O LORD, how my adversaries have increased! Many are rising up against me.
But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head. I was crying to the LORD with my voice, And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
Salvation belongs to the LORD; Your blessing be upon Your people! Selah.
Psalms 3:1, 3-4, 8 NASB
Father I pray for strength and courage to endure and overcome. I pray for discernment to see clearly the intent of those around me, and the direction that You seek for me to take. I choose to be obedient to You and not a pawn for the enemy. To You I praise for all things and all experiences. Amen.
God knows who has set out to attack, diminish, humiliate, and possibly destroy your faith in Him. He knows the end of the story before you realized you were starring in the soap opera. Rather than react to people and circumstances, we must stand strong in prayer and reflection, to hear and respond to God’s voice and not our weak human pride. God balances all things, so let Him do His work on His time.
