Re: Daily Devotional; formerly Chaplains Corner
Amen on getting our focus out of our own problems. God did that with a very burned out, exhausted Elijah in 1 Kings 19. God gave him a new assignment.
I also like Psalm 40. Here are the first 4 verses...
1. I waited patiently for the Lord;
he inclined to me and heard my cry.
2 He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
making my steps secure.
3 He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the Lord.
