Psalm 55:16-18

But I call to God, and the Lord will save me. Evening and morning and at noon I utter my complaint and moan, and he hears my voice. He redeems my soul in safety from the battle that I wage, for many are arrayed against me.

I feel that these three verses provide a simple and cohesive view of the grace that God shows us in our day-to-day lives. I have often found in my personal life that it feels as though God will eventually get tired of hearing me call out for Him, or that I am somehow being too needy in my prayers. Yet reading these verses, it’s clear that He doesn’t care how often we call out to Him, which is a very encouraging thought. The last verse here is particularly impactful for me, because I spend my days in an environment where I am frequently challenged in my faith and my morals. The fact that I can know with certainty that I have a loving Father who will protect and keep my soul in safety, regardless of the battles that I am forced to wage, is a comfort and peace to me.

Lord, I pray that in the days to come that your children would always be reminded and be brought peace through the presence of your overwhelming support. And I pray that as I continue in my walk in the place where you have put me that you would be patient in teaching me that lesson.
