Day 6

Grace Day



Psalm 23:6

BY She Reads Truth

Use today to pray, rest, and reflect on the Scripture we’ve read this week, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
as long as I live.
—Psalm 23:6

    K- understand how you feel as my father-like uncle passed away suddenly because of heart attack last year. He was a devout Christian and yet the Lord has allowed him to undergo extreme suffering and pain after staying in the ICU for 10 days. God has promised us that His grace is sufficient even in our great traumas and I pray that you can walk out of the pain with His all powerful embrace and comfort!

    God as pursuer…chasing down those He loves. Interesting concept, as usually I see myself as the one pursuing…or not. Often, I feel stagnant…rolling backwards…waiting. Apparently, I don’t need to wait. He is here, at my side, seeing my life, knowing my strengths, weaknesses, and (many) sins. And, yet, He loves me, so He remains.

    Due to a lifetime of seeing confrontations end by someone walking out, I am used to seeing people flee in anger, guilt, apathy…not staying and fighting for who/what they love or believe. It is a change in mindset (mine) to trust one will stay by my side; one I am applying (slowly) at work and home, and, now, with God.

      It’s an interesting dichotomy, right? In the churches and summer camps I attended as a teenager, we were taught to chase hard after God, to wrestle with Him like Jacob, to wait for His presence to show up, for His glory to fall. But I wonder if these are somewhat sacred cows?

      Now I think all our striving to catch hold of him is in vain, when He is chasing after us. He promises to never leave us, to always be with us, that His Spirit is in us. So perhaps what is needed is that we cease striving, stop and rest, and find that He is right there? At this time each year, more than at other times, I seek Him for vision for the year. I press in, but I find Him already there. He is waiting for me to show up and listen.

    K –
    I have been this pit with you! This season of light has been a dark one for me. My mom & brother both passed away around this time of year 4 & 5 years ago and for some reason the grief this year has manifested itself as anxiety & panic about my own mortality and that of those I love. I have been on my face before God for weeks begging Him to take this thorn from me. I’m still here, occasionally panicking about aches and pains (“what if I’m dying!?”) but I’ve found Him in the pit too. No matter my thoughts or feelings He whispers, “I’ve got you and I’m not leaving.” I will pray for you in this time, I know it’s unsettling, and ask that you feel His presence and hear His voice saying, “I’ve got you!”

      “I’ve found Him in the pit too” — thank you for this reminder. Sometimes I start to forget he’s there too and think He is just above, willing to rescue me and pull me out, but I’m alone in the pit. But that’s untrue. He is there alongside me, no matter how many times I fall in the pit. He is still able to save from inside because He is Mighty God!
      I’m praying for us all, Stephanie and K!

    Question: Is anyone else not able to reply under others’ comments? When I click on the reply icon under comments, nothing really happens. I have only been able to make original comments. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

    K– Your confession of fear is heard not only by this community but more importantly by your good Shepherd who is the Lord Jesus. He wants to drive out those fears with his perfect love, so he pursues you with the very faithful love addressed in today’s verse. Though my fears may look different from yours, we have the same Lord and the same Holy Spirit and the same promise of deliverance from our fears through faith in Jesus Christ. I pray through this written word that the perfect love of the Father and of your Shepherd will drive out the fears you are wrestling with. I thank the Lord for granting you courage to bring you heart to us today!

    And I WILL dwell in the house of the Lord ALL the days of my life. I long for that day! I am moved to tears from your responses yesterday knowing you will be praying this morning. This is hard (for me) but I know God is with me. God will be there at 10:30AM. I won’t BUT God will.
