Prayer for today: Lift me up Lord when the current is strong

When words cannot adequately convey my walk with Christ, I am given pictures.

Sometimes in worship we are called to lift Christ up in our praise, thoughts, and attitudes. But far more than I realize, it’s Christ who is lifting me up. This not only occurs in my times of worship, but in my daily walk of trusting in Christ.

There are times when the rivers of life are overflowing its banks. Worry and anxiety cause a sudden melt of winter snow, and those feelings of being overwhelmed melt down my trust that causes a short-term memory loss. I forget who God is and how He has always taken care of me. It is during these times that He lifts me up out of the flood waters and takes me safely to the other side. Then, life doesn’t seem so overwhelming.

We can go to the Lord in prayer:

“Lord, lift me up when I’m feeling week and helpless. I don’t need to pretend that I’m strong or that I have all the answers. Humble me to that point where I can simply let go and trust my life into your hands. I will take you at your Word. I will rest on your promises. I believe that you are able when the river of life becomes too strong. Thank you Lord, for your grace and mercy. Amen.”

  1. I was reminded as I was reading this that when I am weak, I have a Father that will lift me up. I am glad that the Lord led me to your blog.

  2. Thank you for giving me hope in this dark time. I know God is holding me in the palm of his hand and will see me through this storm. He is like a beacon in the fog. Just when you think you’re boat is going to crash into the rocks, he is the light that guides you home! Thank you Jesus for dying for my sin!

    • Thank you Tiffany. God keeps us in the palm of his hand even when we don’t feel like it. That’s when trust deepens. Holding on to his promises despite what life throws our way. I was reading this morning from Exodus 14. The Egyptian army was about to swarm them, then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.” (v. 15) God’s hand worked through Moses and he miraculously rescued his people. The same hand that parted the Red Sea, is the same hand that is holding you right now. The same hand that is with all believers. Keep remaining in Christ, Tiffany. And thanks for dropping by.

  3. Thanks for the encouragement.I sometimes feel backwards and am not glad but the lord has ministered to me beyond all odds to move forward.That’s who I am in Christ.The power of hell can’t sink me.The waters of life can’t swallow me up.I am simply moving forward and no retreat in Jesus Name.
