‘Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power…’ (Ephesians 6:10)

How often do we try to do things in our own way and in our own strength? Look to the Lord and He will guide you in all things.

‘Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need…’ (Hebrews 4:16)

How often do we feel that we are either witnessing or caught in the middle of what we would think of as an impossible situation and feel there is nothing at all we can do to affect the outcome? We have faith and we believe, and yes, we pray, yet still we feel so helpless. Why is this? Perhaps the answer lies in how we pray. Do we pray in expectation of a certain outcome and when that doesn’t happen we begin to question why we prayed in the first place? Or do we perhaps pray half-heartedly – not really expecting anything to happen anyway?

Prayer is one of the most powerful resources we have in our Christian faith, however, there are a couple of things we need to remember. Our prayers will not always be answered in the way we expect or hope them to be, nor will the fact that we are praying about a given situation suddenly result in that situation ‘disappearing’. But perhaps more importantly, when we come to prayer we need to do so with boldness, with conviction – with faith – knowing that God will hear and will answer. Perhaps not in the way we would want – but if we hold on to that faith, in a way which will reassure us that He is with us every step of the way.

‘…The Lord is faithful in all his words and gracious in all His deeds…'(Psalm 145:13)

In a world where so many things happen that might cause us to doubt and ask questions of why things are the way they are, let us never forget these words of the Psalmist – in them we can find strength, comfort and peace, not matter what life throws at us.

‘…my eyes are turned towards you, O God, my Lord; in You I seek refuge…'(Psalm 141:8)

Is the Lord our first port of call in time of need or crisis? Do we seek refuge in Him at all times? Or do we only come to Him when all else has failed? Let’s reflect on these words from the Psalmist and come to the Lord asking that He would give us the faith to do as the Psalmist says.

‘The Lord says, I will guide you…’ (Psalm 32:8)

Do we allow the Lord to guide us in our life each day, to help us through all the barriers and obstacles that we encounter? If not, maybe now is the time to do so. Look to Him and by His Spirit He will help you through all you face each day.

‘…wait for the Lord and He will help you…’ (Proverbs 20:22)

How often we rush into things without first coming to the Lord and then wonder why these things don’t always go to plan. This proverb tells us to the Lord and put our trust in Him and He will help us. So come to Him now, with all your concerns and fears, and He will be there with you.

‘The name of the Lord is a strong tower…’ (Proverbs 18:10)

How often do we call on the name of the Lord as we live our busy lives each day? In this proverb we are reminded of what we have in His name. So call on Him now and bring to Him all that is in your heart and know His strength in your life today.
