Good morning! The Lord is gracious and trustworthy. Spend time in prayer today and seek him for direction.
“137 O Lord, you are righteous,
and your regulations are fair.
138 Your laws are perfect
and completely trustworthy.
139 I am overwhelmed with indignation,
for my enemies have disregarded your words.
140 Your promises have been thoroughly tested; that is why I love them so much.
141 I am insignificant and despised,
but I don’t forget your commandments.
142 Your justice is eternal,
and your instructions are perfectly true.
143 As pressure and stress bear down on me,
I find joy in your commands.
144 Your laws are always right;
help me to understand them so I may live.” Psalm 119:137-144 NLT
I love this prayer request by the Psalmist, “help me to understand them [God’s laws] so I may live.”
Brothers and sisters, 1 Peter 1:8-9 NLT reads “You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.”
Today, if or when you feel pressure or stress bear down on you – pray believing the Lord is:
Hold on to your faith!
Father God, we thank you for another day. Lord, we thank you for keeping us through the night. Lord, thank you for shielding us from things we could not see. Lord, continue to reveal yourself to us so that we may understand your word and live it out daily. Lord, we pray for people who are being impacted by earthquakes, those in the line of erupting volcanoes and other natural disasters across the world. Lord, we know these events will occur, but Lord people need you. Lord, send your rain to the deserts, plug up the volcanoes and cease the flow of lava. Lord, provide shelter wherever there is a need. Lord, be with missionaries as they spread the gospel message and surround them with your protection. Lord, be with the leaders of nations and let them seek you for understanding and wisdom. Lord, teach them humility and obedience to your word. Lord, teach us and transform us daily. Lord, as we place our personal burdens at your feet, cover us with your peace knowing you have everything under control. In Jesus name, amen.
