A 2018 study of adults in the United Kingdom found that, on average, “they checked their smartphones every twelve minutes of the waking day.” But let’s be honest, this statistic seems extremely generous when I consider how frequently I search Google to find the answer to a question or respond to endless alerts from the texts, calls, and emails that come to my phone throughout the day. We consistently look to our devices, confident they’ll provide what we need to keep us organized, informed, and connected.

As believers in Christ, we have a resource infinitely better than a smartphone. God loves and cares for us intimately and desires for us to come to Him with our needs. The Bible says that when we pray, we can be confident “that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14). By reading the Bible and storing God’s words in our hearts, we can pray assuredly for things that we know He already desires for us, including peace, wisdom, and faith that He’ll provide what we need (v. 15). Sometimes it may seem like He doesn’t hear us when our situation doesn’t change. But we build our confidence in Him by consistently turning to Him for help in every circumstance (Psalms 116:2). This allows us to grow in faith, trusting that although we may not get everything we desire, He’s promised to provide what we need in His perfect timing.

Hey there and welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread meeting was written by Kimmy unloader and she titled it confident in God by 2018 study of adults in the United Kingdom found that on average they check their smart phones every 12 minutes of the waking day but let's be honest, this statistic seems extremely conservative when I consider how frequently I search Google to find the answer to a question or respond to endless alerts that come to my phone throughout the day. Many of us consistently look to our devices confident they'll provide what we need to keep us organized and formed and connected as believers in Jesus we have a resource infinitely better than a smart phone. God loves and cares for us intimately and desires for us to come to him with our needs.

The Bible says that when we pray we can be confident that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us by reading the Bible and storing God's words in our hearts, we can pray assuredly for the things we know he already desires for us, including peace, wisdom and faith that help provide what we need. Sometimes it may seem like God doesn't hear us what our situation doesn't change what we build our confidence in God by consistently turning to him for help in every circumstance. This allows us to grow in faith, trusting that although we may not get everything we desire. He's promised to provide what we need in his perfect timing. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from first John chapter 5 verses 13 through 15. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us and if we know that he hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have what we asked of him.

Let's pray dear heavenly father, thank you that we can come confidently to you in prayer, trusting you have the power to supply all our needs according to your will. It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Thanks for listening today. My name is Alicia Reisinger and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
