TODAY’S VERSE My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart! Psalms 108:1 (NLT)
TODAY’S THOUGHT There is a difference between “my head being confident” and “my heart being confident.” This is where faith and relationship come in. We read scriptures with our heads, but we meditate with our hearts. We pray “nice” prayers with our heads, but we “cry out to God” with our hearts. We “tell” someone about the gospel with our heads, but we love them and plead for their soul with our hearts. And we know the “reasons for confidence” in God with our heads, but we “experience confidence” in God with our hearts. David knew this kind of confidence in God through his experiential faith. He had a relationship with the true and living God, resulting in true worship and adoration with all his heart. Today, ask God to reveal Himself to you in real and experiential ways. Let your confidence travel the twelve inches from your head to your heart.
TODAY’S PRAYER Father, I thank You for Your presence in my life. Help me to know You better. Help me to be confident in Your love for me, not just in my head, but in my heart. In Jesus’ name. AMEN
