God’s Truth for Trying Times - 5/28/20


We need God’s truth in trying times. Read the Scripture passage, think about what it is saying, then pray; by yourself or with your household. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly (Col. 3:16).


READ: Psalm 55:4-5

“My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me.” (Psalm‬ ‭55:4-5‬)

CONSIDER: Often times our hearts are burdened overwhelmingly. For a Christian trusting in the finished work of Christ, God is with us in our pain. He is with us in our lament. He is with us in our times of greatest need. And like the Psalmist, we can be very honest with him and know that he is with us and his comfort is abundant in Christ.

THINK: What does this declare about God? What are God’s people being called to do? What assurance is given? How does the Word of God transform our hearts and lives and relationships?


PRAY:‬‬ Pray these verses to God as a prayer. Pour out your heart in praise to God. Pray for others. Present needs to Him.
