UNFAILING LOVE, HIS GLORY!

Psalms of Honesty and Truth

Before writing each morning, I write to God first in a journal of words to only Him. This is a sacred time for me to thank Him for helping us the previous day, to ask for wisdom, to cry out for help, to ask for help for others and to end with praise for Who God is and what He has done, is doing and will do in our lives. I thank Him for protection. Then I ask for His strength for another day. This pattern of petition and praise are not empty words to me.

As we continue to make our way through the Psalms, I see the same pattern in our psalm composers. His Word teaches us to pray and sing. His Word shows us His Glory continuously. I am grateful for His unfailing love for us, even when I don’t love myself so much some days. To God be the Glory! “For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.”

Psalm 57, NLT

Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy!
I look to you for protection.
I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings
until the danger passes by.

2 I cry out to God Most High,[b]
to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.
3 He will send help from heaven to rescue me,
disgracing those who hound me. Interlude
My God will send forth his unfailing love and faithfulness.

4 I am surrounded by fierce lions
who greedily devour human prey—
whose teeth pierce like spears and arrows,
and whose tongues cut like swords.

5 Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens!
May your glory shine over all the earth.

6 My enemies have set a trap for me.
I am weary from distress.
They have dug a deep pit in my path,
but they themselves have fallen into it. Interlude

7 My heart is confident in you, O God;
my heart is confident.
No wonder I can sing your praises!
8 Wake up, my heart!
Wake up, O lyre and harp!
I will wake the dawn with my song.
9 I will thank you, Lord, among all the people.
I will sing your praises among the nations.

10 For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
11 Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens.
May your glory shine over all the earth.

psalm-57-10

May His glory be reflected from our lives today.
In Jesus Name, Amen
