Daily Devotional – Fear Not, God Hears You

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Lamentations 3:52-60. Do you want to be heard? In our family, it seems that sometimes we have to scream louder and louder to be heard above the rest of the family members.

“Those who were my enemies without cause
    hunted me like a bird.
53 They tried to end my life in a pit
    and threw stones at me;
54 the waters closed over my head,
    and I thought I was about to perish.

55 I called on your name, Lord,
    from the depths of the pit.
56 You heard my plea: “Do not close your ears
    to my cry for relief.”
57 You came near when I called you,
    and you said, “Do not fear.”

<

58 You, Lord, took up my case;
    you redeemed my life.
59 Lord, you have seen the wrong done to me.
    Uphold my cause!
60 You have seen the depth of their vengeance,
    all their plots against me.”

God hears your pleas.

God has promised to hear and listen to our cries for help. We can call out to God from the tops of mountains or in the deepest valleys of life. No matter the time of day, or day of the year, God is here right now listening out for your cries. Reminding us to not fear!

When God hears our prayers, He is sure to show up with peace, hope, and comfort. God desires to be our superhero and rescue us, but so often, we try to muster the strength ourselves to fight on through. We take on the battles personally, snatching the reigns from God and marching on towards what we believe the solution is.

Our actions and personal plots will only solidify our sin in the situation. Rather than getting what we want and our way, we should rely on God’s vengeance and involvement. Let us give our plans over to God and have Jesus represent us as our defense attorney before the Father.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Jesus, that You hear us crying out for help or singing Your praises. Forgive me for always trying to do things my way and trying to get my way. I place my faith in You and Your plans, knowing that You will bring it all together for Your glory and my good.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
