Word of the day: 1 O God, listen to my cry! Hear my prayer! 2 From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety. Psalm 61:1-2 NLT

Do you depend on God? If you do, how do you rely on him? In today’s verses, David wrote this psalm far away from home. He felt away from God, but the one thing we can be thankful for is that God’s goodness is anywhere and not in specific quadrants of the world. David depended on God in his writings and prayer. When we have a situation on our hands, do we look to ourselves to solve our issues? Or do we go to God? Have you realized that going to a trusted friend that believes in God is another way to depend on God? That friend can point you to ways to let God show up in your life, or pray for you to help you depend on God and make his actions work afterward. I know some of you are saying, “Yeah, whatever. Most of what he wants out of us is not matching with scripture.” That’s fine, but I can tell if you are having a hard time because you can’t think straight, I can promise that trusted friend that believes in Jesus, will make sure that your challenges match scripture.
Father, thank you for today. Thank you for our fellowship. I pray for our community. There are trusted friends who believe in you, but others that don’t. I pray for the challenge to come together as a community and those that can’t find the solution to their problem biblically that you can point them to someone that can depend on you. Thank you for your love. In Jesus’ name. Amen!

My name is Darren. I started sharing devotions in June 2019. As one of the ministry leaders at my church. One reason why I started devotions is because of the lack of inspiration and motivation in our lives. It is hard to be encouraged with a lot of negativity going around. I invite you to be encouraged by the word of God. Our struggles can be personal, at the workplace, and the lack of community in our lives. When we go through hard times, we need the word of God. Please read them and be encouraged. I also started a podcast talking about racism and discrimination. Please take a moment to check that out as well. Afternoon Coffee Break with Darren Watts.
