In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.
The most important thing you can do to start your day is to spend time with the Lord in prayer. Thank Him for another day of life, praise Him, lay your requests at his feet and invite Him into your day. After spending time with God you can face anything.
When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me.
Sometimes we get too set on having to know the answers. Faith is not about having the answers; it’s about knowing the one who has the answers. Having a relationship with God is what’s important. Just knowing that you can call to Him and He will hear you is more important than the actual answer.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
When you seek the Lord with a sincere heart you will find Him. God hears your prayers and knows yours heart. God promises that if you humble yourself, pray, seek His face, and turn from your wicked ways He will hear you. God loves you and wants to have a personal relationship with you but it’s up to you to seek Him.
I served the Lord with great humility and with tears and in the midst of severe testing (by the plots of my Jewish opponents).
There are times when we will go through something so difficult we cannot see the light of day through our tears and our faith is being severely tested. You might even feel like giving up on God but that’s when you need Him most. Prayer is the most powerful weapon you have. Cry out to God, He hears you and He loves you. Don’t give up instead give it all to God.
For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.
God had been tugging at my heart for many years but I was stubborn and wanted to do things my way. Eventually, I gave in and surrendered my life to God. It was the best decision I ever made. NOW is the right time to give your life to God, now is the right time to heed his call, today is the time to be saved. Don’t put it off until it’s too late.
