- Remember an occasion when God did something really good for you. Maybe he healed you, or provided for you, or rescued you, or answered a big prayer. Think about this occasion and savour it with gratitude.
- Read Psalm 18:32-35. Read it prayerfully, slowly and repeatedly, noticing each word.
- Be aware of any word or phrase that catches your attention. Meditate on it. Be aware of any emotions or memories it stirs. Let God’s still small voice speak to you.
- Reflect and respond to this. Dialogue with God. Maybe journal your meditations.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
1 Samuel 30:6 (KJV)
Now David was greatly distressed… but David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.
Psalm 18:32-35 (NIV)
It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights.
He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
You have given me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great.
