God, Remember Our Need

Open Your Bible

Psalm 23:1-6, Lamentations 3:19-25, Lamentations 3:55-59, Luke 11:3-4, Matthew 6:25-33

Something I love about Scripture is that it’s full of patterns. Today’s readings highlight the patterns of call on and recall. They’re often linked together to instruct us on how to live by the goodness of God practically. What does it mean to call on and recall, though?

When I say “call on,” I mean the act of calling on the Lord. The psalms, Lamentations, and so many Old Testament stories demonstrate how God’s people call on Him.

I called on your name, LORD, from the depths of the pit. You heard my plea. Do not ignore my cry for relief. You came near whenever I called you; you said, “Do not be afraid.” 
—Lamentations 3:55–57

It’s more than a simple prayer. It carries a deep sense of urgency—like a baby spontaneously crying out for milk. Infants have no restraint when it comes to making their needs known. Likewise, we must direct our cries for help and comfort toward our Father because He knows our needs.

Even on the cross, Jesus cried out to the Father to forgive the guilty sinners who put Him there. Whether it was for daily needs amidst intrusive anxiety or in the fight against temptations, Jesus taught that these were the occasions to cry out. And while earthly dads may sometimes be too tired, busy, or impatient to deal with all our requests, God eagerly awaits our cries and anticipates our needs.

Scripture also links calling on God with recalling about God. What does the writer say? 

Because of the LORD’s faithful love, we do not perish, for his mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness! 
—Lamentations 3:22–23

Recalling God’s faithful love and salvation is our safeguard against spiritually going off the rails. I’ve had seasons where I questioned God and thought He failed to act. Then I remembered that I don’t have the whole story, but He does. He has met our greatest need for a Savior; won’t He also deal with our present troubles? 

He has initiated the ultimate rescue plan for us through His Son. He is mindful of us. As sure as the Father joyfully responds to His perfect Son, He does so for those united to Him by faith. We can call on and recall Him because God always remembers us.

    I need to call out more. I also need to recall more. I am not sure what makes this so difficult for me. Lord hear me. Hear my cry. We need your provision.

    1. Linda Fenwick says:

      I agree. I was taught to be strong and self sufficient so it’s really hard to ask for it now and that creates problems for me.

  2. Chris says:

    Beautiful verses to remind me to run to the Father. ❤️

  3. Mary says:

    Praying and will be praying for you, Teresa. May our gracious Heavenly Father put a hedge around your mind, heart, and situation that you will not be kept from going to church. Father, I ask that You go before Teresa and her husband and may You bless them abundantly through their time there. We know that You delight in giving good gifts to Your children. Please bless them with a church community so that they can know You better, as well as be built up and build others for Your glory. Protect them from from the evil one who wants to divide and isolate.

    Happy end-of-the-day birthday, RHONDA J.!

    Prayers for sweet sleep for my sweet sisters. Rest in Him… He will take care of you tonight and also tomorrow. He sees you.

  6. Mercy says:

    Happy birthday RHONDA J❤️❤️. On this special day 2/22⭐, I wish you all the joy, blessing and happiness in the world, you truly deserve it. Thank you for being the salt-of-the-earth type of person that spreads so much love, care and encouragement to our community. Joining our she’s in prayers, especially the difficult ones. The book Lamentations fit in well for moments when life is crushing. Call & Recall – what wisdom and advice for us to keep in our imaginary toolbox… to use when life is hard. By God’s grace. May His burden be light. May the yoke be easy. Be blessed dear sisters.❤️

  7. Teresa Donley says:

    I’ve been touched by several of you mentioning how your adult children walked away from church, and God, during Covid. I have a confession to make…my husband and I also fell out of church during Covid. I’m thankful that God has been close to me through all this time, and I know He is with me. But the loss of community from not being in church is truly hurtful. Part of the problem is that we hadn’t really found a church home when moving here, and then Covid left us without one. I’ve been looking at the websites of various churches near us, and think I’ve found one where we might be able to feel at home. Coincidentally, it is very near our house, and is even where we vote. We are planning to attend for the first time this Sunday. Please pray that Satan will not convince me of a “reason” (excuse) not to go.

