The Assurance of God’s Saving Work 20 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble; May the name of the God of Jacob [a]defend you; 2 May He send you help from the sanctuary, And strengthen you out of Zion; 3 May He remember all your offerings, And accept your burnt sacrifice. Selah 4 May He grant you according to your heart’s desire, And fulfill all your [b]purpose. 5 We will rejoice in your salvation, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners!

Psalms 42 (ERV)

Yearning for God in the Midst of Distresses 42 Like a deer drinking from a stream,     I reach out to you, my God.[a] 2 My soul thirsts for the living God.     When can I go to meet with him? 3 Instead of food, I have only tears day and night,     as my enemies laugh at me and say, “Where is your God?” 4 My heart breaks as I remember the pleasant times in the past,     when I walked with the crowds as I led them up to God’s Temple. I remember the happy songs of praise     as they celebrated the festival. 5-6 Why am I so sad?     Why am I so … Continue reading Psalms 42 (ERV)

Psalms 115 (NKJV)

The Futility of Idols and the Trustworthiness of God 115 Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, But to Your name give glory, Because of Your mercy, Because of Your truth. 2 Why should the [a]Gentiles say, “So where is their God?” 3 But our God is in heaven; He does whatever He pleases. 4 Their idols are silver and gold, The work of men’s hands. 5 They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see; 6 They have ears, but they do not hear; Noses they have, but they do not smell; 7 They have hands, but they do not handle; Feet they have, but they do not walk; Nor do they mutter … Continue reading Psalms 115 (NKJV)

Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” 3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the [a]fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and [b]buckler. 5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall … Continue reading Psalms 91 (NKJV)

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! Scripture: Psalm 1 (NKJV) Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the unodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he [b]meditates day and night. 3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the [c]rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor … Continue reading The Journey Begins
