My Prayer for Today

Why is it that I feel like satan is never far away and just when I think there might be a little normalcy around the next corner, he jumps on my back? I feel like I can't get away from him. It is almost like the nightmare where you are trying to run away from an enemy and you just run in place never getting ahead.
Today, I hate tears! They make me feel weak right now. I hate them, but they are always there... I know I've said before that tears are healing and sometimes they are...just not today.  I need to be strong right now and I just cannot muster the strength I need.
Just like God knows our weaknesses, so does satan. He plays on them and messes with our emotions.

Psalm 27
1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
3Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
7Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.
9Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
10When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.
11Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

Much love,

  4. I know how you feel. It stinks that Satan never takes a day off, and that even when we are struggling with something difficult he still will get to us. But I love the scriptures you quoted. Hold tight to those words of comfort and peace. They will get you through.
