Although it’s a new day dawning, sometimes it feel as though the sun has set on the day before it had a chance to began. Feelings of hopelessness can consume us and cloud our connection to God. Now more than ever it’s important to meditate on God’s word. He must have something pretty special happening for satan to try so hard to shut you down before you begin. Insecurities, thoughts of what will go wrong, an argument, or reliving the past are all lies to plant doubt and cast your eyes on doom for the day. It doesn’t have to stay that way. There isn’t a magic switch to turn on, but lean towards the one who shines the sun on your day. Accept the feelings you have and surrender them to the peace that God offers. Take heart and confidence that the Lord will guide you and stop the arrows. He taught you how to fight the battle. Cozy yourself in the comfort of His truth and rest assured your cries will not last.
Action: Quiet your thoughts and repeat this scripture while the Lord offers you his peace and understanding in the moments to follow. “Let my cry (the worry of my day, the argument that I had, the confusion in my mind) come before you, O Lord; give me understanding according to your word!” Psalm 119:169,
Meditate: Let these words soak in and hover around you. Keep this in the forefront of your mind today.
Truth: God is faithful and he will restore your spirit.
“I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught. John 14:25-27 MSG
