Today’s Tasting: Psalms 65-67; 69-70: I just love the book of Psalms!
Psalm 65 opens up with pure praise to our God! Though they were overwhelmed with their sins, He forgave them all and did great deeds! Nothing is too small or too big for God to handle. He takes care of the earth and He takes care of us all at the same time.
Psalm 66 reminds us how God made a path through the Red Sea and how our lives are in His hands. The writer invites us to hear his testimony regarding what God has done for him. He also reminds us if do not confess the sins of our heart, God will hear our prayers.
Psalm 67 continues the praise around God making His ways known throughout the earth. The writer calls all the peoples of the earth and all the nations give thanks and bless His name. He asks God to bless us and states, “all the ends of the earth shall reverently fear Him” (Psalm 67: 7).
Psalm 69 David is crying out to God for help from his enemies. He describes how they talk about him and mock him. David doesn’t want to be the cause of anyone not trusting God.
In Psalm 70 David petitions God to come quickly to his rescue. He asks God to make his enemies be humiliated so they might seek Him. He calls God his Help and his Deliverer.
Today’s Nourishment: There is nothing too hard for God to handle. He is never too consumed with helping someone else that He forgets about you. We must confess our sins to God if we want Him to answer our prayers. Unconfessed sin is a hindrance to our prayers. He is waiting to forgive us and do wonderful deeds in our life. God will rescue His people. God hears our cry for help and will answer those cries.
Father, I thank You for You are my helper! Holy Spirit help me to confess all sins in my heart so that nothing is hindering my prayers to God. I praise Your great name for You do all things well. You are a miracle worker! You have done so many great things in my life already that if You never do another thing, You have already done enough for me to keep praising You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Ask, “Holy Spirit, what unconfessed sins, possibly lingers in my heart to reveal them to me. Then, confess those sins and begin to praise God for all He has done in your life.
