The Upper Room Devotional for 2nd January 2023

This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. – Psalm 34:6 (NIV)

I was going through a difficult time in my life which often made me feel hopeless and afraid. I was ashamed of my feelings because I thought that as a Christian, I should have a better response to my problems. Amid my hopelessness and fear, I was reminded of the words of David and the other authors of the psalms. Their words are honest and heartfelt, and meditating on the Psalms has helped me to be more honest with God about my feelings.

God desires a deeper relationship with us, and through our relationship with God we are comforted and encouraged to keep going. God is our refuge.

Though our problems may be overwhelming and beyond our control, we can rest assured that the God of Jacob is with us. As we read in Psalm 46, we need only to be still and acknowledge God’s power and presence.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Lord God, you know the problems we are going through. Help us to share our feelings honestly with you, our safe place. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
Those facing difficult situations
