Daily Devotional: August 23, 2023 – Psalm 94:18-19

When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy – Psalm 94:18-19

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

The verse for today, Psalms 94:18-19, is a comforting reminder of the Lord’s steadfast love and comforting presence in our lives. It communicates to us that even when we think we’re losing grip, our Lord is there, keeping us secure. How lovely and reassuring is that thought?

This verse tells us that God’s love is like a powerful support. A strong hand that keeps us standing when we feel like falling. You might have had a rough day at work or have so many responsibilities on your plate that it feels like you’re on the verge of falling apart.

The love of God is like a rock, steady and unshakeable, always there for us to lean on, especially in our weakest moments. Imagine God’s love as a faithful friend extending a hand when you stumble, or as a nurturing parent cradling you when you take a tumble.

And what about those periods when we’re gripped with anxiety? Our verse touches on these moments too. Fears and worries are part of the human condition, but the verse offers a soothing balm. It tells us that God’s reassurance can fan the flames of joy, even amidst layers of worry. Isn’t that something truly extraordinary? Even when our spirits are weighed down with anxiety, God’s tender comfort can still lift us up with authentic joy. Isn’t that breathtakingly beautiful?

My Prayer

Dear Lord, your word is a bright lamp that guides us through the oftentimes dark path of life. Thank you for your unfailing love, a love that stands strong even when we falter. We acknowledge that we have moments when our footing seems unsure, when our hearts are heavy with worry, and we appreciate you being our solid ground, our safe haven.

Today, we ask for ongoing guidance, so that we may always feel your supporting hand, especially during the times when we feel that we’re slipping. Help us to trust in your love and remember that you are always there to catch us.

Also, we ask that you replace our anxiety with your joy. Make us channel your peace, so that we may share the joy and consolation you’ve given us with others. No matter how great anxiety or fear is, remind us of your promise of joy. In Jesus’ name,
