Comfort from God’s Word
Lord Jesus, as you walked this earth your heart ached for those who were hurting. Your compassion and tenderness reached out to lives shattered by sin and sadness. You saw people’s hearts. You saw their fears and their greatest need. Oh, Jesus how I need you to see my heart and my hurt, my sin and my sadness! I feel like you are so far away and I am so alone in my darkness. I feel unworthy of love and can barely lift my heart to think of you. But you are there. I know you are there and I know how desperately I need you. Please Lord, save me – I cannot even grasp the thought of another meaningless day with thoughts that only bring despair. I trust you but I am so weak and empty. In your great mercy, take my hand and renew my spirit. Give me your hope and the light of your truth. Lift my eyes to gaze on your rich grace and unfailing love. Fill my mind with the truths of your Word that speak of your love and undying commitment. Speak the truth of the gospel to my heart – you already died to save me, you could not love me more. My sins are forgiven and new life is mine with Christ. As your child I am filled with rich blessings and treasures that come from your hand. You are my Savior and my God. Keep me in these truths Lord, every moment and every hour. Get me through this day focused on you. You are the refuge and help that I need. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
