Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God. (Psalm 43:5, ESV)
Do you ever talk to yourself? Sometimes it might sound like this: “Self, what is your problem? Why are you so upset and down?” perhaps it should sound more like this: “Self, God is in absolute control, what is there to worry about. He will take care of everything. Self, you might as well just praise the Lord in the midst of your struggles.” Perhaps you need to give yourself a little pep talk today.
Prayer: Lord, You are my hope and my rock.
