Psalm 77:19-20 – Your way was through the sea, your path through the great waters, yet your footprints were unseen. You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.
Lord God, there are so many dangers all around me. There are so many things that cause my heart to tremble and shake, things both great and small. At times, I feel overwhelmed by the tasks in front of me like Moses was. At times I feel frustrated in my calling as Moses became with the people of Israel. At times I feel angry at you and at others because things aren’t going the way I want them too. At other times I feel absolutely confident. It’s like a roller coaster! But God, you are constant in my life even I can’t see you. You are constantly by my side even I don’t see you walking by me. You are constantly guarding and guiding me even if I don’t sense your presence. You are the reason I can stand up and live with confidence. Help me put this verse in my heart and my mind when I grow frustrated, overwhelmed, scared and scared. Help me to remember it’s truth: You are always on my side even when I can’t see it. And by this truth, then, set my heart at rest remembering your powerful words: “Be still. Don’t be afraid. The LORD will fight for you.” Amen.
