Let’s Be Honest

Psalm 5:1-8
1Give ear to my words, O LORD; *
consider my meditation.

 

 

2Hearken to my cry for help, my King and my God, *
for I make my prayer to you.

 

 

3In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; *
early in the morning I make my appeal and watch for you.

 

 

4For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness, *
and evil cannot dwell with you.

 

 

5Braggarts cannot stand in your sight; *
you hate all those who work wickedness.

 

 

6You destroy those who speak lies; *
the bloodthirsty and deceitful, O LORD, you abhor.

 

 

7But as for me, through the greatness of your mercy I willgo into your house; *
I will bow down toward your holy temple in awe of you.

 

 

8Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness,
because of those who lie in wait for me; *
make your way straight before me.

Observation

This scripture shows how important honesty is to God and why we should value it as well. 

Application

What are others to you? Do you use them as a means to your own ends or are you willing to share the gospel with them by any means?

 

Today’s Prayer

Lord help us to value people the way you value them. Let us not view them as trophies to collect nor as doormats to walk over, let us see You in them and may they see You in us. Lord we thank You for saving us and sparing us from the worst of life’s difficulties. We ask You to strengthen us to overcome adversity so that our very lives proclaim Your goodness and mercy. We thank You for everything You are doing in our lives.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Carry On

PSALM 30

 

 

 

1
I will exalt you, O LORD,
because you have lifted me up *
and have not let my enemies triumph over me. 

 

2
O LORD my God, I cried out to you, *
and you restored me to health. 

 

3
You brought me up, O LORD, from the dead; *
you restored my life as I was going down to the grave. 

 

4
Sing to the LORD, you servants of his; *
give thanks for the remembrance of his holiness. 

 

5
For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye, *
his favor for a lifetime. 

 

6
Weeping may spend the night, *
but joy comes in the morning. 

 

7
While I felt secure, I said,
“I shall never be disturbed. *
You, LORD, with your favor, made me as strong as the mountains.” 

 

8
Then you hid your face, *
and I was filled with fear. 

 

9
I cried to you, O LORD; *
I pleaded with the Lord, saying, 

 

10
“What profit is there in my blood, if I go down to the Pit? *
will the dust praise you or declare your faithfulness? 

 

11
Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me; *
O LORD, be my helper.” 

 

12
You have turned my wailing into dancing; *
you have put off my sack-cloth and clothed me with joy. 

 

13
Therefore my heart sings to you without ceasing; *
O LORD my God, I will give you thanks for ever.
Observation

Something powerful about verse 5, “For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye, his favor for a lifetime.” It helps me to endure because it’s as if I can hear the Father say, “Carry on.”

Application

Praise is a weapon. Can you muster up the necessary hope to praise God in spite of your circumstance?

 

Today’s Prayer

Father I just want to thank You for being so committed to us. Thank You for walking with us through the difficulties of life. Guide us so that we can keep the right perspective. Not focusing on our circumstance but centering ourselves in you. Let us remember that You are our source and are greater than any obstacle we may encounter.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.

Least of These

Psalm 146

 

 

1
Hallelujah!
Praise the LORD, O my soul! *
I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

 

 

2
Put not your trust in rulers, nor in any child of earth, *
for there is no help in them.

 

 

3
When they breathe their last, they return to earth, *
and in that day their thoughts perish.

 

 

4
Happy are they who have the God of Jacob for their help!*
whose hope is in the LORD their God;

 

 

5
Who made heaven and earth, the seas, and all that is in them; *
who keeps his promise for ever;

 

 

6
Who gives justice to those who are oppressed, *
and food to those who hunger.

 

 

7
The LORD sets the prisoners free;
the LORD opens the eyes of the blind; *
the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;

 

 

8
The LORD loves the righteous;
the LORD cares for the stranger; *
he sustains the orphan and widow,
but frustrates the way of the wicked.

 

 

9
The LORD shall reign for ever, *
your God, O Zion, throughout all generations.
Hallelujah!

Observation

Our God is a champion for the least of these. Those whom the world neglects, are they whom the Lord selects.

Application

If God is with the orphan, the stranger and the widow, where should we be?

Today’s Prayer

Lord we thank You for another day because it is another opportunity to get it right. And we know it is not by our works Oh Father but by Your goodness and mercy that we are here. We ask You to guide us to make the most of this day. Let us be a blessing to our family, our friends, coworkers, and everyone we come across today. Help us to love people we may not even like. We ask You to strengthen us and to walk in the confidence that You are good and You are for us.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
