Monday Meditation

O Lord, hear me as I pray; pay attention to my groaning. Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God, for I pray to no one but you. Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:1-3 (NLT) In this text David cries out to God in distress, with an expectation that He would deliver him. Have you ever felt like your enemies were winning and the attack was too great to withstand? Have you ever been overwhelmed by your present situation that it left you groaning and moaning deep within? Well the good news is, God is your very present help in the time of trouble. He hears your prayers and cry for help. As you lay down your burdens before the Lord He will fight your battles. He will give you strength for the journey and hold your enemies at bay. The devices that were designed to take you out, God will use to take you to another level. You will walk in victory.

You will be delivered instead of defeated. You will be blessed instead of banished. You will overcome instead of being overtaken. When you call on the Lord, He will answer you. His eyes are upon you, His ear is inclined towards you and His salvation is promised to you. You will not succumb to the plans of the enemy against you. God will hold you by His mighty right hand. It is the Lord’s plan that will prevail in your life. Have no fear and do not fret. Acknowledge God’s sovereignty in your life and over your situation by shifting your focus from what is before you and center your heart and mind on God in prayer. When you pray wait with a spirit of expectation for God to deliver you.

When you give your burdens and concerns to the Lord, trust and believe that He has you and everything that concerns you in the palm of His hand. He is bigger than your problem and stronger than your adversary. As we meditate on this passage this week, let us remember to have faith in God. There is nothing man can do to you with God on your side. Be encouraged, trust God and keep pressing forward. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
