My journal is filled with desperate prayers concerning what have often felt like daunting problems.
- Conversations I'm concerned will be difficult and not go the way I hope.
- Issues of provision and uncertainty surrounding how God will provide.
- Circumstances outside my control that need changing.
You may wake up this morning feeling like there is no hope, no way you'll make it through the day, no way you can put up with anything more, but by God's grace, you'll wake up tomorrow realizing God's grace has carried you over yet another seemingly insurmountable obstacle. But don't take my word for it. I pray Psalm 121 would give you much faith in our gracious God who always comes through...
I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life. The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore. - Psalm 121
