“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalm 139:23-24 NIV
God helps us examine our lives. As we find courage to recognize WHY we are weak, He fills us with a heart of hope and reminds us what needs to be surrendered.
Anxious thoughts hold us in crevasses of doubt. They rob us from moving past fear. When we’re held too close to the worry of wonder, it’s hard to remember GOD is HERE.
He knows where we need to go. God helps us welcome STRENGTH. He covers the sores of our souls and reminds us to keep on climbing... He takes the burden of our loads and gives us desire to be rescued.
God provides everything we need! We must TRUST the One who gives us the ability to move when we're stuck in the search for PEACE. We must hold on tight and allow ourselves to be carried over mountains. God will ALWAYS help us find shelter in His faithful love.
"The Lord God is my strength. He will give me the speed of a deer and bring me safely over the mountain.” Habakkuk 3:19 TLB
Dear God, thank you for waking us to another day of purpose. We feel the presence of Your mercy and love. Show us how to examine our hearts, surrender the worry of wonder and release what’s holding us in crevasses of doubt. Lift us with Your arms of strength and carry us to solid ground. Help us remember WHY we are never alone when we must climb a mountain. Thank you, Lord. Thank you. Amen
