Ps 25:16-21 NLT
Turn to me and have mercy on me, for I am alone and
in deep distress. My problems go from bad to worse. Oh,
save me from them all! Feel my pain and see my
trouble. Forgive all my sins. See how many enemies I
have, and how viciously they hate me! Protect me!
Rescue my life from them! Do not let me be disgraced,
for I trust in you. May integrity and honesty protect
me, for I put my hope in you.
HEARD: Grace. Forever changed. Into My
Rom 5:3-5 NLT
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and
trials, for we know that they are good for us — they
help us learn to endure. 4 And endurance develops
strength of character in us, and character strengthens
our confident expectation of salvation. 5 And this
expectation will not disappoint us. For we know how
dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy
Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.

Deut 1:9-18 NKJV
"And I spoke to you at that time, saying: 'I alone am
not able to bear you. 10 The LORD your God has
multiplied you, and here you are today, as the stars of
heaven in multitude. 11 May the LORD God of your fathers
make you a thousand times more numerous than you are,
and bless you as He has promised you! 12 How can I alone
bear your problems and your burdens and your complaints?
13 Choose wise, understanding, and knowledgeable men
from among your tribes, and I will make them heads over
you.' 14 And you answered me and said, 'The thing which
you have told us to do is good.' 15 So I took the heads
of your tribes, wise and knowledgeable men, and made
them heads over you, leaders of thousands, leaders of
hundreds, leaders of fifties, leaders of tens, and
officers for your tribes. 16 "Then I commanded your
judges at that time, saying, 'Hear the cases between
your brethren, and judge righteously between a man and
his brother or the stranger who is with him. 17 You
shall not show partiality in judgment; you shall hear
the small as well as the great; you shall not be afraid
in any man's presence, for the judgment is God's. The
case that is too hard for you, bring to me, and I will
hear it.' 18 And I commanded you at that time all the
things which you should do.

WORD TO PONDER: FINDING BALANCE AMONG PEOPLE’S
When surrounded in the midst of many people with
problems, determine to stay where I have called you.
Precious one, the world is full of many children all
growing up into My stature. Each and every level has
its own trials and sufferings that produce character and
good fruit when coming into My image.
You can not carry all their problems and if you try, it
will derail you on your own journey. I have not called
you to be their source, be watchful of those who lean
and drain life from you. Do your part by remaining
simple when sharing the gifts I give to you. Learn how
to balance the boundaries I have set for your life; be
loving but firm with those who resist them. Teach them
to lean on Me as their Source. And learn how to be a
helping hand by dispatching the problems to the body who
are to do the work of ministry. Many hands make light
Eph 4:12 AMP
His intention was the perfecting and the full
equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that
they should do] the work of ministering toward building
up Christ's body (the church).
