Christ Alone

Who (or what) is your Sustainer?

This morning I was reading through Psalm 3. When I got to verse 5 the word "Sustained" jumped out at me. The verse says, “I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the LORD sustained me.”

He (Christ) is my Sustainer. (Praise Him!)

How often I look elsewhere for sustainment when the only person I should be looking to is Christ. And it follows that when I am looking elsewhere for sustainment, I begin to feel depleted and overwhelmed by life.

Forgive me, Lord.

Thank you, Lord that You alone are my Sustainer. Help me to turn to You and Your Word when I’m feeling empty and overwhelmed and even before. Forgive me, for looking elsewhere for filling and nourishment – to blogs, books, people, and things... for they can not fill me or bring nourishment to my soul. Only You can do this. Sustain me as I look to You. Thank You that Your promises are always true.
