“But my eyes are upon You, O GOD the Lord; in You I take refuge; do not leave my soul destitute. Keep me from the snares they have laid for me, and from the traps of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I escape safely. ” (Psalm 141:8-10)
As we struggle in this age there are seasons. There are times when the Lord feels close and we rejoice. There are times when the Lord feels distant and we lament. These are things we feel; but they are fleeting shadows. The Lord has given His Word that He is always with us and will never leave nor forsake us. Trust in the Word of the Lord and not what you feel. The Lord is always true.
Lord, where I am hampered by my feelings, lead me away from them that I would not be led away from the faith You have given me. Guide me, O Lord, according to Your goodness to see that in You alone is hope and all that I need. Lead me to trust in You above all things. You are the rock of all creation and in You is the hope for all life. Guide, O Lord, in the way that is true.
Come, Holy Spirit, and minister to my heart that I would be led by You and not the circumstances I am in or by the feelings I have. I am saved by grace through faith and that is a gift You have given. Guide me in the gift that I may walk humbly under Your guidance this day. Lead me to do what is pleasing in the Father’s sight. Lead me to trust and rejoice that You are with me. Amen.
