Why do the godless folk conduct themselves more honorably than those chosen by God? How can we let fear, dread, pessimism have a greater influence on us than the Word of the Lord and our history with Him.
Lord God, help me to seriously and viably take You at Your Word. Please help me let You frame and filter all of my life, my children's lives and those in my circle of influence. Keep me from walking in response to fear, planning with consideration of terror and expecting the influence of anxiety. May I respond to You, plan according to Your direction and expect You. May I be strong and courageous, true and honest, faithful and obedient to the praise of Your Name!
