“When I remember God, then I am disturbed; when I sigh, then my spirit grows faint. You have held my eyelids open; I am so troubled that I cannot speak.” (Psalm 77:3-4)
How often do you go through life with the Lord as an add-on? Is He in the center of your life, or an afterthought except in times of trouble? The Lord is the One who holds all things in His hands. It is He who is there in every time of need. Look closely and you will see that it is the Lord who has been there in every hour of need. The Lord alone will never leave you nor forsake you.
Lord, You are there, but often like an ungrateful child I go about my day as if You were not. Hold my eyelids open to see the light You have caused to shine in me that I may know that it is You who guides all things. Lead me through the troubled waters of this age that I may keep my eyes upon You. Help me now and always to simply hold fast to the truth that You alone are God.
Lord Jesus, You purposefully walked amongst us that we may see the light and follow where You lead. Yet, like sheep in a field without a shepherd, I wander aimlessly sometimes. Guide me, O Lord, to walk with You always. Lift me up when I am down and guide me according to Your purposes that I may never look anywhere but to You in, through and for all things. Amen.
