Uphold me according unto Thy Word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope. Psalm 119:116
Do you feel like you’re in a prison cell of sorts today? Every door shuts in your face? Maybe you’re in a prison of despair and doubt. Perhaps you just heard from the doctor and received a bad report, or are dreading a visit this week. Maybe you’re in a financial prison of debt. Or a domestic prison of abuse. You feel there is no way out.
Paul did much of his writing from a prison cell.
Friend, I want to tell you, there IS a way out for you. God is still on His throne. He hears and answers every prayer.
Victory over your situation is just a prayer away. The circumstances may not change, but your perspective and attitude will change as you begin to pray and praise God. There is no need you and I have that God cannot meet.
Pray this prayer today: “Father, I need You. I need You to forgive me where I have failed You. I need You to change my heart and strengthen my faith so I see my circumstances not as a prison but as a palace—a place from which You are going to work in my life. Change my attitude from dread to joy, from jealousy to contentment, from worry to trust. I love You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”
