A Prayer For Readability and Calm When You’re Feeling Flustered and Annoyed
By Keri Eichberger 

“Your phrase is a lamp for my toes, a light-weight on my path.” – Psalm 119:105

Have you ever ever felt determined for a phrase of knowledge from God? Unsure of what steps to take subsequent or the way to method a particular state of affairs? You could consider with all of your coronary heart that God has each reply you’re in search of and that his Phrase, all 800,000 of them within the Bible, is your biggest go-to for locating pearls of promising steerage. However, contemplating the huge sea of divine pages, you usually end up overwhelmed with what verses to start with or what phrases you would possibly probably apply on a given day at a given crossroads of decisions.

First, let me applaud you in case your preliminary response goes to the Phrase of God for private promptings and assist. Or in case your auto-response is to drop to your knees in prayer when uncertainty and unease inundate you. As a result of his phrases and presence won’t ever fail to be a light-weight to your path.

I, alternatively, haven’t at all times completed both of those. In reality, it took me years to seek the advice of God first on each massive dilemma, and particularly the small choices I felt flustered about. Living proof, early in my marriage, my husband acquired a number of at-work interruptions to counsel my conflicts with our younger children at residence, help my choices over dinner choices, or simply plain assist settle my soul after I felt troubled by drained toddlers. If it wasn’t Mike, my mother can be the recipient of such requests for resolve. Not that there’s something improper with ultimately phoning a Christian buddy for some sound help and sensible counsel.

Who, or what, is your go-to while you’re feeling frazzled or needing recommendation? Is it your mother? Your partner, finest buddy… or is it Jesus?

You recognize, I really feel a bit embarrassed for ever reaching out initially to anybody apart from our solely fixed companion. As a result of Jesus is totally at all times with us. Image it. Not solely is his Phrase available to you, however he’s actually proper beside you, simply ready to assist, to pay attention, to counsel, and lead you. I’m wondering if he’s harm after we kind of ignore him or put up a hand that claims, “I’ll get to you subsequent, or when nobody else solutions.” Wow. Sorry, Lord.

However right here’s what I’ve discovered. Once we do acknowledge his loving presence and talent to assist. Once we acknowledge him, look to him. That’s after we lastly discover the calm and readability we’ve been after from the second we started to spiral right into a fluster of confusion over how to answer our newest concern.

When readability is what you’re in search of, can I remind us each to pause and search God. Search him and his Phrase first in all issues, and look and see all of the issues he’ll do. Philippians 4:6-7 reminds us to current our requests to God and that his peace will then guard our hearts. He completely loves to present us that peace and a way of calm after we convey our struggles to him.

I do know all of us wish to be 100% assured in our choices. And at occasions, it may be tough to discern God‘s definitive path amidst the muddle and chaos of our days. However if you’re in him and in his Phrase, I wish to encourage you with one thing… As you’re actually in him, you may belief that he’s main and lighting your path. You may belief the trail, whichever one you select. And you may relaxation there in his calming peace. As a result of he introduced you the place you’re, and he received’t ever cease strolling with you as you stay in him. You may belief him and his plans, and that they may at all times prevail for these of us in Christ Jesus. (Romans 8:28) And that’s you, expensive youngster of God.

Let’s pray:

Heavenly Father, Your Phrase is a guiding lamp on our path. You are a continuing shiny mild alongside my total life’s path. As I lean on you, and linger with you, you lead me and direct me. I’m so grateful to your steerage that’s at all times out there. Please forgive me for after I overlook that you’re a great counselor. That you’re the finest counselor. I wish to make you first and to hunt you first. Lord, I do know you’ll by no means fail, that your phrase won’t ever fail. Assist me hearken to your voice above all voices. I pray that I could fall increasingly in love with you and your Phrase, and look increasingly to you and your truths. Your guarantees and provisions supply readability and a chilled peace. I lengthy for this peace. And Lord, you give it so freely, alongside together with your wealthy knowledge, each time I come to you. My arms and coronary heart are open to obtain your path. Assist me belief wherever you lead. Assist me be assured that you’ll certainly be with me each step of the best way irrespective of the place I’m going. Thanks to your love, thanks to your ever-so-steady serving to hand that by no means fails. In Your Son’s highly effective identify, Amen.