  8. Teresa Donley says:

    Once again, I have gained so much from our study and your comments today. I am so grateful to God for this community of women believers who share insights into Scripture, as well as share joys and concerns and prayers.

    Lifting all prayers requests today, including:
    TAMI C – praying that Chela will find relief from her anxiety, and start to live close to God who is the only One who brings true peace. I pray that 911 can no longer cause fear, but remind her that at the end of dialing 911 lies help. I’ve always been struck by 911 standing for both help in an emergency as well as the day of such terror.
    SHARON thank you for your testimony about God calling you back to him after a period of falling away, and your reminder of Psalm 40. I had a period in my life where I fell far from God and my faith. I, too, am so thankful that even though I was running far from Him, He was always with me, waiting for this prodigal to come home.
    MIA FAITH – I can’t imagine the pain you live with due to your son’s suicide. I pray God will wrap you in comfort and give you peace in your heart. I pray for your family’s mental health and the healing and peace from Him. Im thankful His mercies are new each morning.
    MARI V – continuing to pray for you as you test your kindergartners.
    CAROL H – I’m so sorry your son has fallen into drugs and includes your grandson in the situation. I know that your momma and grandma heart break every day this continues. I pray God will move in a mighty way to show your son the damage he is doing, not only to himself, but to his son as well. I pray he will turn to God for the strength to break this cycle and walk closely with the Lord.
    ARLENE – I’m praying with you that your daughter and son-in-law will be drawn back to God after falling away during Covid. I pray He reminds them of the sweetness of a walk with Him.
    KATIE – I’m praying for you and your surgery tomorrow. Mat God remove any anxiety you might be feeling, guide the surgeon’s hands to remove all traces of cancer, and for your recovery to go well.

  9. Donna Wolcott says:

    Hello sisters, a late start today as it’s one of my Meals on Wheels delivery days. May I always remember when doubt creeps in, “I don’t know the rest of the story”. His timing is so much better than mine. Rhonda Happy birthday . Mia may you find peace. Tami prayers for Chela. Terri prayers for son and daughter-in-law that they seek help. Prayers for your granddaughter in the middle. Theresa healing prayers for Arlo, I assume surgery is over. Katie for surgery tomorrow. Blessings Rhonda, Lexi, Allison, Traci, Adrienne, JM, Danielle, Tina (but God ), Cee Gee, Erin, Kris, Mercy, Searching, Erb, Teresa D, Carol, Mari, Cheryl, Kelly, Arlene, Michelle P. I know I’ve missed some, but you are lifted in prayer too.

  10. Teresa Donley says:

    TERRI – my heart goes out to you with the sad situation with your son and daughter-in-law. I pray that God will show them what they’re doing to their daughter, as well as themselves. I pray He will remind them of the time when they were close to Him, serving in church, and walking in the Light. I pray for your breaking heart, that God will give you comfort, knowing He is working even when we don’t see the results yet.

  11. Catherine McVey says:

    Good morning She’s. What wonderful readings today and wonderful comments. It’s always reassuring to know that He’s got us. We have nothing to fear, even though fear is our go-to so often. Praying for each of your needs today. So thankful that even when we don’t, God remembers us. Have a blessed Thursday! Happy birthday Rhonda J.!

  12. Kris says:

    Kristine: You are on my heart today. Father, we pray that the Holy Spirit will give her wisdom to handle all that is going on today. We also pray for wisdom for her daughter’s birthday. We love honoring our children and we love giving them gifts. But, just like You don’t give us everything we ask for, we do not need to feel pressured to give our children what they ask for if they are not ready for it. Give Kristine the boldness to do what’s right and honoring YOU.

