What’s nesting in your hair?



THE STORY OF JESUS: Proverbs 77
“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember…” (Psalm 77:11)
Asaph was struggling through something terrible.
He was desperate for help, yet his mind was plagued by doubts.
Satan loves to torment us in tough times, adding his lies to the mix.
The mind becomes a battleground, one that can be overwhelming.
But Asaph makes a decision (v.10), he chooses to remember.
He forces his mind to meditate how God has helped in the past.
What do you dwell on when you are going through a difficult time?
When Satan inserts his poisonous thoughts, do you help by adding your own?
Or do you resist the devil (like Jesus) by chasing away the lies with truth?
‘You can’t stop the birds of sorrow from landing on your head…
But you can stop them from building a nest in your hair.’
I know how negative thoughts come whether I want them or not.
But I can choose whether I will let them take root in my hair.
“I will consider and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” (Psalm 77:12)
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
PRAYER
Lord, my mind is a battleground. Help me not to stand idly by while Satan lobs his doubt and despair bombs at me. Help me to set my mind on You, and to let thoughts of You build a nest in my hair!

  1. God is faithful.
    Amidst our trouble and sorrow, my God is there if I only have the eyes that see.
    Even in the lightning of the storm, the earth trembles. My God is a mighty God.
    Even upon the waters, His footprints are not seen. But as like His disciples struggling the storms, He was there walking upon the waters. He can quiet the storm. Also my storms.
    As You led Your people in past days Lord, lead me and guide me daily by Your Spirit. Help me to feel Your presence, even amidst the storm.

    I am weak and I need Thy strength and power,
    To help me over my weakest hour.
    Let me through the darkness Thy face to see,
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Chorus
    Lead me, guide me along the way,
    For if you lead me I cannot stray.
    Lord, let me walk each day with Thee.
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Verse 2
    Help me tread in the paths of righteousness.
    Be my aid when Satan and sin oppress.
    I am putting all my trust in Thee:
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.

    Verse 3
    I am lost if you take your hand from me,
    I am blind without Thy light to see.
    Lord just always let me thy servant be,
    Lead me, oh Lord lead me.
