“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 42:5

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise Him,
my Saviour and my God.

.

– Psalm 42:5 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

When, for whatever reason,

deep inside we feel discouraged, downcast, depressed, helpless…

then, like the Psalmist, we should speak to our soul

and encourage it to place all its hope in God, our Saviour.

.

Place your feelings aside

and with determination praise Him,

because our faith reassures us

that the Lord is near to those who are discouraged;
and that He saves those who have lost all hope. (Ps 34:18)

.

Our loving God cannot remain impassive

in the face of our cries for help.

When we make His mercy, truth and power, our refuge

then we are reassured that the God of our life,

and the Rock of our salvation,

will not forget us.

.

We must never let go of Him

as we struggle against our despondency,

and the Lord will help us control our doubts and fears.

.

As we entrust ourselves to God

and allow Him to lead us,

we know that…in His time…we shall overcome.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

.

– Our Lord Jesus Christ (Mat 11:28-30)

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Thank You, Lord, for always being so near.

You are my hope and You renew me. You give me life!
