“Trouble and anguish have come upon me, yet Your commandments are my delight. Your testimonies are righteous forever; give me understanding that I may live.” (Psalm 119:143-144)
Life in this age is not perfect. Anguish comes along. Those with an idyllic faith are crushed, for their faith is in their own idea. Faith in the Lord is a sustaining faith, for you know that adversity will come. Trust in the Lord as He leads you through every circumstance of life. He will lead you in season and out of season and through every storm that comes along throughout life.
Lord, help me to not be conditional in faith. Things do happen and there are times when I want to give up. Lead me O Lord in the way of truth that I would walk with You no matter the circumstances. Take away those thoughts that lead me to think You are not there because something has happened. Your promises are not conditioned upon what happens in this world, but upon Your will.
Lead me O Lord this day that I would walk by faith such that no matter what comes, I turn to You. Help me now and always to see in You the hope of glory and to live toward that day when I shall see You face to face and know fully even as I have always been fully known. May I be found walking humbly with You this day in the grace and mercy that You provide. Amen.
