Good morning and happy Presidents Day! Our trust is in the Lord.

“20 Our soul waits for the Lord;
    he is our help and shield.
21 Our heart is glad in him,
    because we trust in his holy name.
22 Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
    even as we hope in you.” (Psalm 33:20-22 NLT)

We trust you Lord!

Lord, thank you for being our help and our shield. Lord, when we get impatient – help us to wait for you. Lord, be with our nation and world leaders as they make decisions. Lord, you have changed hearts of kings and nations, and today – Lord, we ask that you take the lead in our nation and world. Lord, let your love and compassion pour out from the lips and actions of our leaders. Lord, while we wait on you, continue to teach us your ways and change us from the inside out. In Jesus name, amen.

Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!

Which Way Will You Go

Good morning! Today is Friday, will you let the Lord take the lead?

I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon youDo not be like a horse or a mule, without understanding, whose temper must be curbed with bit and bridle, else it will not stay near you. 10 Many are the torments of the wicked, but steadfast love surrounds those who trust in the Lord11 Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart.” Psalm 32:8-11 NLT

Do you have decisions to make? _____

If so, today and throughout the weekend think about the decisions you need to make. Write them down and pray over them. Then spend time with Lord and allow him to counsel and guide you on the next steps.

Lord, you know and see everything. From the beginning to the end, you know each of our stories. Lord, you know our learning style, how we receive information and the best way to explain things to us. Lord, you never leave or forsake us, and you guide us with perfect love and a careful eye. Lord today will you show us the way you want us to go. Will you counsel us on the decisions we need to make and will you unfold your purpose and plan for us so that we may pursue those things that please you with our whole heart? Lord, we trust you in various areas of our lives, but we want to trust you with everything. Lord, whatever is ahead, we trust you to be the same God who loves us today. Lord, when we don’t understand all the details or the reason for a particular season in our lives, comfort us, give us peace and strengthen our faith as we seek you for counsel and surrender our will and anger to you. Lord, be with the people whose family members and friends were killed or injured in the school shooting in Florida. Lord, send an army of angels to comfort them and bring them peace. Lord, be with others around the world who need you. Lord, help us to serve you with our whole heart. Equip us and send us out to be your hands and feet in this broken world. Lord, continue your work in our lives – change us. In Jesus name, amen.

Good morning! Enjoy today’s message as we continue with Psalm 32.

For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer. Then I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not hide my iniquityI said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,” and you forgave the guilt of my sinTherefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you; at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters shall not reach themYou are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with glad cries of deliverance.” Psalm 32:4-7 NLT 

The Lord is a hiding place for you. Seek the Lord and find shelter in his presence.

Dear Lord, thank you for giving us an opportunity to repent from our sins. Lord, only you have the power to forgive sin – and we thank you. Lord, come into our hearts today and free us from the shame of our past, heal the brokenness that keeps is from experiencing the fullness of you. Lord, deliver us from the things that have us bound. Teach us to surrender our will and to trust you in every area of our lives. Lord, continue to change us and may our testimony glorify you. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!

Good morning! Psalm 32 is another psalm that contains powerful bite size verses. As such I plan to spend a few days meditating on the words. Will you join me?

Happy are those whose transgression is forgivenwhose sin is coveredHappy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.” Psalm 32:1-2 NLT 

When we think about the goodness of the Lord, we can find renewed happiness because the Lord who knows everything about us, yet he offers us forgiveness and imputes no iniquity.

Do you remember the day you gave your life to Christ? Are you still looking for happiness?

Happiness starts at the cross…

Thank you Jesus!

Dear Lord, thank you for your love and mercy toward us, that even in the midst of our sins you pursued us and gave us an opportunity to accept you into our hearts as our Lord and Savior. Lord, you knew us before we were born and covered us with an unfailing and unconditional love. Lord, you have shown us how to love others and ourselves. Lord, be with us today as we seek to follow you. Cover us and direct our steps. Soften our hearts and give us wisdom and discernment as we learn to love as you love. Change us! 💜 In Jesus name, amen!

Keep seeking! Keep trusting! Keep praying!

In the shelter of his presence we are hidden and safe.

Lord, you are our protector and shield. You cover us with your amazing love and comfort us with peace. Lord, thank you for keeping us in the midst of chaos and the unknown. Lord, direct our steps and lead us away from the things that do not please you. Lord, be with us and help us to rest assure that you are wherever we go and no matter what comes our way.
