Prayer Devotional: Day 41

The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. – Psalms 18:2 NIV

We need the Lord as our fortress to block out the annoyances of the world. When we let ourselves get frustrated by other people’s actions, we step outside of the fortress and forget that the Lord can shield us from such miseries.

We become resentful when we become vulnerable to attack or criticism, and often during those moments of frustration, we forget how powerful our God is to help us let go of the things that don’t matter.

He can refocus our thoughts on His will for us. He teaches us during the midst of our frustrations, and we come out of them slightly wiser if we are willing to surrender our burdens to Jesus. He saved us for a reason, and everything we experience He knows before it happens. He knows how we will react before we even begin to reply. He will give us the right words to say the next time if we pause and ask Him to inspire our communications. Amen.

Prayer Journal:Day 327

Day 327

The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. – Psalms 145:14 NIV

I was talking to my mom and told her regarding an unexpected transition, “My heart hurts. My heart aches.” My three-year-old son looked at me and said, “I can fix it.” Then he blew me a kiss. Out of the mouth of babes!

Whenever my son falls down and scrapes his knees, we tell him that we will kiss it better.

I didn’t realize that my son was listening when I said that my heart ached.

The Lord picks up up when we fall. When it seems like the devil is attacking our loved ones, we can remember that God has already won the race. We have to believe, just as a child does, that the Lord wants the best for us and will make it so. When we bow down to pray, we know that the Lord will lift us up, both spiritually and physically. Amen.
