Live A Life Of Peace

Psalm 143:7-8 New Living Translation (NLT)

Come quickly, Lord, and answer me,
    for my depression deepens.
Don’t turn away from me,
    or I will die.

Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning,
    for I am trusting you.
Show me where to walk,
    for I give myself to you.

Hurry with your answer, God!
I’m nearly at the end of my rope.
Don’t turn away; don’t ignore me!
That would be certain death.
If you wake me each morning with the sound of your loving voice,
I’ll go to sleep each night trusting in you.
Point out the road I must travel;
I’m all ears, all eyes before you.
Save me from my enemies, God—
you’re my only hope!
Teach me how to live to please you,
because you’re my God.
Lead me by your blessed Spirit
into cleared and level pastureland.

When we are down in our darkest moments and depressed we run to God in desperation we tend to expect an answer immediately and think we’re being ignored when we are in depressed desperate situations we don’t think we just get distressed and anguished and get demanding where we expect an immediate answer. We demand that he not leave us or ignore us. Some of us become hopeless and suicidal. Rather we should listen for his voice knowing his unfailing love he shows us and has for each and every one of us and look forward to waking each day knowing he still remains with us and that we got to awake another day and are alive and goto sleep with knowledge that we can confide in him and put all our trust in him. Knowing that times like these are hard and we get deep in the darkness and become depressed instead of demanding him to be there and answer us we should be praying and ask him to help pull you through and give you guidance and practice our full trust in him. We should turn to him in every situation not just the deepest darkest ones. We must open our ears and see with our eyes being observant for his answers. We should ask him for deliverance from those who attack us and rise against us. Confessing to ourselves and him that he is our hope, our only hope. Ask him to help you live in a God pleasing spiritual journey and show you how. There is only one true God ask him to lead you by the spirit so that you don’t demand of him, or thrash out at him but instead ask him for the help you need. Opening your narrow path into astonishing possibilities and journey’s and await his full answer. Don’t come at him and attack him live a life of peace by following and asking for his lead. Trust in him. Humbling yourself in God.
