In you, Lord my God,
I put my trust.
do not let me be put to shame,
nor let my enemies triumph over me.
No one who hopes in you
will every be put to shame,
but shame will come on those
who are treacherous without cause.
-Psalm 25:1-3, NIVUK
When I was struggling with anxiety and fears, I had some spiritual “war” verses that I had printed out and used as prayers nearly daily. These three verses from Psalm 25, which are attributed to King David, were some of the verses I used to fight fear and anxiety.
They remind us of who is in control. And they are a time-tested and proven method of pouring out our souls to a God who actually does care.
Our deliverance may not always look the way we want it–e.g. I really did not want to be divorced at the time. However, God knows best. He paved a way for me to have a fresh start with Mrs. DM and my favorite munchkin!
Remember, God has promised to always be with us (Hebrews 13:5). It may not feel like it some days. But it is still true.
Cry out to Him!
He is always ready to listen.
