He Knows the Anguish of My Soul

Praying God’s Word Day-By-Day – Beth Moore

Entry for July 8

Whatever the cause of our mourning, Christ can be the lifter of our heads. He can give us beauty instead of ashes.

Help me to call this to mind and therefore always have hope: because of Your great love, I am not consumed, for Your compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. I will say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him” (Lam. 3:22-24).

I will be glad and rejoice in Your love, O God, for You saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul. You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place (Ps. 31:7-8). Hallelujah!

You, eternal God, are my refuge, and underneath are Your everlasting arms. You will drive out my enemy before me, saying, “Destroy him!” (Deut. 33:27).
