Guard Against Cynicism

Guard Against Cynicism

The events of this world can cause us to despair. To question what God is doing. To feel helpless. To worry about our safety. About how we will survive. Even to feel abandoned. Amid addressing these concerns, we can be tempted to question God’s goodness ... Word ... dependability. Even to question His existence or His power to make a difference in our circumstances. Cynicism creeps into our thinking. Cynicism based in brokenness, confusion, hurt, and pride. Psalm 119 reminds us to guard our minds as well as our hearts. How can you feed and nourish yourself spiritually?

Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me and teach me your law. – Psalm 119:27-29

Prayer: Lord, remind me to nourish myself spiritually. Give me understanding, strength, and humility of mind and heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.
