Read Hosea chapter 1


Hosea 1:7–Yet I will show love to Judah; and I will save them–not by bow, sword or battle, or by horses and horsemen, but I the Lord their God, will save them.


We pray and we ask God to save us when we are going through tough times. Yet, do we really expect it? God is certainly capable of using whatever means or methods He desires to be able to intervene in any circumstance, but do we recognize God when He is at work? Here, God indicates that he is going to save the people of Judah in such a way that they will not be able to attribute it to anything else except God. When we are walking through difficulties as well as easy times, do we see God’s hand in everything and recognize that He is saving us and providing for us in every way?

Father, You are there and You are the One who will save us. I pray that I will see You moving in all areas of my life. I know that You are over every circumstance and I will give You praise for all that You do.
