Daily Psalm for 3/17/2022

The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks justice.
The law of his God is in his heart;
his steps do not slip.
The wicked watches for the righteous
and seeks to put him to death.
The LORD will not abandon him to his power
or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial.
Wait for the LORD and keep his way,
and he will exalt you to inherit the land;
you will look on when the wicked are cut off. Psalms 37:30-34

When you read this segment, you might think “Gee that’s beautiful G-d has it all in hand”, “I’m ready for the battle” and “no harm is going to come to me”. The thing is if it were possible to have a clear definition of what is “evil” and “what is good” and the two did not mix, going to battle would be easy. The problem is the two are not clearly defined and sometimes arguments arise between family members and even your closest church friends. Remember, Theology is the study of G-d and religious belief is a cornerstone of controversy among family and church groups. As long as everybody in your circle agrees there is no problem. Yet, let someone disagree and problems arise and I can personally testify to that. As we prepare for Easter, I challenge you to carefully review what you believe and why you believe it and then back it up with scripture and history.

Father,

Your deepest desire for your children is that they would have peace in the time of your favor which is, “today”. I know people are struggling on various levels across our world and that the Devil is doing his ultimate worst to divide, conquer, and destroy but Your son came that we might have peace and that more abundantly. I know that people are fearful of the future economically and socially. I pray for my world today that in your time you will break the back of Leviathan that people will know the true G-d. I do not pretend to be a Theological major nor do I want to dictate my thoughts to other people because everybody without exception must make their own choices. I pray for the people of Ukraine and Russia that they will resolve their issues and find a way towards peace that both sides can agree on. I pray for those who are negatively impacted by COVID 19 and Omicron. 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).
