In my distress I called upon the Lord, yes, I called out to my God; and from His temple He heard my voice, and my cry for help came into His ears. 2 Samuel 22:7 NASB
As I begin my prayer this morning, many of my friends come to mind. Friends who have been hit by events that have left them reeling. As a storm sometimes appears out of nowhere and creates tornados and hurricanes, leaving destruction in the aftermath, so has their lives been turned upside down by the things they’ve recently faced.
It’s not been an easy year for us either. We’ve endured several falls, fractures, open heart surgery, back surgery and recently been slammed by another horrible diagnosis. How do we get through it? We lay it at the feet of Jesus who took all of our infirmities on himself so that we could walk in healing. We cried, we laughed and than, we worshipped. We worshipped our way into a place of peace and trust. We fell down at His feet and gave ourselves over to whatever He needs for us to do for Him.
If you’re in distress today, let me help you retrain your focus this morning. Begin by remembering that we are His children and that He loves us more than we can even imagine. Let these words become your own as you lay it all down before Him.
Father, my Father, Your love for me is overwhelming. I receive all that You have for me this morning and I want you to know that I trust You. I trust Your plans to be good and not evil, to give me a future and a hope, to satisfy me with good life and show me Your salvation. Regardless of what my eyes may see or my ears may hear, I set myself to trust in what I don’t yet see with my physical eyes or hear with my physical ears.
That same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in me via the Holy Spirit. It’s enough. It’s always enough. I tap into that power this morning, knowing that it will change dark to light as I go through my day. It’s in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Until Next Time,
