Could you possibly be in the middle of a problem, a storm, a battle or a fight? The normal response is avoidance or to do nothing at all. Well, this normal response will prolong your unrest, your anxiety and even the stress caused by what’s landed in your world.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Scripture says that you might find yourself in a valley of the shadow of death, in other words a bad situation. Notice that it says “though I walk” and it doesn’t read though I sit, stand or am still in the valley. The key is keep moving and as you move you’ll see that comfort from the situation is just a few steps, actions away.
Lord, help me take the steps necessary to get me through the valley I find myself in. I’m in a fight and choose to fight but with Your help. As I walk through these challenges I take comfort that You are with me and my time in this battle is shorter than if I did nothing at all, in Jesus’ name.
Your Action (What action based on your prayer can you take?):
Here are two decisions one should make when you find yourself in a place of unwanted changes:
- Decide not to stay in a battle.
- Decide you must fight to get to a place of restored peace.
