He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord! Trust in the Lord God always, for in the Lord Jehovah is your everlasting strength”. Isaiah 26:3-4 (TLB)
We all know what those “running on empty” times are like, below empty really, with nothing to give, and no reserves to draw from. Those moments, caused by overwhelming circumstances or difficult demands, seek to sink us. And they can. Except for a higher truth. The truth that says, trust in God, He has you! The circumstance and the situations that weight so heavily on you, all held firmly in His grip of grace, and He won’t let go!
Don’t look down to the muck and mire that wants to pull you under. Look up instead to the One Who has already saved you! He is your salvation and your song. He is your everlasting strength, your source—the substance of all you need—in endless supply.
Surrender it all to Him dear one. He knows. Then turn those troubled thoughts to trust instead. Lean into with all your heart, and lean on, the One Who is faithful, true. The One 100% committed to caring for you!
Psalm 68 says, that it is You Lord Who marched in front of Your people, leading them through the wasteland—the God of highest power and glory.
I look to You today, Lord, to lead me through the wastelands of my life—spirit, soul, and body. Lead me fully onto Your paths of peace, so that I may sit at Your banquet of blessings, dwelling always in the shelter of Your love.
Thank You Jesus that You care for me in all the ways You do. Thank You that I can always turn to You.
Abiding in Your faithful love, I pray.
