Maybe you are a single parent and you are struggling to care for your children. You may have ran out of diapers, your power is off, your water is off, and you have no food. You feel helpless, and seeing your children suffer is heart wrenching. To you single mother, this is for you. God is a Father to the fatherless. You are His daughter and He is your Father. He will put an end to poverty and suffering in your life. Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. Don’t curse God, not even in your thoughts! He will make a way out of no way for you, and as you put your trust in Him, He will turn your situation completely around. People have made promises to you and have not kept them, however, God will never break His promises to you. Not one. He hears the cries of your heart and His provisions are coming swiftly. He is Jehovah-Jireh—He is God your Provider. Even though you don’t have a husband in the home, God will take care of you. If He has to touch a strangers heart to help you, He will. If He has to cause food to miraculously appear on your doorstep, He will. If He has to give you a creative idea, He will. Even though it may be hard, stand on His Word and trust Him. He loves you and because He loves you He will take care of you.
“Father to the fatherless, defender of widows—this is God, whose dwelling is holy.” (Psalm 68:5 NLT)
Prayer: Father, I put my trust in You. I have no where else to turn but to You. You are my God and only You are able to deliver me out of this. I pray You deliver me from poverty. I refuse to lose hope and give up. Help me keep my mind stayed on You and Your promises. I receive Your strength and peace right now. I receive Your love. You love me and You love my children. Because You love us, You will make sure we are provided for. I pray You position me to one day be a great blessing to others who are in this same situation. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
