Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful insights that David has given us into Your perfect character. Thank You for Your love and grace and that You are our all-knowing God, Who knew us intimately in our mother’s womb and scheduled every day of our life. Thank You that You are the all-powerful God Who has promised to help and protect us; uphold and support us; sustain and defend us; comfort and equip us – heal and help us. I pray that You would search my heart too and expose anything that is clouding my Christian walk and hindering my relationship with You. Cleanse me from my sin, purify my heart, comfort any anxious thoughts and draw me into closer fellowship with Yourself, from this day forward – this I ask in Jesus name, AMEN.Source: Verse of the day for Psalm 139:23
Lord, I don’t want to be anxious about anything, knowing that I can cast all of my anxious thoughts on You, but how difficult I find it to cast all my cares on You, before I start to worry. What often happens is that I become more and more anxious over all the difficulties of life that are crowding in on me, and eventually I turn my thoughts to You and reach out to You in my helplessness.
Lord, in my understanding of Who You are I know that You are always my Rock in times of troubles and over and again I have seen You help in time of need, but very rarely do You act in the way that I expect!
Lord, I know that I am not to be anxious about the provision of life and the needs of the home, nor am I to fret over the actions and attitudes of evildoers, who seem to encompass me on every side, for I know and believe that the day is coming when evildoers will wither away like the grass of the field, as Your Word teaches, while those that trust in the Lord will dwell securely, under the shadow of Your wings.
Help me Lord to cast my anxious thoughts on You before I start to fret. Help me to reach out to You in my helplessness before I try to sort things out myself, for You have promised to be my help in time of trouble. Thank You for being such a faithful God.
