I am Weak ~ Sunday Devotion
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak; O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled. Psalm 6:2 (NKJV)
How many times have I gone days, weeks, years struggling with something on my own because I refused to admit my weakness? Have you found yourself doing the same?
My relationship with food and my body was something that needed to be healed, but I waited a long time before I cried out to Jesus. When I finally admitted I am weak, He had mercy on me. He healed my relationship with food and my body, and He can do the same for you.
I am weak. I need Jesus. I need His help with each new day. But I need to be willing to admit this. I still need His help to stay healthy with my relationship with food and my body.When you are weak, cry out to Jesus. He is the Great Physician and wants to heal your spirit, mind, and body.

One version of this verse says, my bones are in agony. “My bones” refers to the core of who I am. The Psalmist is crying out to the Lord in desperate need of help, of healing to his core. Likely spiritual, emotional healing.
How can we apply the Psalmist’s prayer to our lives?
- Cry out to the Lord. He hears you. He wants to heal you, but He will never force Himself on you.
- Acknowledge that you are weak. Without Christ, we can do nothing.
- Know that you are not alone. His mercy is available and new every day.
Action Step: Call out to the Lord today. Admit your area of weakness. Let Him know what troubles you. He is the Great Physician and is ready to heal your spirit, mind, and body.
