Lord, Please Get Me Through This


Today, I’m sitting in my office, preparing for church, and I’ve got a headache, I’m feeling queasy, and I am not sure how I’m going to get through today. I’m not sure if it’s exhaustion or something else. Yet, I know there’s a calling I have and I’m desiring to fulfill. Oh, that it happened on a Sunday Morning! And so my prayer is “Lord, please get me through this.” And really, whether in sickness or in health, in exhaustion or in energy, that is always my prayer. Whether the weather is foul or fair, my rally cry is “Lord, please get me through this.” I want to depend on Christ in any and all situations.

 

Loved ones, do you call on God fervently when things are going well, or just when things are looking dark? He wants us to be close and dependent on Him always. Seek Him first, before all else, before money, clothing, food, shelter, anything. He is our helper. He is our shield and strength in times of trouble. I look my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from?

 


Psalm 27

 

The Lord is my light and my salvation;

    whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life;

    of whom shall I be afraid?

 

When evildoers assail me

    to eat up my flesh,

my adversaries and foes,

    it is they who stumble and fall.

 

Though an army encamp against me,

    my heart shall not fear;

though war arise against me,

    yet I will be confident.

 

One thing have I asked of the Lord,

    that will I seek after:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

    all the days of my life,

to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord

    and to inquire in his temple.

 

For he will hide me in his shelter

    in the day of trouble;

he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;

    he will lift me high upon a rock.

 

And now my head shall be lifted up

    above my enemies all around me,

and I will offer in his tent

    sacrifices with shouts of joy;

I will sing and make melody to the Lord.

 

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;

    be gracious to me and answer me!

You have said, “Seek my face.”

My heart says to you,

    “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”

     Hide not your face from me.

Turn not your servant away in anger,

    O you who have been my help.

Cast me not off; forsake me not,

    O God of my salvation!

For my father and my mother have forsaken me,

    but the Lord will take me in.

 

Teach me your way, O Lord,

    and lead me on a level path

    because of my enemies.

Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;

    for false witnesses have risen against me,

    and they breathe out violence.

 

I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord

    in the land of the living!

Wait for the Lord;

    be strong, and let your heart take courage;

    wait for the Lord!

 

Psalm 54

 

O God, save me by your name,

    and vindicate me by your might.

O God, hear my prayer;

    give ear to the words of my mouth.

 

For strangers have risen against me;

    ruthless men seek my life;

    they do not set God before themselves. Selah

 

Behold, God is my helper;

    the Lord is the upholder of my life.

He will return the evil to my enemies;

    in your faithfulness put an end to them.

 

With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you;

    I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good.

For he has delivered me from every trouble,

    and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
