Lunch Bite

I am weary with my moaning; every night I flood my bed with tears; I drench my couch with my weeping. My eye wastes away because of grief; it grows weak because of all my foes. Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the Lord has heard the sound of my weeping. The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord accepts my prayer.” (Psalm 6:6–9)

Often it can seem that our prayers in the midst of life’s most difficult times are not accepted. Why are all the tears needed? In these times we find the greatest power of faith. Trusting God you say to your troubles depart from me, yes even when the troubles are real and physical threats. Turning to the unseen power of God in faith realizing that the things unseen are more powerful and more real than the things seen.

“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

In faith then we can say “The Lord accepts my prayer.”

P.S. yesterday we fasted. In fasting our true hunger and need comes forth.
