But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.”
Father, my natural tendency is to run from trials and difficulties. With my mouth I have declared my trust in You, but with my heart I have show myself unfaithful. Help me today to stand firmly in my trust in You, whatever may come my way. I take the promises of Your Word as my own and receive strength to rest solely in You. In Jesus name, Amen.
