A young girl who was traveling on train for the first time heard that it would have to cross several rivers. She was troubled and fearful as she thought of the water. But each time the train came to a river, a bridge was always there to provide a safe way across. After passing safely over several rivers and stream, the girl settled back in her seat with a sign of relief. Then she turned to her mother and said, â€œIâ€™m not worried anymore. Somebody has put the bridges for us all the way!â€
When we come to deep rivers of trial and the streams of sorrow, we too will find that God in His grace â€œhas put bridges for us all the way.â€ So we need not fall into hopelessness and anxiety. In delightful though often untraceable ways, He will meet our needs. We can be sure that He will provide a way. Those who have given their situations over to God can exclaim with the psalmist, â€œThe Lord is righteous in all His ways and gracious in all His worksâ€¦The Lord preserves all who love Himâ€ (Psalm 145: 17, 20).
Lets thank God; For every blessing what He has done and every bridge what he is made to overcome the trials and tribulations in the year 2009, Lets pray; God we come to your throne of Grace and mercy, We come to You seeking Your protection and Your goodness for the entire new year 2010, often harried and driven by life’s pressures and temptations. But we come to You, not demanding, but submitting our selfâ€™s to be used for your glory — not just today, but for the rest of my life.
In Jesus we pray. Amen.
