With every bone in my body I will praise him:
“Lord, who can compare with you?
Who else rescues the helpless from the strong?
Who else protects the helpless and poor from those who rob them?”
11 Malicious witnesses testify against me.
They accuse me of crimes I know nothing about.
12 They repay me evil for good.
I am sick with despair.
Today I write this as a prayer. I know my God is good beyond compare and is like no other. He has been through all the turmoil we can ever go through and more, He walks through our times of testing with us. Now, like no other I have come to a time of testing. The mental fight, or should I say the spiritual fight is bigger than the physical. I sit writing at home because as the psalm says malicious liars have risen up against me and the system seems to big for me to fight against, I can only wait and pray and trust that God will see me through.
Even though I know God is supreme over all there are times when my thoughts turn dark and I have to turn to the Lord to banish these before they take hold. I am walking this very moment, spiritually, mentally, physically in the valley of the shadow of death and when you are in the valley it feels very cold with no way out, but I know the Lord is carrying me back to his fold.
Even young children despise me;
I arise, and they speak against me.
21 “Have pity on me, have pity on me, O you my friends,
For the hand of God has struck me!
If you are going through turmoil and testing, or people are rising against you, have faith that God is with you. Unlike Job, my friends are standing with me, and my family are strong, but that doesn’t stop the maliciousness of sinful people. We may be in an open field with winds raging past, but like this massive oak next to the river ribble, your faith is the strength that will see you through and what makes our strength strong is that God has placed His Holy Spirit inside of each believer, you are the saints of the future and God will not let His Holy Spirit go to waste, the Holy Spirit is praying for each of us even now. If you could spare a prayer for myself and my family today through this time of turmoil then may God bless you today as well.
Dear Lord God, bless anyone who is oppressed today, either mentally, spiritually or physically
and lift them by Your wings and set them in the golden grass vale once again.
Lord help myself and my family at this time.
