Are you distressed? I am. Most recently, I fight anxiety day and night.￼ Truly the only thing that really helps me is speaking God’s word – praying God‘s word.￼ Speaking God’s word puts things into perspective. Praying His word covers it all – becomes the perfect prayer – because it is His word! It is powerful. And it speaks to my anxious heart.
So I give you this sunset as a reminder of His mighty power, His faithfulness, and His sustenance.
I invite you to speak these word and to pray them. This short passage is Psalm 51:1-12￼￼￼
“Have mercy on me, O God,according to your unfailing love;according to your great compassionblot out my transgressions.Wash away all my iniquityand cleanse me from my sin.For I know my transgressions,and my sin is always before me.Against you, you only, have I sinnedand done what is evil in your sight;so you are right in your verdictand justified when you judge.Surely I was sinful at birth,sinful from the time my mother conceived me.Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;you taught me wisdom in that secret place.Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.Let me hear joy and gladness;let the bones you have crushed rejoice.Hide your face from my sinsand blot out all my iniquity.Create in me a pure heart, O God,and renew a steadfast spirit within me.Do not cast me from your presenceor take your Holy Spirit from me.Restore to me the joy of your salvationand grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.”
I especially find comfort in the last two lines (verse). For it is that joy I desire and that willing spirit I so need.
