Marching Orders on Dark Days
Lord I read Your promises…I believe Your words…
A bruised reed He will not break Mt. 12:20
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit – a shattered heart placed before You – these You will not despise. Ps 51:17
He heals the wounds of every shattered heart – binds up their broken hearts. Ps 147:3
I’ll go after the lost, I’ll collect the strays, I’ll doctor the injured, I’ll build up the weak ones and oversee the strong ones so they’re not exploited. Ezek 34:16
So be made strong even in your weakness by lifting up your tired hands in prayer and worship…strengthen your weak knees for as you keep walking forward on God’s paths as all your stumbling ways will be divinely healed. Heb 12:12-13
God is here, right here…He’s on His way…He will save you. Isa 35:4
Promises made…promises kept.
Be still , and know that I am God. Step out of the traffic! Take a long loving look at Me, your High God, above politics, above everything. Ps 46:10
Keep your mouth shut and let your heart do the talking. Isa 30:15
Let me sit in Your stillness and soak in Your love and dwell in Your words of promise.
The comfort we are so desperate for, especially in times of suffering, is not found in answers. It is found in the abiding presence of God.
Don’t stop marching on.
