Heavenly Father, thank You for the many things there are for me to learn from King David's desire to fly away from his problems, in order to find rest for his soul. How easy it is to wish to be free from the trials and tribulations in life, and how important to understand that the only rest for our soul is to be positioned in Christ and guided and comforted by His Holy Spirit. Thank You that by faith in Him I have rest for my soul, even though I may be surrounded by those that hate me and immersed in a world at enmity with God. Thank You for all that Jesus has done for me - bearing the rejection of His people, the denial of His disciples, and the betrayal of His trusted friend. Thank You that He died for me and rose again so that I may have forgiveness of my sin and receive newness of life, in Your everlasting kingdom. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, thank You that no matter what dangers and evils threaten me, and no matter what terrors and difficulties come near me, I may cast all my burdens upon You, knowing that You will sustain and strengthen me. I know that in Christ, I need never be shaken by terrors or threats. Praise God that greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
