Grievance Box

Lord, help me cast out and surrender all my grievances to You. They have no business hovering above me. I revert to my wrong thinking that I have to stand up for myself when You are in control. But I thank You for showing me in Your Word that Your people also had grievances of their own and worse!

Psalm 74:10 How long, O God, will you allow our enemies to insult you?
Will you let them dishonor your name forever?
11 Why do you hold back your strong right hand?
Unleash your powerful fist and destroy them.
22 Arise, O God, and defend your cause.
Remember how these fools insult you all day long.

Psalm 77:4 You don’t let me sleep.
I am too distressed even to pray!
7 Has the Lord rejected me forever?
Will he never again be kind to me?
8 Is his unfailing love gone forever?
Have his promises permanently failed?
9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?
Has he slammed the door on his compassion?
10 And I said, “This is my fate;
the Most High has turned his hand against me.”

Thank You for showing me that it is part of the journey with You. Thank You for Your assurance that You know what I am going through and that I can cry out to You at all times. Please forgive me for going ahead of You, for much anger and unworthy words. I acknowledge this wickedness that grieves You. I need Your supernatural help to walk in Your Spirit, not in my flesh. Cleanse my heart that I may not sin against You. Please give me a new, clean, pure heart. Transform me so I will be less like me and more like You. Please override my feelings. Fill me with Your Spirit. Help me to crucify my flesh that cries out to be heard and let Jesus instead live His life through me. Apart from You, it is impossible for me but You said that in Jesus I can do all things. I have stumbled but You will enable me to get up. As far as the East is from the West, so far do You move my transgression from me. By faith, I claim that You will align my heart with Yours and give me the mind of Christ, thinking of what matters to Him, not me. Help me live a new life in You again. You in me are my only Hope.

Psalm 77:11 But then I recall all you have done, O Lord;
I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago.
12 They are constantly in my thoughts.
I cannot stop thinking about your mighty works.
