“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 40:1-4

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,

and He turned to me and heard my cry.

.

He lifted me out of the pit of despair,

out of the mud and the mire.

He set my feet on solid ground

and steadied me as I walked along.

.

He has given me a new song to sing,

a hymn of praise to our God.

Many will see what He has done and be amazed.

They will put their trust in the Lord.

.

Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord…

.

– Psalm 40:1-4 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

Oh, the joys of those who trust the Lord

– just ask them and they will gladly tell you, with great joy in their hearts,

about how great the Lord is;

how He lifts them and carries them through life;

how He is their Rock;

and how He makes them feel so secure in His love.

.

How fortunate and blessed we are who place our trust in the Lord!

This is why our hearts sing praise to Him.

This is why we give Him thanks for the hope He fills us with,

as we seek to love Him with all our heart, mind and strength,

and to obey Him and do His will.

ENCOURAGEMENT…

.

“Wait patiently for the Lord.

Be brave and courageous.

Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”

.

– Psalm 27:14

.

.

“Trust in the Lord forever,

for the Lord, the Lord is the Rock Eternal.”

.

– Isaiah 26:4

.

.

"Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.”

.

– Isaiah 40:31

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord. grant that I will wait patiently on You

and faithfully place all my trust in You,

as I eagerly await Your uplifting grace,

knowing that Your love and Spirit are with me

despite who I am and what I’ve done.

.

Lord, You fill me with unimaginable hope and joy!
