March 26 Petition Mission

“He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth—praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord” (Ps 40:2-3).

God is not a fair-weather Friend. As far down as you may be, He will be there, just a prayer away. Whatever your circumstances, you can always say, “Underneath are the everlasting arms” (Deut 33:27).

Helen Wodehouse (1880–1964), Mistress of Girton College, Cambridge, insightfully and compassionately wrote, “We think we must climb to a certain height of goodness before we can reach God. But He says not ‘At the end of the end of the way you may find Me’; He says, ‘I am the Way’; I am the road under your feet, the road that begins just as low down as you happen to be. If we are in a hole, the Way begins in a hole. The moment we set our face in the same direction as His, we are walking with God.”

Lord, may many see this and trust You today!
