Psalm 120:1 “I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to Him, and He answered my prayer.”
When you are facing a trial or challenge, what you want to know when you pray is that God hears you. You want to know that when you bring your petition before Him, that He will answer you.
Facing challenges is part of living in this world. What sets you apart from the rest of the world is you don’t face them alone, you don’t face them in your own strength or with your own wisdom. You have the All-mighty One with you Who lives in you! He promised to never leave you. He said that His strength is made perfect in your weakness, that when you call He will answer. He said He will keep you in peace when you keep your mind on Him. Is there any reason to stay sad when your Heavenly Father promised to take care of you?
“Abba, I need to face my challenges from Your perspective. I need to see them the way You do, with Your attitude and with Your confidence. I am never alone, I cannot stay feeling overwhelmed. I can rest knowing You are good and You are working this for my good. You have made me an overcomer so I will come out of this as an overcomer!! In Jesus’ Name, amen!”
