Sorry I didn't get to this yesterday but here it is today.
The Versus that were suggested for Monday April 12,2010 are:
22 So Moses brought Isreal from the Red Sea, and they went into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.
23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord showed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them.
But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my God.
Those were the verses that I read.
When our life is going the way we want to, we praise the Lord and know that he is with us and we trust him implicitly. When things start going wrong, the majority of us (myself included) tend to blame him for what is going wrong We don't trust that he gave us the obstacle because he knows we can overcome it and be stronger.
We need to learn to not only trust our God when things are going right, but to remember to trust and lean on our God when things go wrong. He is always with us. If we only praise him when our life is "perfect" and not when they aren't, we are not truly trust Our Father.
If we try and praise him when our life is full of obstacles, we will be able to fully trust God in all that he does for us and to our lives.