    Mia Faith: oh, my heart hurts for you. I haven’t been thru a child suicide, so I don’t know for sure what that feels like, but I can imagine. The guilt, the questions, the self-doubts…unlike any other cause of death. Oh, Good Shepherd, be close to Mia today. Pour Your love on her so she can really feel it. Help her to bring all those burdens to You and process them with You. Give her some relief today. Build her self confidence today. Allow her to feel joy and contentment, knowing You are Lord over all, even over her son’s death.

    There are so many needs, but we all know confidently that God is working in them all. I can’t remember if it was this devotional or another one, but remember we need to keep our eyes on Jesus, focus on His love, His goodness, His provision, His closeness. It doesn’t take the problems away, but it sure helps us cope better when we truly keep our eyes on Him.

    Be blessed, all you girls. The LORD is near, He doesn’t not fail us, He is intimately acquainted with all that’s going on in your lives, lean on Him, let Him be your strength.

  13. Buonberry says:

    Well, dear Rhonda, let me be the first to wish a Very Happy Birthday! I hope you have a day filled with joy, love and many blessings!
    You are a blessing to us Shes- as you share your excitement for the Word and your caring for those around you.
    Enjoy to the fullest!! :-)

  14. Rhonda J. says:

    GM She’s!

    I’m late posting this morning because I have been pondering the scriptures, devotional and comments, thinking upon turning 55 today, and on our powerful jail ministry yesterday…

    So many thoughts! But all to know.. that I am so thankful that I know God, know that my Jesus is my Jesus, and know that the Holy Spirit was given to live in me. All- flows from this. I have everything when I have Him. Glory to God, Hallelujah, and Praise Jesus, I am thankful. Grateful that we are saved by His Grace!! We can have life abundantly! I will keep sharing that message! Thank you Lord.

    Praying for all needs! God sees them all! He smiles when we come together here, love that Cee Gee! I believe He does. I believe He smiled when He saw the 5 of us in a jail room yesterday, pouring out their hearts to Him in their brokenness, singing praises of His power, mercy and grace when they are at our lowest, and sisters holding their hands in love and agreement. We come together here, standing in agreement for the prayer requests, that you hear our cries Lord. Praying for little Arlo, heal is jaw quickly Lord, and give them grace in the healing time. Keep healing Mia Faith’s heart for the loss of her son, that the family will heal and goodness will come. Thank you for all the She’s, our bond and sisters in You. Amen and Amen…

  15. Arlene says:

    The Lamentations 3:19-25 passage has been very close to me in the last couple of years. It’s one I have memorized and have repeated often to draw my memory to God’s faithfulness. “ This I call to mind and therefore have Hope ….”. Hope is at the center of everything, that is the Hope that comes from God alone. When I experience moments of despair it’s always at times when I have lost hope or put my Hope in things that are fleeting. Things of this world are constantly changing and putting our Hope in those things leads us to instability. Our God never changes, putting our Hope in him puts our feet on solid ground.

  16. Arlene says:

    Terri, praying for your son and daughter in law and all of our children and loved ones who stopped going to church during COVID and are now walking far from the Lord. Praying for a new awakening for all of them and that they will come back stronger than before. This is also the case for our daughter and son in law.

  17. Terri says:

    Thank you for your prayers. It touches my heart. Thank you.

  18. Traci Gendron says:

    Tender not ender!

  19. Traci Gendron says:

    Oh how I don’t see answer to my prayers while I’m in a situation. But as I look back I will see that He was there. He was listening. He was answering.

    Lord, thank you. Thank you for being my shepherd. For ender new mercies every morning. For your great faithfulness.

  20. Carol H says:

    Terri, I will be praying for your son & daughter-in-law. I do not post much either but read the posts and pray for the requests mentioned. I, too, have a son in the throes of drug addiction with a grandson involved. There are so many families out there that are suffering with addicted loved ones. God sees them and hears their call, we pray that he will heal them.

