The Word of God is powerful. It is living and active and it can divide soul and spirit (Hebrews 4:12). We can hide the Word of God in our hearts as a way to train ourselves in knowing God’s ways (Psalm 119:11). In 1 Samuel 30:6 we see David choose to “strengthen himself in the Lord” in a moment of distress and we can do these same.
Take some time to go through each verse. Read them out loud. Then take the part of the verse that stands out to you and turn it into a prayer of your own.
