My word for 2021 is believing. I knew in the fall of 2020 that this would be my word for this year. There were reasons for that that I won’t go into in this blog post. At the time, I had no idea how much I would need the focus on this word in this new year.
I am preparing to return to Japan with all the Covid regulations for travel. It is nerve-racking to say the least. I saw the Lord open wide “the Red Sea” for my return to the states and I know that He can do it again, but oh how easily I forget. It is so easy to get my eyes off of the Lord and onto my circumstances.
Two verses have stood out to me at the beginning of this year. I am memorizing them and adding them to my prayers. Whenever I finish my prayers with these words from God’s precious Word, I am helped.
“Lord, you have told me that if I would believe, I would see Your glory. Lord, I believe. Help thou my unbelief.”
-based on John 11:40 and Mark 9:24
I have seen the Lord help me in my unbelief. So many times I pray about things and then pick the burden back up instead of leaving it with the Lord whose shoulders are so much bigger than mine. I want to get to a place in my life where I am praying believing that I will see the glory of God!
One thought on “Believing”
Your prayer is just right for me too, Kim! Praying that the Lord will indeed open the Red Sea for you to walk right through as you prepare to go back to Japan. I know you already have a strong faith to be willing to do that! So glad you linked up with us this week so we can be praying with you.
