CARRIED THROUGH TRIBULATION
“Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God” (Ps 42:11 ESV).
“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by” (Ps 57:1-3 ESV).
FATHER, when my body reels from fright and I can’t stop the reaction though my thoughts tell me that everything is fine. I collapse in tears at Your feet. I know full well that there is nothing in this world to be frightened of with You brooding over every circumstance You give me.
I know I must use my faith to span the gap between how I feel and what I know. But, I thank You that You make up what is lacking of my faith (Jer 3:22). You send out Your light and Your truth; You give me a lantern, compass and a map so I can find You (Ps 43:3). You are the only one who can fulfill Your purpose for me, I can’t. You must come form heaven and save me (Ps 57:2-3).
And thank You that You do send Your truth and light to me. You meet me with all I ask You for (Ps 59:10). You bring me out from under the burdens (Ex 6:6). You send out Your steadfast love and faithfulness to me and make me praise You again (Ps 57:3).
