A Prayer of Salvation for My Troubles
By Tiffany Thibault
“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.” - Isaiah 12:2
As Christians, we love the word “salvation.” This word promises us hope, separates us from our sins, offers us a new life, and promises us an eternity in heaven with our God. We love to share our personal salvation story because we love God, and we want to share with others how Jesus died and how He saved us from our sins.
Though we will spend eternity in Heaven with the Lord, we still have many days left to live here on this earth. There will be struggles and there will be problems. Situations will arise that fill us with fear and overwhelm us. It is in those hard times that we must remind ourselves that God is our salvation.
We do not need to be afraid. We can absolutely trust Him. He has been with us through those difficult situations before, and He will most certainly move again in our new problems.
It is in Him that we can find the strength to face these hard things. He saved us. He provides a way through. We can keep our eyes on Him, trusting Him in everything that we face. He promises repeatedly all throughout Scripture that “I will never leave you.” He is always at work in our lives and in the lives of those around us.
It is as we keep our eyes on the Lord, trusting Him, and seeking Him in our hard times that we will find joy. As we trust Him, we remember who He is and how He has helped us in our past. As we sing about the goodness of the Lord, our faith grows, our trust grows, and our joy grows.
As we focus on the Lord being our strength and our song, we begin to see how He is our salvation in every situation. He saved our souls once, and He loves us so much that He wants to save us from the hard things that we are walking through. We CAN seek Him as we trust Him to save us in this situation. He will become our salvation once again, and our testimony will continue to grow so that we can share how God is always working in our lives. Maybe it's that fresh testimony that will turn someone’s life around as they, too want to follow this amazing God who is alive and involved in the lives of those who love Him.
Thank you that you are my salvation. In you, I put all my trust. You are here with me, and because I know that truth, I do not need to be afraid of the troubles that are surrounding me, trying to steal my peace and weaken my trust in you. You are my strength. You are my song. You are my salvation. I trust you with my life. I will keep my eyes on you, trusting you. I love you, Lord.
In your name, I pray Jesus, Amen
