“But You, O God, the Lord, deal kindly with me for Your name’s sake; because Your lovingkindness is good, deliver me; for I am afflicted and needy, and my heart is wounded within me. I am passing like a shadow when it lengthens; I am shaken off like the locust. My knees are weak from fasting, and my flesh has grown lean, without fatness. I also have become a reproach to them; when they see me, they wag their head.” Psalm 109:21-25)

Lord, You know the troubles of this world. You know how we feel, especially when we feel adversity. Your presence is always there, but there are times when I feel You are distant and removed. Yet You have promised that You are with us always, even unto the end of the age. Let Your promises rule above every circumstance that all would know the You are God and will fulfill Your Word.

Lord, You know when I have foolish doubts and do not believe in what You have said. Help my unbelief that I would boldly walk each and every day in the hope You give. You alone are mighty to save and Your Word shall be fulfilled. Fill my heart with the truth You have spoken so that I will not waver or fall in with those who speak wicked things. Lead me in the truth of Your Word.

Lord Jesus, You walked this earth and know the difficulty of being faithful amidst the troubles of this world. You know the temptations that cause us to waver and doubt. Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would walk now and forever in Your salvation. Let my heart not be troubled, but believe that You are the way, truth, and life and that You are preparing for all who believe a place that is forever. Amen.
