Daily Psalm for 2/16/2022

O LORD, how many are my foes!
Many are rising against me;
many are saying of my soul,
“There is no salvation for him in God. Selah
But you, O LORD, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the LORD,
and he answered me from his holy hill. Psalms 3:1-4

Sin is a tragedy not only for the people we hurt by our choices but for ourselves and family as well. Repentance does not make what we did “mysteriously disappear”, it brings the problem into the open so that healing and restoration can commence. The Lord may forget our sins but mankind will not forget so easily. No matter what we go through as a direct result of our actions, the Lord will go with us and help us to navigate the treacherous waters.

Father,

It would be in our best interests to never sin but in this world, it is not feasible. David is not the first man to sin and he won’t be the last. For this reason, we need your grace and we need to extend it. Help me to let go of the hurts and pains people have caused me along the pathways of my life that when I am in need of your grace, You will not withhold it from me. I pray for my families today that you will watch over 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).
