Day 3: A Really Bad Day

READ: Psalm 3

Have you ever had a really bad day? A day where it feels like anything that can go wrong, will go wrong? That’s the kind of day David is having when he wrote Psalm 3. David’s son, Absalom, was trying to kill him because he wanted to take over David’s kingdom. I’ve had some bad days but never a my son’s trying to kill me and take all that I have kind of day – that’s a really bad day!

What’s interesting is that, even with everything that’s going wrong, David doesn’t talk about his problems, he talks about his God. That is such an important lesson to learn.

It is so easy to get focused on how big our problems are, that we forget how big our God is.

I don’t know what’s going on in your life. Maybe you are having a bad day. week, month or year. But I want to remind you that God is bigger than whatever you are facing! Peter 5:7 says, “casting all of your cares on Him, for He cares for you.” Take every care, worry, or problem to God. You don’t have to carry it alone.


Lord, I give you every problem I’m facing. I know that you care about me and what I’m going through. Today I make a choice not to think about how big my problems are. I choose to think about how big YOU are!
