A psalm of David. I give you thanks, O Lord, with all my heart; I will sing your praises before the gods. I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name. As soon as I pray, you answer me; you encourage me by giving me strength. Every king in all the earth will thank you, Lord, for all of them will hear your words. Yes, they will sing about the Lord’s ways, for the glory of the Lord is very great. Though the Lord is great, he cares for the humble, but he keeps his distance from the proud. Though I am surrounded by troubles, you will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me. The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.NLT
This was very encouraging for me this morning. I have been very busy as of late and my quite time is suffered. I really don’t like that. I woke up this morning and I laid there and thought “YES” Lord whatever you want. While I was prayer walking in my driveway I heard Psalm 137 so when I came in I read it and didn’t get anything from it so I read Psalm 138 and got peace from it. One of the lines really struck a chord with me. He keeps His distance from the proud. Do you ever wonder why you are not hearing Him? Does the Lord feel distant? Just a few questions to ask yourself.
I have a prayer request, please pray that I would have more balance in my life when it comes to work, family and my time with the Lord. Thanks
