“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 56:1, 9-11

TODAY’S WORD…

Be gracious to me, O God,

for people trample on me;

all day long foes oppress me.

 

God is for me.

In God, whose word I praise,

in the Lord, whose word I praise,

in God I trust; I am not afraid.

What can a mere mortal do to me?

– Psalm 56:1, 9-11

 

REFLECTION…

Oh how beautiful are the Psalms, full of human outpourings to the Creator; of shouts of joy from the heart; of desperate cries for help; of expression of anger and frustration. The Psalms reflect the manner in which those who have a personal relationship with the Lord, call out to Him, as they go through life’s ups and downs.

The beauty which lies inside the heart from which such earnest feelings pour out, is the belief, the knowledge, that God is listening; that He will ultimately intervene and will reassure and strengthen. And, as we reach out, the Spirit will then take over…and the heart is quietened and heartened, and is filled with the peace of the Lord!

 

PRAYER…

My Lord, my God, my Maker,

to You I lift up all my joys and my sorrows.

 

I thank You for always being there for me,

and for Your reassuring Spirit

always by my side counselling and consoling.

 

Lord, I place my trust in You

and I seek Your strengthening grace

which ensures that nothing, of whatever nature,

will separate me from Your love.

 

I put my faith in You, O Lord,

for You are my loving God.

 

Amen.
