Psalm 119:41-48, ESV
You delivered me from strife with the people; you made me the head of the nations; people whom I had not known served me. As soon as they heard of me they obeyed me; foreigners came cringing to me. Foreigners lost heart and came trembling out of their fortresses.
The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock, and exalted be the God of my salvation—the God who gave me vengeance and subdued peoples under me, who rescued me from my enemies; yes, you exalted me above those who rose against me; you delivered me from the man of violence.
For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and sing to your name. Great salvation he brings to his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his offspring forever.
Psalm 119:41-48, JN paraphrase
Blessed be the LORD, God, the Almighty who brought me into a place of power and authority. Who taught me to use my salvation as protection against those who rose against me and threatened violence. “For this I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations, and sing to your name. Great salvation he brings to his king, and shows steadfast love to his anointed, to David and his offspring forever.”
Man – The Dwelling Place of God, by A. W. Tozer. From the preface: “The chapters in this book deal with many of the aspects of one subject: the relationship of God and man. They are above all practical and all who read them will profit.” Each chapter is short and easily adapted to a daily devotional. Try it! I find it fits well into my end of day devotionals.