  21. Cee Gee says:

    JULIA C – Love the ‘breakdown’ and prayer! ❤

  22. Cee Gee says:

    Beautiful and familiar Scriptures today, as SEARCHING said. ❤
    I, like some of you, used to feel anxious about many things. I saw many scary things as a child – my uncle had a wrecker service and he lived down the road from us so we often saw cars that he picked up and heard some tragic stories. That shaped my mind; like MIA FAITH said, if that could happen to them… Now that I am a senior I find it easier to relax and TRUST.

    Again, so thankful for the reminders in Scripture and for all of your personal testimonies. Don’t you know that we bring a smile to God’s face each day with this community of friends?!

    This song came to mind a few days ago and I didn’t share it then. So glad I waited because it fits even more perfectly here.

    by The Hemphills

    Consider the lilies
    They don’t toil or spin
    But there’s not a king with more splendor than them
    Consider the sparrows
    They don’t plant or sow
    But they’re fed by the master who watches them grow
    We have a heavenly father above with eyes full of Mercy
    And a heart full of love
    He really cares when your head is bowed low
    Consider the lilies
    And then you will know
    May I introduce you to this friend of mine
    Who hangs out the stars
    And tells the sun when to shine
    But he’s not too busy to care about you
    We have a heavenly father above
    With eyes full of Mercy and a heart full of love
    He really cares when your head is bowed low
    Consider the lilies
    And then you will know
    Consider the lilies
    And then you will know

    Praying for needs on hearts, specifically little ARLO!

    KRISTINE LOUGHMAN – you were on my heart and in my prayers yesterday. Praying for patience for all you have going on today! ❤

  23. Michelle Patire says:

    @Terri- May God deliver them from their bondage and find their needs aren’t being met. Speaking from experience, I have used drugs as a teenager to find joy… Only to remember afterwards the good feelings they gave me were fleeting. Here, we Shes know God alone satisfies. May they come to their senses. May they see there is no end to pain – truly, only God’s presence and love for us can heal us and give us what we need. God, please have mercy on this couple and give them the way out. Show them that this is not the way they should go. Lord, if they truly know You, they can not continue in this sin. Lord, protect their daughter and help her have wisdom to know that what they are doing is not healthy or good. Lord, lead them to repentance – a heart that longs for You, God, and your fulfilling love. Please deliver them, Jesus, and have mercy. Lord, keep Terri’s mind stayed on you, so she keeps hope alive and believes for victory. You are with them all and can do the impossible. We are asking for that, because nothing is impossible for You. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

    @Tami C- thank you for sharing about Chela. ❤️ I remember praying for her before. Believing what your friend said, that her spirit recognizes the Lord. May her mind and eyes be open to Him, in Jesus’s name.

    @Kimberly Z – ❤️ thank you and God bless you

    @Julia C ❤️ :)

    @Theresa – Speaking peace over Arlo and your family during this surgery. God’s hand and mercy cover you all. ❤️❤️❤️

    God bless all Shes. ❤️

  24. Mari V says:

    Good morning and HAPPY Thursday sweet She’s! This morning instead of commenting right away I read through ALL your comments and of course at the end read Tina’s. SWEET Tina, I echo your words this morning. Its exactly my thoughts to a “T”. “I called on your name, LORD.” Oh…how I remember and recall all those sleepless nights calling out to MY JESUS and I know HE heard me! Even when my circumstances were not changing, I know HE heard my cry. I am strong because HE, My Jesus is strong for me. I am NOTHING without Him. My Jesus gets all the GLORY! Ran out of time and have to get ready for work, BUT I want to say THANK YOU my sweet sweet sisters for praying for me regarding my job and testing these cute, sweet, loving Kindergartners.

  25. Cheryl Blow says:

    Call and recall is such a great way to remember what we need to do in our times of distress. And if God has met our deepest need for a Savior will He not meet our needs? He is faithful even in times when we don’t have all the answers. We have to just keep trusting and coming back to Him in prayer, His word, and praise. Even when it is hard. He is a good Father, our ABBA Father, our Daddy!

