Today is one of those times I trust You to hold my hand and make me strong in every circumstance. My faith feels strong now, but yesterday it seemed weak. It’s not that I don’t know who You are and what You can do, it’s my own human frailty that keeps me from going all the way with complete trust.
I waver between doubt and trust. But God, my God, I thank You that You know me from the inside out and You even expected me to react the way I did yesterday. It is comforting to know that Jesus sits at Your right hand NOW making intercession for me, maybe cleaning up my curiously worded prayers so they are perfect by the time You hear them.
And I know what I want to happen today. I know what I want the outcome to be and I want You to hear and answer my prayer, but will You? Yes! You will hear and answer according to our best interest and based on Your big, big love for us.
Father, because I have confidence that Your Word is true and it tells me that when I don’t know exactly what or how to pray, the Spirit intercedes for me with groanings too deep for words; I can have peace. Oh God, You know very well how my heart hurts at the possibilities with this situation, so to have the Spirit pray for me strengthens me, builds my trust once again.
Your love letter to me reassures me that I am never alone and today, this very moment as I know I will hear news that could change our lives, Your Word gives me confidence that with You we can come out more than conquerors.
Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you.
I will leave in a few minutes and I am built up, full of truth, clothed with Christ and armed with Your protection. You are my good and beautiful God and my heart is in Your hands.
In the name of Your Precious Son Jesus and my Perfect Savior, Amen.
