Hasten, O God, to save me;
come quickly, Lord, to help me.
This scripture indicates a cry for help that is needed right away. We need to cry out to God when we are in tempting situations or are frustrated by something. When we are faced with difficulties God is there to help us if we just take the time to ask. I ask God now to please help me remember I don’t have to do life alone. He is there waiting to help me. I don’t have to try to be independent and I should cry out to Him when I am in trouble and He will deliver me.
Trail to the Tree
The scripture reading for today is about Jesus being tempted in the desert. He resisted every temptation with scripture.
Ann says: Father, He was hungry and He ate of the bread of Your Words. Let us too.
He was lured with the glitter of this world and He worshiped You and You alone. Let us too.
He was dared with scripture but He knew all of scripture. Let us too.
He was tempted and He conquered. Let us too.
Because today, please keep us in Him.
When we are being tempted remember Jesus went through it also and conquered it with scripture. Knowing God’s Word is a powerful tool in overcoming the evil temptations we face. Ask God for help and turn to the Bible and see what He has to say for that moment, in that moment. He is our very present help.
