When hard days arrive, I am learning to fight through His way, and to extend myself some grace.
🌿I start with worship:
“I Lift My Eyes Up” @briandoerksen
🌿I turn to the Word:
“I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
🌿I claim His promises I find within:
“He won’t let you stumble, your Guardian God won’t fall asleep. Not on your life! Israel’s Guardian will never doze or sleep.
God’s your Guardian, right at your side to protect you—Shielding you from sunstroke, sheltering you from moonstroke.
God guards you from every evil, He guards your very life. He guards you when you leave and when you return, He guards you now, He guards you always.”
🌿I pray in His Presence, starting off with a few lines from with the worship song, or the Word:
“Oh how I need You, Lord. You are my only hope, You’re my only prayer. So I will wait for You to come and rescue me, come and give Me life.”
Thank You God that You are larger than what I face, and more than enough to equip me with all I need as I stand with You. You are both my shield and my rear guard, above and all around me, as close as the air I breathe. Not only are You my Protector & constant Presence, but You are my Provider. You give me the life giving Bread & Water I need as well as the strength to face the day. You provide a way out when sin comes calling, and empower me to uproot lies and replace them with Truth. Thank You for this new day, and for being my Guide to help me navigate my way through what it holds. Abba Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, I thank You. Amen.
