Today I read the 143rd Psalm as part of my daily Bible reading program. As I read through it, I thought of the number of my friends and family who are enduring deep and abiding troubles in their lives. Trouble is nothing new to the human experience as man has gone through trouble all of their lives. Yet, in reflecting on this particular Psalm, God impressed on my spirit to pray for my friends using the words of this Psalm. One of the biggest needs whether spoken or unspoken is, rest both spiritually and physically. The enemy of our soul uses our weariness against us by playing with our minds. For those of you who are going through struggles today, I encourage you to find a comfortable place and read the words of this Psalm. After you are through reading it, close your eyes and reflect back on a time when life was really at its best and/or when God came through for you. If you have never put your faith in Him, let’s make this right in the words of Isaiah to the rebellious nation Israel: “Come let us reason together says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are like crimson, they shall be like wool” (Isa 1:28). My prayer for you today is that you will find rest for your soul (Matthew 11:28).
Yours for the Victory
