I’m feeling terrible—I couldn’t feel worse! Get me on my feet again. You promised, remember? When I told my story, you responded; train me well in your deep wisdom. Help me understand these things inside and out so I can ponder your miracle-wonders. My sad life’s dilapidated, a falling-down barn; build me up again by your Word. Barricade the road that goes Nowhere; grace me with your clear revelation. I choose the true road to Somewhere, I post your road signs at every curve and corner. I grasp and cling to whatever you tell me; God, don’t let me down! I’ll run the course you lay out for me if you’ll just show me how.

 

Amen.

Psalm 119:30 MSG

 

Praying Off the Page: God is a promise-keeping God. Remember a time when God kept a promise to you. If you cannot quickly recall something, read 1 Kings 8. God will not let you down. He always keeps his promises.
