Remember at this very moment and throughout your day today that with God, NOTHING is impossible. God performs miracles daily and grants us grace and mercy many times over. When you are hoping for a miracle and it doesn’t happen, examine what the Perfect Teacher is showing you about yourself, your circumstances, and most importantly, what is at the center of your heart. It is in these times of weakness, when we look outward to serving God, and less inward, that we are strengthened and He is glorified. Use your weakness to draw you close to your God, for only He, not a change in circumstances will bring you the peace and comfort that you desire.
O Heavenly Father, I come to you with all my weaknesses, physical, emotional and spiritual. Help me accept your invitation to be comforted in your presence…and to remember that nothing is impossible for you. I pray that I might take my minds off my problems so that I can focus my attention on you. I know that you can do far beyond what I ask, far beyond what I can imagine. Praise you Lord, Thank you Lord. Help me move away from simply asking you to do this and that…rather help me attune myself to what you are already doing in my life.
When fear and anxiety wedges it way into my thoughts, remind me that you are my Shepherd. Through my faith I know you will care for me….so remind me that I need not be afraid of anything. Help release control of my live to your will. Help me know and believe that the safest place I can be is within your will.
In Christ’s name I pray, Amen.
For with God, nothing will be impossible.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Psalm 23: 1-6
