KEY VERSE: He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now. – Matthew 27:43 (NIV)

The Upper Room Daily Devotional 8th April 2023 MESSAGE

For years, I prayed for a baby. I longed to look into the eyes of my newborn and hear the little sounds that a newborn makes. Through all the waiting, fertility screenings, and treatments, I prayed and waited.

During my years of waiting, I was hesitant to declare my trust in God, especially to those who weren’t believers. I was afraid that they would think, If her God is so trustworthy, why haven’t her prayers been answered?

As we read in today’s quoted verse, Jesus was mocked for his faith as he hung on the cross. To onlookers, it appeared that God had abandoned Jesus, and Jesus even poured his heart out to God asking why he had been forsaken. God didn’t rescue Jesus from the cross as his followers had hoped because God had a much bigger plan that would make redemption possible.

We often cannot see God’s plan. We think, If only God would intervene and fix my problem. But if we continue to trust in God, we are in good company. Even if others mock our trust, God is trustworthy. We have every reason to declare boldly our trust in God.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, help us to trust you when our prayers seem unanswered. Give us courage to declare our trust in you. Amen.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God is always worthy of my trust.

PRAYER FOCUS
Someone who is longing for a child
