Daily Psalm for 3/14/2022

Better is the little that the righteous has
than the abundance of many wicked.
For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
but the LORD upholds the righteous.
The LORD knows the days of the blameless,
and their heritage will remain forever;
they are not put to shame in evil times;
in the days of famine, they have abundance.
But the wicked will perish;
the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures;
they vanish—like smoke, they vanish away. Psalms 37:16-20

For a number of years now, we have heard the phrase “instant gratification” which means, “buy now pay later”. The problem with that thought process is, “what it does to our soul”. I’ve said before, the one thing we possess is our “integrity” if we give that away in our quest for wealth, we have lost everything and will never get it back. History and the news are replete with cases where people have sold their integrity for short-term gains. That said, “does G-d want us to be broke as church mice barely scrapping by”? The answer is, “no” but He does want us to use wisdom and approach life with our eyes forever upon him and let Him be our fear and dread.

Father,

Of all the things in this world, the one thing that cannot be bought and nor can it be manufactured is Peace that can only come from a righteous life. My son said years ago when I got my new motorcycle, “that should make you happy” and responded “things cannot make you happy” and they don’t. Things become nooses and nooses become pains that need to be gotten rid of. I pray in the remaining two weeks until Easter for your help to consider all the things in my life to see if my foundation is stable, and there is nothing stopping me from entering your Kingdom after I am gone. My desire is that my children will know the G-d I serve and that You are their hope and dread. I pray for the people of Ukraine and Russia and now Poland. Lord, the enemy is pulling out all of the stops in his zeal to do as much damage as he can before his time is finished.  I pray for those who are negatively impacted by the COVID and its twisted sister Omicron. I pray for my families that you will be with each member and that this Easter will be a time of rejuvination as the grounds melt and planting time starts. 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).
