What experiences in your life have eroded your trust of God? How might the conviction of Abraham and the promises of God help you trust God more confidently?
Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief. Bring healing to those places where trust has been broken in my life. Help me distinguish between the limitations to grace that we have in our families, with friends, and among colleagues, and the steady grace that you extend to me. Thank you for being the ultimate promise-keeper. Amen.
~ Jonathan Shively, Executive Director, Congregational Life Ministries
