Saturday 8th December
Read Psalm 119:25-32
“My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word!... My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word!... I will run in the way of your commandments when you enlarge my heart!” (vv. 25, 28, 32)
When you are struggling deeply through the hardest times in your life, turn to God and find strength in his word!
“My soul clings to the dust…my soul melts away for sorrow”—is that you today? Look what the passage says God will do for you through his word: he will revive you, strengthen you, and enlarge your heart.
When your world falls apart around you, you will be tempted to push God away in anger and become hard toward him. But that is like pushing away medicine when you are sick! God, the Great Physician, wants to come and heal your soul. He will minister to you through his word.
God’s message to you in this passage today is that he has given you his word for just such times as you are facing right now. In his word you will hear his voice in your heart assuring you that he still loves you, helping you to see your valley from a new, higher, more positive perspective, revealing his purposes to you, strengthening and encouraging you, giving you hope.
Why don’t you open your Bible right now and say, “Lord, I need to hear from you.”
