Some Days We Feel Helpless – Today’s
Dear Heavenly Father,
Some days we feel helpless–helpless over the state of our marriage, our finances, our employment, our health, our family, and our friendships.
It’s during those times that we realize we can’t control our surroundings. We need You, Father, we need Christ, and the power of Your Holy Spirit working within us.
Without You we are helpless, but with You we’re triumphant!
You give us beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
Empty us of our sorrow, our fear, and our doubt, so that we might be filled with power and praise.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
Bible Verse of the Day
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. – Isaiah 61:1-3, KJV
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour. – Isaiah 61:1-3, NIV
