Psalm 71:4-8

October 15, 2019

Rescue me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel man. For you, O Lord, are my hope, my trust, O LORD, from my youth. Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother's womb. My praise is continually of you. I have been as a portent to many, but you are my strong refuge. My mouth is filled with your praise, and with your glory all the day.

You well know, far better than I, of those areas of family, ministry, and finances that are distracting me from You. Yet You have always been as the Shield of Patrick around me, in front and behind, on the right and the left, and above and below. How can I forget? Why do I forget? It is because I am so easily distracted from praising You. Fill me, Holy Spirit, with those words of praise and the Glory of the Lord all of my day.

Psalm 71:1-3

October 14, 2019

In you, O LORD, do I take refuge; let me never be put to shame! In your righteousness deliver me and rescue me; incline your ear to me, and save me! Be to me a rock of refuge, to which I may continually come; you have given the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.

You are my high place, the place of refuge, and protection from all the attacks of the evil one. You never fail, never sleep or slumber, are always at my side even when I ignore You and seek other gods.

Exodus 20:1-2, 15

October 13, 2019

And God spoke all these words, saying, "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. ... You shall not steal."

How many ways do I steal and not recognize it as theft? How about the times that I boast that I know a certain individual, that he is a good friend in the hope that a little of his notoriety will rub off on me? How many times do I shade and color a story just to make me appear more benevolent than I am? Countless schemes to improve John's standing in the community. Forgive me, Lord, and send Your Holy Spirit to excise that pride and self-adulation.

Psalm 119:84-85

October 12, 2019

How long must your servant endure? When will you judge those who persecute me? The insolent have dug pitfalls for me; they do not live according to your law.

Lord, I am the insolent who digs pitfalls for myself, I persecute me with falsehoods, I am the one who seeks to tear me from your warm embrace. And I am the one crying for comfort.

Lord, I need that Kingdom perspective to live in obedience to You in all things. Change my heart, oh God,/ make it ever true./ May I be like you.

Psalm 70:5

October 11, 2019

But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay!

You do hasten to my need; You cover me in my most desperate hours with love and grace. You fill me with Your joy and with Your peace. You hold back the evil one from besetting me and attempting to rob me of my communion with You. You are the God of all compassion and love.

Praise you, LORD.

Psalm 70:4

October 10, 2019

May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you! May those who love your salvation say evermore, "God is great!"

You are indeed great, my God and Father, Your salvation is complete and without limit or measure. You excite and incite love in my soul, love for You, for Your creation and for all those who name You as Lord and Savior. I am overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of Your salvation and by Your great grace and mercy to me. May my paeans of joy reach to the very furthest parts of the universe.

Psalm 70:1-3

October 09, 2019

To the choirmaster. Of David, for the memorial offering. Make haste, O God, to deliver me! O LORD, make haste to help me! Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life! Let them be turned back and brought to dishonor who delight in my hurt! Let them turn back because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!"

Lord, I can come to You, day or night, health or sickness, joy or sorrow, and You are there to comfort me and provide solace and solution when needed or to share in my elation and rejoice in my joy. You are my Savior and my Brother. Praise You, Lord.

Psalm 69:29-36

October 08, 2019

But I am afflicted and in pain; let your salvation, O God, set me on high! I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs. When the humble see it they will be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive. For the LORD hears the needy and does not despise his own people who are prisoners. Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in them. For God will save Zion and build up the cities of Judah, and people shall dwell there and possess it; the offspring of his servants shall inherit it, and those who love his name shall dwell in it.

Praise You, my Lord and my Master, for You are at my side through all trials and tribulations. I can come to You with thanksgiving and praise to make my prayers know to You, and You will not only provide the guidance needed, but You will fill my heart and mind with Your peace.

Psalm 69:22-28

October 07, 2019

Let their own table before them become a snare; and when they are at peace, let it become a trap. Let their eyes be darkened, so that they cannot see, and make their loins tremble continually. Pour out your indignation upon them, and let your burning anger overtake them. May their camp be a desolation; let no one dwell in their tents. For they persecute him whom you have struck down, and they recount the pain of those you have wounded. Add to them punishment upon punishment; may they have no acquittal from you. Let them be blotted out of the book of the living; let them not be enrolled among the righteous.

Lord, I know that the Evil One sends many of his minions in a wide variety of forms. Sometimes a person, sometimes a tormenting spirit, sometimes a physical affliction, and sometimes a temptation to succumb to the wants and desires of the old man, but always something where You will stand between me and the temptation to yield to sin. Let Your praises ever be in my mouth and a two-edged sword in my hand.
