Rely on Him

Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy shall compass him about. Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart. (Psalm 32:10-11)
God controls and allows every detail of our lives. Nothing happens without His knowledge and approval.
Every day, little changes in schedule or small irritations occur. Everyday, we can choose to let these obstacles upset us, or we can rest in the knowledge that God lovingly ordained them as small irritants to help us look to and rely on Him. For example, we can grumble about the frustrating traffic jam that is keeping us from getting somewhere on time, or we can remember that God knows about our deadlines and view the time sitting in traffic as an opportunity to pray. We can complain, or we can rejoice.
May we allow the knowledge that we are continually surrounded by God’s unfailing love to permeate our lives and chase away our complaints and fears.
When I read this devotion is blessed me. It caused me to pause for a moment and reflect on how I’ve allowed obstacles to frustrate and upset me. What I need to do is rejoice even in moments of frustration. I needed this reminder today and I have a feeling, in the coming mornings as we rush out the door to start our day. I need to choose to set a better tone for our day and be a better example to my children. I hope and pray you are encouraged to do the same no matter what your facing. Rejoice! 
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
