At the very moment I call out to you, you answered me! You strengthened me deep within my soul and breathed fresh courage into me”. Psalm 138:3 (TPT)
Have you ever had those experiences where you are really needing or wanting something—maybe waiting for a text response, an anticipated delivery, a yes or a no to a question you have asked, and the answer never comes? Or it seems to take forever in the coming? Those times can be trying and stressful as we wait, but beloved one, listen to this…at the very moment you call out to God, there is no waiting—He answers you!
No time delay there, no wondering, worrying, or waiting…just God hearing and answering your prayers. King David was asking for strength and courage, for in the midst of the challenges of life, his soul had grown weary. The battles are sometimes long and it takes all that is within us to make it through. But David knew he would never make it on his own, there was a greater One, God alone, Who was the very source of all He needed.
He worshiped God for Who He was. He acknowledged that this was the very place His help came from, and then he asked for what He needed. In this case, courage and strength for his soul. In response to His cry, God strengthened Him, and God Himself breathed fresh courage into Him.
Dear heart, it is no different for you today. Our souls get weary in the battle, our bodies too. God knows. He remembers our frame and He understands the journey. However, He fully intended that what He did for David, He would do for you.
Ask Him today beloved, don’t ever hold back or be shy. He knows what you have need of before you ask, and as you ask, the very moment you ask, He is there. Expect, believe, and receive—just as David did, relying on God’s living words to him, and His constant and unending love!
He is at work even now, doing great and unsearchable things—even when you cannot see!
Gracious God, so often these are the very things I need—strength and courage—deep within my soul—and for my mind and body too! So today Lord, as David did so long ago, I cry out to You.
Come Holy Spirit of the Living God, strengthen me I pray in my inner most being. Breath fresh life, hope, and courage into my heart. Renew; revive; restore, and with heavenly power and glory, make all things new.
I know You are the same God yesterday, today, and forever, and Your constant love and tender care is always there. Even if I cannot see or feel it today Father God, I know that You have heard, and are answering my prayer.
Your glory is great Lord and You keep every promise You have ever made. I thank You for the promises over my life today. I welcome You to bring them all to pass, as only You can do!
All for Your glory Lord. All because of You!
