Maybe there is an accident we don’t know about.”
“It will be fine,” he says.
99% of the time, there is a reason our GPS sent us a different route, and we end up sitting in the middle of the unexpected.
So it is the same way with life.
God sees the whole picture. He plans things a certain way if we are patient. But sometimes that can be hard when we don’t see the big picture and it looks like everyone else around us is “succeeding.” That is when we tend to do things on our own, not knowing what our God-given GPS, the Holy Spirit, knows.
- How do you think you could be more patient today?
- What steps would you have to take to be more patient in God’s plan?
February 19 Prayer
Dear Lord, help me be patient in Your will and Your plan. I want to be still in the presence of you and wait for you to act (Psalm 37:7.) Remind me that I cannot see the whole picture, but by following You I will always be on the right path. Amen.
