Walk with me, Lord, through these evil days

“Even though I walk through the [sunless] valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me.” ~ Psalm 23:4, AMP

“The Lord replied, ‘I will personally go with you, Moses, and I will give you rest—everything will be fine for you.’” ~ Exodus 33:14, NLT

“So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the Lord your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.” ~ Deuteronomy 31:6, NLT

“When you go through deep waters,
    I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
    you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
    you will not be burned up;
    the flames will not consume you.” ~ Isaiah 43:2, NLT

I Know I Need Not Face Uncertain Days Alone

Father, You have promised Your presence will go with me. You have encouraged me, “Be not afraid, neither be dismayed for I, the Lord your God am with you wherever you go.” I trust You to walk with me through these evil days.

Hold my hand, Lord, as I walk through these evil days.

Oh, what joy this brings my heart. To know I don’t need to face my tomorrows alone is more beautiful than words can describe. To know Your hand grips mine makes me brave. There are many uncertainties in today’s world, but You, Lord, are my sure place. You are my very present help in trouble.

All around me is sinking sand. The morals and the standards I have known for almost seventy years have turned gray. There IS no standard of truth. What is evil is now deemed good and what is good is now deemed evil. Only Your Truth is absolute. But evil is trying to stomp out the light of Your Truth.

On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand

Greater are You that is in me, than he that is in the world. Greater are You, Lord, than the enemy who roams about in these evil days seeking whom or what he may devour.

On You, Lord, the solid Rock I stand! You are my shelter, You are my refuge. Hide me beneath the shadow of Your wings until these calamities pass me by. When I pass through the waters I will not drown for You are with me. When I pass through the flames of adversity, I will not be burned, for You lift me high above the danger.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand.

I will not fear these evil days. You have taught me that You are a shield about me — You fully encompass me with Your love. No evil can harm me for You are my defender. Oh, Lord! This knowledge truly strengthens me to be courageous and to not be overwhelmed by anxiety. Open my eyes to see and remember that I am kept in Your love.

You preserve me, Lord. You are the Keeper of my soul. Evil days may be all about me, but You will never leave my side. Your Holy Spirit within me will bring comfort when needed and wisdom when choices must be made.

I’m So Thankful You Walk With Me Through These Evil Days, Lord

Lead me in the paths of righteousness, Lord. May my light burn bright in this darkness to draw others to You.

In the Name of Jesus, I pray,

Amen ~ let it be so
