THE UPPER ROOM DEVOTIONAL

MESSAGE

The first day of a new venture can be both exciting and unnerving. My first day of college brought many firsts — a new job, a new city, a new church, a new home. These firsts brought a mix of anticipation and apprehension into my life.

With each new venture, I know what I am leaving behind, but I don’t know what I will find ahead. This requires me to learn to trust God over again — I know of God’s past faithfulness, but I have to overcome my apprehension about the future.

Recently I retired and struggled with a new first — trying to find my place in a new season of life. Thankfully, God knows all about first days. After all, God created them! When God created the world, God created light out of darkness and called light “day” and darkness “night.” Each day brought a new beginning and ending, and each new day God is faithful in giving us light.

The Upper Room Devotional 20th March 2022

As we face new beginnings and an unknown future, we can take heart because God is with us. We can trust God to guide us and provide for our needs. God leads, encourages, and supports us through all of our days and has promised never to leave or forsake us (see Deut. 31:6).

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

God is with me in all my beginnings and endings.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Dear Lord, remind us that you go before us this day. We want the light of your word to lead and guide us in whatever we may face. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS

People in a period of transition
