Wednesday, September 21 — Psalm 108:6–13
1 Samuel 13; John 1:43–51
When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who watch over my way. Psalm 142:3 (NIV)
Blessed be the God who consoles us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to console those who are in any affliction with the consolation with which we ourselves are consoled by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3–4
Omnipotent God, why do we wait so long to turn to you? Remind us that you are watching when we suffer physical weakness. You are aware of our spiritual struggles. You see our failures and know our disappointments and our sadness. But when we lean on your strong shoulders, you both console us and equip us to offer that same loving care to others. Amen.
