Remember Who Is With You
3 For You have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. 4 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. (Psalm 61:3-4)
As you go about your day, remember the Lord is with you. He is your shelter and strong tower from the enemy and from the difficult events of the day. When you feel your patience wearing thin, step back and pray for Jesus to take over. When fear tries to attack you, stop, take a breath and pray for the Lord to calm your fears. When worry and concern fight to have control over you, stand firm and pray for the Jesus to away your anxieties and to replace it with peace.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
As you go about your day, remember, you are not alone. Jesus is with you every step of the way. He is your shield and defense in times of trouble; He is your strong tower. When the enemy utilizes situations to cause your emotions to run high, stand firm and utilize your weapons of scripture (the Bible) and prayer and have faith that God will come to your rescue. He hears your prayers but you must believe it. He knows your fears, but you must have faith that He can help you and allow Him to take over.
Today, pray for God to strengthen your spirit and to take control of your emotions and give you self-control. Ask Him to lead you in the direction you need to go to avoid the traps of the enemy. Then go about your day in confidence knowing you are covered and that no matter what you face, you have a God who has your back and walks with you.
5 My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. 6 He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. 7 In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God. 8 Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. (Psalm 62:5-8)
Father God, be with me today as I begin a new day that you have graciously provided. Take control of my emotions and grant me self-control, which is a Fruit of the Spirit, and help me to face any problems or difficulties with wisdom, discernment and love. Keep me at peace when war breaks out around me, knowing you are in control. Keep my mind clear of distractions that may lead me in another direction that may not good for me, and help me to keep my eyes focused on You. Guide my feet and keep them firmly on the path that you have me on. Lord, thank you for always loving me and caring for me. Today, I lay down any concerns and worries at the foot of your throne and ask that you grant me peace. In Jesus name I pray…Amen.
