Walking on Slick Paths

Psalm 119:165Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.” march

What are your resources for a winning spiritual life? 15 minutes daily in the Word? Prayer? Willingness to serve? Gathering with like-minded believers?

God’s word and law is our safety line and resource as we walk those slick paths we face.

Lead Me to the Rock

“Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I, for You have been my refuge, a strong tower against the enemy.” Psalm 61:1-3

When your heart is overwhelmed, it’s easy to forget that God is there, waiting for you to turn to Him. Often we worry, stress and struggle with our problems, looking for solutions in our own power, and feeling faint of heart. What can we do? Who do we have to turn to? We feel alone and desperate, afraid to wake up and get out of bed. It would be easy to stay there and avoid our problems, but that doesn’t solve them.

When our heart is overwhelmed, when we feel like the world is against us, when we feel like giving up, we can run to God, who is always there for us. He’s our loving Father, who wraps us in loving arms and comforts us. He protects us from the enemy, and He is our rock when we falter.

Thank You God that He cares for each of us. We can place our trust in Him, knowing that even though the storm rages around us, we are safe in His love.
