Praying God's Truth Over My Fears

Devotional

Weakened Faith


Maybe you’ve found yourself in a place where you literally have nothing left. Your faith is depleted, your doubts are overwhelming you, you’re fearful about the future, and to make matters worse, you’re beginning to doubt God. You’ve got nothing left to offer others and certainly nothing left for yourself. Attempting to accomplish the most ordinary tasks ushers in an exhaustion that rivals a runner finishing a marathon. The good news is that God’s Word is the perfect place to be built back up again. 


Each day of this Plan will include several prayers based upon the Bible reading for that day. So, whether you fall to your knees crying out, shout as you hike to the top of a mountain, or simply speak softly in the quiet of your heart, make these truths what you stand on. Not only today, but every day. God’s perfect strength is deposited into us when we declare His truth over our lives. 


Today’s Prayer

Lord, when my faith is weak, I'll trust in You. You are faithful and constant, and You’re the same yesterday, today, and forever. I may grow tired and weary, I might even stumble and fall, but I will hope in You and my strength will be renewed. For You give strength to the weary and increase the power of the weak. With Your help, I'll forget what is behind and strain toward what’s ahead. God, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which You have called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. I'm confident that the work You began in me will be completed. No matter what comes my way, Lord, I know that I can do all things with Your perfect strength.