    Oh, dear Mia, my prayers are with you that God would comfort you and surround you with His peace and love.

  26. Mia Faith says:

    I am so thankful that even though I can get discouraged and feel alone – He never leaves me. Not ever. I will say that since my son died, I am more prone to anxiety and worry. Basically, I know that if THAT can happen, anything can. No one who knew my son ( a loving dad, great attorney, friends galore, loving son and brother, and mostly a devoted Christian) would ever imagine that he’d take his life. The shock still resonates through all of our lives. However… I’ve grown closer in my walk with the Lord than ever before, so when the anxiety threatens to take over, I call on Him and He is faithful to hold me and remind me of His steadfast love.

    Praying for the requests as always. I’m thankful for this group of She’s and the comfort in seeing the names each day. Friends from afar!

  27. Sharon, Jersey Girl says:

    “We can call on and recall Him because God always remembers us.” Every time I pray, I thank God for my salvation. I can’t help but thank Him, not just for saving me – but for calling me back when I went astray all those many, many, years ago. My psalm of praise is Psalm 40:1-3. I cried out to God in my despair, He heard me & lifted me out of the slimy pit! Thank you God!! My life could have taken such a terrible turn had I not cried out to God, and had He not heard and responded to my cry. I am forever grateful. It also gives me hope that one day my 2 sons will cry out to Him and return to the faith they once knew. God’s love is great, His compassions never fail, they are new every morning…therefore I have hope! (Lamentations 3:21-23)

    @Traci G. – praise the Lord for answer to prayer – and for birth marks!!
    @Theresa – praying all goes well for Arlo’s procedure and that he will have a quick recovery without pain.
    @JM – my heart goes out to you and all the other sisters here who are struggling with infertility. Praying that God will answer, and fill your empty arms with a precious little miracle baby!
    @Adrienne – continued prayers for Sharon and her husband.
    @Katie MeGee – praying God’s peace & protection as you have your surgery tomorrow.
    @Teri – I have no words, just prayers for your son & DIL. May God rescue, redeem, restore.
    @Tami C. – continued prayers for Chela and for 9:11!

    @all my SRT sisters – thank you for all your comments – words of encouragement, hope, praise, & prayers. I try to read them all every day!

    P.S. For those of you who have prayed for my cousin Scott – I reached out to him via text last week and he never responded. I’ll try calling him next.

    Have a blessed Thursday my sweet sisters!

  28. Tami C says:

    Sorry for double post:)
    Terri – praying for your son and daughter in law and declaring them free of bondage to addiction
    Theresa – praying for Arlo
    Kristine – praying for your mama’s heart – you are enough because He is enough (maverick city)
    Adrienne – I too am learning to be leas anxiety ridden
    Praying for other requests as well.
    Great message by Louie Giglio called “A New Mindset for a New way of life” on Romans 8 with a great illustration of who we are in Christ. Have a great Thursday ladies!

  29. Tami C says:

    It is so easy to forget what the Lord has done and how he has carried me through. I have been in a season of “forced remembering” of the promises He has given us for our daughter Chela because I can’t see them yet. Calling on Him from the depths of the pit and recalling His promises are the only things that get me through. I am tired and the season feels soooo long, BUT GOD. He knows my weakness and continues to drop me reminders. Chela is not following the Lord but for years has been seeing the #s 911 at random times. She will look at a clock and say “oh it’s 9:11”. I’ve been praying both Psalms 9:11 and 91:1 over her since she told me. Recently I felt God confirm to pray Psalm 91 over her and as I took a deeper dive into the meaning, I saw it was one of the most well known prayers of protection. Wow! Just last week she came home for a reset and was in a bad way. I was praying next to her and then she says “it’s 9:11”. This has happened several times when I have cried out to God for her is desperation. It’s like he is reminding me “I have Chela. I am protecting her. Don’t worry.” God sees my need as a mother! A friend tells me that although Chela does not recognize the Lord right now, her spirit does. I like to think she is right and that some day she will turn her eyes to Him! So I pray daily that He pours her spirit out on her!

