Thought for the Day – Day 19 – Giving Up


~Psalm 102:1-2 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee. (1) Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. (2)

Praise the Lord that we are able to go to our Heavenly Father and cry to Him. He stands ready to reach out to us, forgive us if that’s what is needed, and comfort us.

~Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

We have a compassionate Heavenly Father who desires close fellowship with us. He did not just create us to leave us to our own devices. He created us so we could have a relationship with Him – He knows us intimately, like our own earthly parents.

~Psalm 103:13-17 Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him. (13) For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. (14) As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. (15) For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more. (16) But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; (17)

There are times that there’s nothing we can do about our situation except turn it over to the Lord. No amount of worry – no amount of effort on our part will change what’s happening. However, our Father knows all the details and is able to bring us comfort – even if the situation doesn’t change. Our circumstances may not change but our heart does.

~Psalm 121 A Song of degrees. (1) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. (2) My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. (3) He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. (4) Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. (5) The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. (6) The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. (7) The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. (8) The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

It may feel as though we are all alone in the midst of our trial, but you can rest assured that the same God of these verses today is there for you!

    Yes, these verses are a great blessing to me today! The devil wants me to think sometimes that God is hard to talk to but these verses helps me to remember that Satan doesn’t want me to pray and God is always available to me! He even wants to hear from me! Praise the Lord for that!!!
    Thank you Kate! You are such a blessing to me!

    “Our circumstances may not change but our heart does.” How true!!!

    When we give it over to the LORD He will help us THROUGH the fire as we yield ourselves over to His will. GOD is ALWAYS faithful and He is ALWAYS right on time. Amen & Amen!!!
