1st Sunday of Lent

Just this week we learned with thankful hearts that:  I am a child of God, I am indwelt by His Holy Spirit and I am reconciled to God.  David knew he was loved by God, had a purpose to fulfill for Him and that God would send a Savior to save all mankind.  Read and reflect today on David’s words in Psalm 51.

shadow of His wingsPsalm 51  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!    

My soul is in the midst of lions;
    I lie down amid fiery beasts—
the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
    whose tongues are sharp swords.

 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!

 They set a net for my steps;
    my soul was bowed down.
They dug a pit in my way,
    but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah
 My heart is steadfast, O God,
    my heart is steadfast!
I will sing and make melody!
    Awake, my glory![b]
Awake, O harp and lyre!
    I will awake the dawn!
 psalm 57 10I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
    I will sing praises to you among the nations.
 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the clouds.

 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!

 

God is ever faithful to you and me just as He was to his servant David.  Praise Him today as you worship together.