  30. Adrienne says:

    TERRI… indeed we will pray.

    THERESA… I know you will keep us posted.

    Like, JULIA C, I used to worry a lot! I used to talk to one of the girls in Sunday School that also suffered with anxiety. I told her that worry/anxiety was always my greatest sin. It helped her (and me!) to verbalize that. Like Julia said, it was based on a lack of trust, really.

    Nowadays, I feel like I am not as anxiety-ridden as I once was. I know that He loves me and will ALWAYS do what is best for me. I always try to remember too, though, that if He does not answer in the way that I THINK He should that He may be working in me to His glory, and that He has my final destination in mind.

    His love is unceasing, sweet sisters. Remember that.

  31. Erin Lewallen says:

    Julia C. I appreciated your comment today and the breakdown verse by verse of Psalm 23. I’ve not seen that explanation and it really resonated with me. ❤️

  32. Katie Megee says:

    Amen Maria!

    Terri—praying with you

  33. Maria says:

    “Then I remembered that I don’t have the whole story, but He does. He has met our greatest need for a Savior; won’t He also deal with our present troubles?”

    May we always be cognizant of this, Father. Especially when doubt creeps, and we need help with our unbelief born out of worrying.

  34. Terri says:

    Dear sisters in Christ,
    I have rarely posted on here but read the comments every day. Today, I have a request for all of you. We have a son and daughter-in-law who are using drugs and are doing this in front of their daughter. Our hearts are broken; they were serving in church but got out of church during COVID and their lives have spiraled out of control. Please help us pray for this situation. Thank you.

  35. Rachel says:

    Up with you early birds this am (prepping for my first colonoscopy, oh joy, oh rapture :D) and encouraged by all of your comments today! Love the list, JULIA – I will be writing that down to come back to again. So thankful for the hand of God on/in my life, and pray that I will continue to grow in my ability to see it in real time, rather than just hindsight.

  36. Theresa says:

    When in the midst of a challenging situation, my mind wants to focus on what’s wrong here and now, rather than recalling all the ways God has been faithful to me in the past. I’m always afraid that this will be the time I’m left on my own, or this will be the time He will lose his patience with me making the same mistakes over and over again. But that’s not the promise God gives us. He doesn’t say “I will never leave you until I’ve had enough of you.” He promises to be with us forever. To meet our needs. To walk with us. I will be reflecting on that today.

    We will be leaving shortly for Arlo’s surgery. Thank you for the continued prayers!

  37. Julia C says:

    RHONDA J – Praying for you father’s wife and her daughter
    TAMI C – Praise the Lord! I am glad Chela found help and that her counselor is a perfect match.
    LEXI B – Hold on sister, God provides.
    TRACI GENDRON – Praise the Lord!
    KATIE MEGEE – Praying for a successful surgery on Friday
    ADRIENNE – Praying for Sharon and Fred to be save in God’s hands
    JM – Praying for you and your husband “The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the person who seeks him”(Lam. 3:25) ❤️
    THERESA – Praying for a smooth surgery for Arlo
    DANIELLE B – Praying for your shifting relationships and for God to provide new ones that honor Him.
    TINA -“Recalling God’s faithful love and salvation is our safeguard against spiritually going off the rails.” AMEN sister!


