Perfect Concern

What are you facing today?

A spiritual problem? An emotional concern? A physical ailment? A wounded heart? A broken relationship? An uncertain future? An unconfessed sin? The bondage of addiction?

It may be your own insecurity. A fear of failure. Maybe you're a victim to the result of someone else's choices. It could be a diagnosis that has rocked your world. It might be a decision that has changed everything. You may not be sure how you're going to face the day and the concern that is staring you square in the eyes... So today let's take His Words to Him in prayer:

"Thank You, God, that You will bring to perfection everything that concerns me." (Psalm 138:8a, Praying God's Word)

You aren't going through anything that God Himself doesn't want to and can't heal, fix, restore and bring to perfection.

Other versions say it like this:

The LORD will work out his plans for my life - NIV
The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me - English Standard
The LORD will do everything for me - God's Word Translation

Oh someone needs to know He's going to do everything for you! Claim His word and this promise for your life!

And here's the rest of this verse:

"Your love, O LORD, endures forever--do not abandon the works of your hands." (Psalm 138:8b)

Things may not be resolved yet. It may take time to heal and recover. You may be forced to "walk through" this. Your world may be falling a part and that may be a part of His plan. Even as He's working things out to fulfill His purpose for your life, He's holding you together during this process. You can trust Him to bring to perfection whatever it is that concerns you, and you can rest in His enduring embrace, the hands that created you, while you wait!

Can You hold me together?
Can Your love reach down this far?
Can You hold me together?
'Cause without You holding my heart
I'm fallin' apart
