Daily Psalm for 4/11/2022

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
for in you, my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings, I will take refuge,
till the storms of destruction pass by.
I cry out to God Most High,
to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
He will send from heaven and save me;
he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness! Psalms 57:1-3

The consequences of sin have a way of hammering home G-d’s reason for disliking sin. The world says “the Lord G-d doesn’t want you to have any fun”. That’s not it at all. The reason He doesn’t want us to sin is that it ruins our lives without considering who it hurts or what position he/she held. The Devil wants us to be miserable, empty and hurting because by all three he can control us and push us to make unwise decisions. Look what David did when Uriah didn’t comply with the King’s offer to go spend time with his wife. Undoubtedly G-d will most definitely heal our brokenness. The problem is, what our life will look like will be nothing compared to His very best for our life.

Father,

Your laws are the Fork in the Road what we do with those laws will determine the paths we will walk on. You forgive completely forgive sin and you restore us from brokenness and emptiness. How many times have you forgiven me, cleaned up my wounds, and reestablished my pathways? Peter spent a long few days caught in the turmoil of his actions yet that day on the beach you met his needs and spoke gently to him. In the same way, I too have spent long sleepless nights worrying about the consequences of my actions yet, here I am still here and You still paved the way to where I am today. I pray for those who are suffering this Easter season that this is the hour of their decision that many will come back to you and many more will take the first steps to your throne of forgiveness and restoration. I pray for Ukraine and Russia that inroads will be made to heal the differences between these two Sovereign nations. I pray for those dealing with COVID 19 and various other illnesses that they will be healed according to Your Word. I pray for my family that this Easter will be a special time for us as we eagerly look forward to Spring and Summer. 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).
