PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Psalm 16
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“The Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.” (Psalm 16:7)
Do you talk through your struggles or challenges with the Lord?
David is wrestling with God in the middle of a crisis, and he senses the Lord’s help.
My experience is the same as David’s, talking troubles through with the Lord.
For me either journaling or walking will do; when I do, the Lord counsels me.
The Voice of the Lord instructs me in my heart and mind as I walk and talk it out.
It is not instant – pray and be better – but its consistent.
By the end of my walk, nothing may have changed, but my mind is in a better place.
I have a better sense of what is true, and of what I need to do.
I’ve done this for years (since I began in ministry), so it comes naturally now.
This is how God speaks to me, maybe you have other ways of receiving God’s guidance.
We were never promised an easy journey, but a constant companion and a certain homecoming.
Why struggle alone; God does not remove the struggles, but He can put them in their place.
Take time to walk and talk things through with God…
He will make known to you the path of life, and fill you with joy in is presence!
Lord, thank You for the years of walking and talking with me through my own unique struggles. I am weak, but You are strong; together we make a great team.
