DESPAIR

Daily Prayer for July 9th, 2020    

Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank you!! :o)

I had reached the end of myself with overwhelming despair when I turned to you and surrendered. You took me under your wing with a gracious sense of righteousness by faith in Jesus Christ. I felt your comfort. Holy Spirit, help me always keep faith in your goodness; as I dwell in your shelter and rest in your shadow. You are my God in whom I trust. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Romans 7 NIV

Released From the Law, Bound to Christ

7¬†Do you not know, brothers and sisters‚ÄĒfor I am speaking to those who know the law‚ÄĒthat the law has authority over someone only as long as that person lives?¬†2¬†For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him.¬†3¬†So then, if she has sexual relations with another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress.¬†But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress if she marries another man.

4 So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. 5 For when we were in the realm of the flesh, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us, so that we bore fruit for death. 6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.

Psalm 91:1-6 ESV

My Refuge and My Fortress

91 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I¬†trust.‚ÄĚ

3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
