‘Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do His will. And I know that I will not be put to shame.’ - Isaiah 50:7
The Sovereign Lord is your helper, and He will not let you down. So be determined to do what He tells you to do. Do the next thing that He place in front of you – it is the key to peace. He will bring you through the valleys, and lift you out of the miry clay of life.
Prayer: Lord, You are my helper, and my help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. I am determined to follow You, and to do Your will. Please step into my situation, and may the hope of the fact that You will help me, shine like a flame within my heart. Amen.
‘My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.’ - Psalm 73:26
In the unpredictability of life, we have a constant, on whom we can rely. In the midst of all the change, distress and chaos, our hearts can know strength. He is your provider and your protector, and He will be the strength of your heart. He is your comforter and counsellor, and He is yours forever.
Prayer: Lord, Thank You that no matter what I go through, You are right there with me. In the difficulties, and in my internal struggles, hope is always there, because You are there with me. Regardless of what I go though, You remain my source of strength and hope. Amen.
‘For this God is our God for ever and ever; He will be our guide even to the end.’ - Psalm 48:14
Never underestimate the role the Lord plays in your life. This God, the One Who has carried you this far, will deliver you. He is your Lord and Saviour, and He remains faithful to us forever. He will guide you, and even when earthly life is over, He will still be with you.
Prayer: Lord, Thank You that You are always with me. I can trust, believe, and know that You are MY God for ever and ever. Nothing I ever go through is unknown to You, and You will always be my guide. Amen.
‘Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He spoke a blessing. Then He broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.’ - Matthew 14:19
In this story, a great miracle was about to take place. The Lord did four things: He looked to heaven, He blessed, He broke and He gave. This can be the story of our lives, as we take what He gives us, and give it away. Before the miracle, He looked to heaven, did the possible, and God did the impossible.
Prayer: Lord, as I trust You for miracles in my life and circumstances, may I always remember to look to You, as the source of my miracle. May I be ready to take what You have given and done for me, and use it to be a blessing to others. Amen.
‘What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs.’ - Matthew 10:27
The Lord can use the dark and difficult seasons of life, to speak to us. Our experiences, and what He has taught us, can be a blessing to others. When we pass through the valley and the shadows, He has something to tell us. But there comes a time when we step into the daylight, and proclaim His faithfulness.
Prayer: Lord, I recognise that You want to use every season of my life to speak to me. May my ears be open and attentive, regardless of the season, so that when the right time comes, I will be willing to speak and proclaim Your goodness. Amen.
