Day 8 of Prayer Guide - Confidence for Your Soul

Day Eight
Confidence for Your Soul

Psalm 138:3 On the day I called, You answered me; You made me bold with strength in my soul. (NASB)

It’s silent. I strain my ears and soundlessness echoes back. When the voice comes, I doubt. Are these my thoughts or Your inspiration, God? Uncertainty bounces around inside me. Where it lands, I hurt. Struggling one, come gain confidence for your soul.

Today I Pray for You:

·         That the still voice of God would shatter the silence

·         For boldness to believe You hear God and faith to follow His beckoning

Today You Pray:

God who Speaks, I close my eyes and see You only. In the quiet, Your sweet voice trickles to my heart. I rush into Your arms as Your confidences rushes my soul.

My soul leaps. There is joy in hearing from the One who knows me best and loves me most. The silence has surrendered to the Savior. My soul doubts no more.

  7. I am currently learning to find the joy in just sitting in the silence, waiting for His voice to come. So often, I take control and keep chattering away. But, oh, I know He has words for me. And I know that I can believe and not doubt that it is Him.

  11. whew i always feel so encouraged when I come to this site through SDG.. thank you ! :-) I love the prayer.. I love that God speaks to us.. it blows my mind. I lived in nepal for two years as a missionary and I am blown away that God is alive and real and speaks to us as opposed to all the false gods I saw them offering to that will never speak.

  13. Jenn, thanks for your sweet encouragement. In the camera lens of my mind, I see us both kneeling the altar of our hearts at His feet - side by side in our worship.
