Daily Psalm for 2/11/2022

Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law, he meditates day and night. Psalms 1:1-2

When we walk in obedience to the Lord and listen for His counsel, He directs us around the traps that will take us down. In every walk of life, there are scoffers decrying stances partly because they believe “their way is the only way”. The thing is, “scoffing” is not limited to the world’s ways but is also seen in religious circles. In the days following Pentecost, Saul was a scoffer decrying the foolishness of believing anything about the Risen Lord. When he came in contact with the Risen Lord, his viewpoint was drastically altered as he considered the truth of the Word. Today I want to ask you a simple question, “are you Saul sitting with the religious but living a life of sin”? If so, may the Lord meet you where you are and lead you in the pathway of truth.

Father,

The easiest thing in the world to do is “scoff at what we do not know”. You want more from us than for us to sit on a post scoffing as the Lord moves onward. It is a bitter pill to swallow finding out that our way is not necessarily Your way and that what we believe is a lie. Please be with those who need a special touch from You. I pray for my family today for your blessing upon each and every one of them. I pray for the military, law enforcement, and EMT communities that you will be with every one of them and bring them safely home. I pray over our politicians that you will continue to shake them to their core with the message of the Ephod so that they fully understand who they serve. I pray for the city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and the USA may your Spirit fall fresh upon us. I pray for the truckers who carry supplies to our communities. I thank you for healing our land by rain that refreshes the land and the storms that shake the heart of mankind. I pray for those who need a special touch from you today. Finally, I pray that my words will always be an encouragement to all who read these words in Jesus’ name I pray. May your peace be upon my family, city, state, nation, and world. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalms 19:14).
