Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O Lord, the God of truth. —Psalm 31:4-5

The “trap” in this verse can represent many things to us, like spiritual, physical, financial, or relational quagmires. In Jesus’s experience, the trap was His bearing the sin of the world before His exaltation. He cried, “Father, pull Me out of the impossible situation, for You are My strength.” He knew He could not deliver Himself as He hung in the dark place between promise and fulfillment. His confidence rested in His Father alone. In our own times of trouble and personal injustice, the Lord is looking for that same cry to come forth from our hearts. God is calling us to this place of dependence. He is beckoning us to depend on Him with every hope for breakthrough, every need for provision, every dream of success. We must surrender our deepest desires to God’s keeping. We are utterly unable to bring our prophetic promises to pass. Only He can change the times and seasons and bring the breakthrough we long for.


Father, Your Son’s confidence as He faced death did not lie in circumstances or people—His confidence rested in You alone. Call me to this place of total dependence upon You; teach me to surrender myself completely to You.

Beloved, in our difficult seasons of life,
we must commit our deepest passions
and prophetic promises to God.
