Psalm 143 ~ When My Soul Feels Weak


A personal confession based on the Psalms.

When My Soul Feels Weak ~ from Psalm 143

When the enemy comes after me,
And my soul feels weak,
And my heart is distressed,
I remember days gone by
And all Yahweh has done for me.
I ponder all the ways He works
On my behalf.

I stretch out my hands to Him,
Thirsty for Him,
Like a land without rain.
I know He will answer me
And will not let me fade away.
He will not hide His face from me,
He has already revealed it to me
In the face of Jesus the Son.

I will hear word
Of His faithful love
In the morning,
Because I trust in Him.
He will show me
The way I should go,
Because I look to Him.
He will deliver me from my enemies,
Because He is my shelter
And I run to Him.

He will teach me to do
What is pleasing to Him,
Because He is my God.
He will guide me by His Spirit
And lead me on level ground,
Because He is good.

He will revive me,
Because I belong to Him
And bear His name.
He will bring me out of distress
Because He is faithful
To His own.
And in His faithful love,
He will cut off all who attack me,
For I am His servant.
