Plea for Grace February 9, 2022

Matthew 26:36, 38-39 ESV – 36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” … 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” 39 And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”

Psalm 119:25, 28 ESV – 25 My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word! … 28 My soul melts away for sorrow; strengthen me according to your word!

Jesus, You not only sovereignly understand sorrow and abandonment — You experienced it . . . and show the perfect example for where to go with the sorrow and pressure and loneliness — straight to the Word, straight to the Father, straight to prayer.

Psalm 119:30-32 ESV – 30 I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your rules before me. 31 I cling to your testimonies, O LORD; let me not be put to shame! 32 I will run in the way of your commandments when you enlarge my heart!

One thought on “Plea for Grace February 9, 2022

  1. Where do I go when there’s nobody else to turn to?
    Who do I turn to when nobody wants to listen?
    Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable?
    I go to the Rock, I know He’s able, I go to the Rock

    I go to The Rock for my salvation
    I go to the stone that the builders rejected
    I run to the mountain and the mountain stands by me
    When the earth all around me is sinking sand
    On Christ, the Solid Rock, I stand
    When I need a shelter, when I need a friend, I go to the Rock

    Where do I hide till the storms have all passed over?
    Who do I run to when the winds of sorrow threaten?
    Is there a refuge in the time of tribulation?
    When my soul needs consolation, I go to the Rock

I want to know what you think!
