I am extremely excited and thankful to share with you today a God Gold from a good friend of mine, Matt Howard! I had asked Matt if he was interested in writing a God Gold awhile back and thankfully he was because what I thought I saw in his pure and faithful heart was displayed for real in this message! Before posting this message I read it myself and it resonated with me the very next day as I found myself in a situation that called for this truth found here to get me through! Then, later that day, still before this Gold had even been posted, I was listening to a friend discuss some tough situations he was going through. Not having the words to say to help my friend, this God Gold message from Matt came to mind so I sent my friend these truths which turned out being EXACTLY what he needed to hear!!! It amazes me how God works from one person’s heart to another, and to another to bring His faithful and loving presence so HUGE in our lives when we need it most! After seeing what God has already done through this gold even before being made public, I can’t wait to see what all God has in store to use these truths in your life!!! BIG thank you to Matt again for sharing what God laid on his heart and Matt is also one of the most talented musicians I’ve ever seen so this may not be the last time you’ll hear from him!!!
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways submit to Him, And He will make your paths straight.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
Good morning God Gold Family! My name is Matt Howard, and I hope that this truth speaks into your life this morning. Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of my favorite verses, reminding us to place all of our trust in God alone, laying all of our burdens at his feet. It promises us that God will take care of us no matter our circumstance. Every day, I have to remind myself to cast my cares upon the Lord and commit everything to prayer. I pray that whatever you are going through that you would realize that you are NOT alone in the fight and that every circumstance is a part of God’s PERFECT plan.
Isaiah 55:8-9- “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the Lord. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Jeremiah 29:11– “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
God’s ways are higher than our ways, and he has a PERFECT plan for each and every one of us. Right now, I challenge you to commit anything and everything in your life to prayer. Whatever burdens or worries you carry; I pray that you would surrender it all to God.
Proverbs 18:10- “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.”
