Psalm 4: Evening Prayer of Trust in God

Answer me when I call, God of my righteousness!You have relieved me in my distress;Be gracious to me and hear my prayer. 2 You sons of man, how long will my honor be treated as an insult?How long will you love what is worthless and strive for a lie? Selah3 But know that the Lord has set apart the godly person for Himself;The Lord hears when I call to Him. Godly: Faithful & devoted to GodHe hears you, and He will answer you. 4 Tremble, and do not sin;Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,And trust in the Lord. To sacrifice is to submit, obey and praise God in all that you do. 6 Many are saying, “Who will show us anything good?”Lift up the light of Your face upon us, Lord!7 You have put joy in my heart,More than when their grain and new wine...

Psalm 23: The Good Shepherd

1 The Lord is my shepherd,I will not be in need.   God is our Provider. We will not be in need. 2 He lets me lie down in green pastures;He leads me beside quiet waters.3 He restores my soul;He guides me in the paths of righteousnessFor the sake of His name. 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I fear no evil, for You are with me;Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.   Not permanent. Dark valleys are just a season of life. God is always with you and He will bring you safely to the other side. Rods were used to prevent wolves and lions from attacking the sheep. Staffs were used to pick the sheep up when they fall. 5 You prepare a table before me in the...

Psalm 1: The Two Ways (3 June)

1 Blessed is the person who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,Nor stand in the path of sinners,Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!2 But his delight is in the Law of the Lord,And on His Law he meditates day and night.   Meditates: To spend time thinking, reading, and asking how I can change my life the way God wants. 3 He will be like a tree planted by streams of water,Which yields its fruit in its season,And its leaf does not wither;And in whatever he does, he prospers.   Verse 3: What happens when you apply God's wisdom in your life. Yields its fruit: Good fruits that are of God's approval and blessings.   4 The wicked are not so,But they are like chaff which the wind blows away.   Chaff: Symbol...

Is God your "911 helpline"?

Do your desires for things dictate your prayer life? Do your circumstances decide when you reach out to God? Do you pick up your Bible only to see what it says about a certain situation you're in? Or to find verses to pray for and declare over your loved ones?Yes, God has indeed told us to ask for things and to present every request before Him. But if that is the only time we seek Him, are we desiring to know Him for who He is, or are we just in it for the benefits?Do you start to pray more when money gets tight? Do you only pick up your Bible when your life is falling apart?Yes, God should be...