    ALEIDA, DANA, MIA FAITH, C. and others… ❤️ Keeping you in my prayers

    LAURA DIANNE, HEIDI, TAYLOR H, VICTORIA E, SARAH D, LEHUA K and others… Missing you ❤️

  38. Kristine Loughman says:

    Exactly what I needed to hear today. I am feeling inadequate. It’s my daughter’s birthday, nothing is planned, she wants social media access for her birthday but I’m trying to hold the line, new carpet gets installed today so the house is a wreck, everyone has appointments after school… it’s SO MUCH. But! The Lord provides. He is everything I need, including a great deep breath and a pause. Visualizing those still waters…

  39. Searching says:

    Today’s Scripture readings were chock full of favorites! I too (KELLY (NEO) and TINA) was drawn to those same words – when we remember all He has done for us (and even things we don’t know about – guidance & protection?), how can we not trust Him to continue?

    Praying for ARLO’s surgery today.

    Reminded of the hymn, Fill my cup, Lord and also of Andrew Ripp’s Fill my cup. In a sermon many years ago, it was said that filling the cup to overflowing was a sign in those times of hospitality and that you were welcomed. Thankful He welcomed us!

  40. Kelly (NEO) says:

    Amen, Beverly Berrus “God eagerly awaits our cries and anticipates our needs….He has met our greatest need for a Savior; won’t He also deal with our present troubles?”

    LEXI B – so nice to see you popping in yesterday. How’s the business going?

    TAMI C – praying Chela has made a turn and will lean into hope. From the He Reads Truth devo today, “Hope can seem senseless, but if we turn to the Lord, we are shown His faithfulness.”

    THERESA – praying that Arlo’s surgery goes smoothly

    JM – ❤️

    ADRIENNE – prayers for Sharon and Fred

  41. Julia C says:

    I used to worry a lot. Maybe not specifically about food and clothes, but certainly about other things I needed or wanted in my life. The many times I read these verses from Matthew 6, I was mainly interested in the second part of verse 33 “…and then all these things will provided for you”. I put myself in the center.

    Later I realized that my worries were because of a lack of trust in God. I didn’t really believe his promises, because I didn’t see any results. I didn’t remember who God was: my Father, my Lord and my Shepherd.

    All because I missed the key: “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness”.
    I was the ‘problem’ and He was the ‘solution’, to say it plain and simple.

    “The Lord is my shepherd, I have what I need.”

    Verse 1: Relationship and supply.
    Verse 2: Rest and refreshment.
    Verse 3: Healing, guidance and purpose.
    Verse 4: Testing, protection, His faithful presence, discipline and comfort.
    Verse 5: Hope, consecration, abundance.
    Verse 6: Blessing, security and eternity.
    (This is another note from my Bible, I think this was one of the comments from another SRT study.)

    Dear Father,
    You know what we need.
    You want to give us what we need.
    Because of Jesus, you can give us what we need.
    Because of Jesus, we have access to You.
    Let us remember that You are ALL we need.
    Let us recall and call on You.

    Recalling God’s faithful love and salvation is our safeguard against spiritually going off the rails. I’ve had seasons where I questioned God and thought He failed to act. Then I remembered that I don’t have the whole story, but He does.

    THIS, right here got to me today! I mean, let’s face it, a lot of My writing here and in My journals are of how God was there in the midst of My woes, troubles, heartache and pain, need. How God was there in My need, and how He provided. How He was graceful in situations I did not see coming..

    I called on your name, LORD, (so many, many, many times), from the depths of my pit. (my hurt, my need my troubles). YOU HEARD MY PLEA..( every time, you never failed me) YOU came near whenever I called you; you said.. ” Do not be afraid. ”

    Agh, My heart hurts to recall the Goodness of God, AFTER the fact.. The sad thing is, I absolutely know the truth, I do, it’s not My default, however..

    BUT GOD..

    Praise God. He, knowing the full story, walks alongside us, ready for the ‘call on’ to act, whether it be providing, comforting, healing, miracles, sending a
    His beloved Son for OUR transgressions.

    He REMEMBERS us every minute of every day.. in love, grace, mercy and faithfulness.

    HE REMEMBERS us. And that is what I will carry with me today..



    My dears, Happy Thursday! So lovingly wrapped in warming hugs and covered in prayers. .❤
