This morning I am already facing frustration. I am trying to keep a cool head, but it’s hard. I hate that I jumped into other stuff without the chance to do my Bible reading first.
Here’s what I am hearing in Psalm 14 today:
Scripture: Psalm 14:6
You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor,
but the Lord is their refuge.
Those that follow him may get frustrated, but they can and should seek relief from Him.
Perhaps He is suggesting here that I should sit tight, not get upset and focus on Him. All will eventually turn out with His intent in mind. I need to focus on Him and not my irritation.
Lord, I am frustrated this morning. I don’t want to be. I don’t want to be confused and unsettled. I want to be calm and focused on the right things.
I think what you are telling me is not to fixate on my frustration, but, instead to focus on you. Seek out calmness and refuge from You, not from the solving of my dilemmas, just You.
Please help me to do that, Lord. Guide me in hearing You, focusing on You and gaining peace.
You have my best interests at heart. You know the path. It is all going to be okay.
You wouldn’t have brought me here if you didn’t have my back.
I will focus on you. I will do my best to tune out my irritation and fear. It’s going to be okay with you.
In your son’s name I pray,
