You feel like you are stuck in quicksand; you can't pull yourself out of the miry clay. You've lost the momentum to put one foot in front of the other. Call out to Me! I am here to rescue, deliver and set free! I am your constant companion, always by your side. If you ask Me, I will tell you the paths to avoid so you will not fall into the pit in the first place. Keep your eyes focused on your Beloved. Lock eyes with Me. Then everything else will diminish in magnitude and melt away in comparison with the Almighty.
Do not believe that you must have all your ducks in a row before you can approach the King of the cosmos. Did I not send My Son as one to model meekness and humility? I wanted you to see Me as I am. I am righteous and holy, but I am also willing to stoop low to meet you. What other king do you know that would do this? For My love is like no other. No one can compare to Me. Stop striving as it will only make you sink deeper into despair. Call out to Me, My child, and I will pull you out and clean you up. No other can save you. No other can set you free.
Psalm 34:1-7 The Passion Translation (TPT)
1 Lord! I’m bursting with joy over what you’ve done for me! My lips are full of perpetual praise.
2 I’m boasting of you and all your works, so let all who are discouraged take heart.
3 Join me, everyone! Let’s praise the Lord together. Let’s make him famous! Let’s make his name glorious to all.
4 Listen to my testimony: I cried to God in my distress and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears!
5 Gaze upon him, join your life with his, and joy will come. Your faces will glisten with glory. You’ll never wear that shame-face again.
6 When I had nothing, desperate and defeated, I cried out to the Lord and he heard me, bringing his miracle-deliverance when I needed it most.
7 The angel of the Lord stooped down to listen as I prayed, encircling me, empowering me, and showing me how to escape. He will do this for everyone who fears God.
