DAY EIGHTEEN – PSALM 37

DAY EIGHTEEN

“Do not fret because of evil men, or be envious of those

who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither,

like green plants they will soon die away.

Trust in the Lord and do good;

dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Delight yourself in the Lord

and He will give you the desires of your heart.” 

Psalm 37:3,4

COMMENT

Have you ever looked at ungodly people and envied their prosperity while you seem to do nothing but struggle?  You may think that God doesn’t care about you, otherwise life would not be so difficult for you.  Instead of looking at the way things appear to be, why don’t you follow the instructions of God’s word?  Instead of envying the wicked, put your trust in God, wait for Him to work on your behalf and see what He can do for you.  He has promised that, if you take delight in Him, He will fulfil the desires of your heart.  Why don’t you put God to the test and allow Him to show you that He is always faithful to His promises?

PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

I am sure that you are learning to release your faith by praising God every day for the all the details of His goodness to you.  Do you have desires and longings that have yet to be fulfilled?  Thank the Lord and praise Him that He will satisfy all your desires as you take delight and rejoice in Him, and live in His word.

DAY SEVENTEEN – PSALM 91

DAY SEVENTEEN

“‘Because he loves me,’ says the Lord,

‘I will rescue him;

I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

He will call upon me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble,

I will deliver him and honour him. 

With long life I will satisfy him

and show him my salvation.’”

Psalm 91:14-16

COMMENT

What an amazing string of promises!   Read through them again.  God promises to rescue you, protect you, answer your prayers when you call to Him, be with you, deliver and honour you, satisfy you with long life and show you His salvation.  Amid the storms of life that you and I face every day, what more could we ask for than all the things God has promised in these verses we have read today?  This should make your heart sing for joy because you are never alone or abandoned by your God and He is powerful enough to honour every promise He has made.

PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

Tell the Lord today how thankful you are that He is always with you and that He will guard you against harm and sickness and crown your life with His blessings because you believe His promises and trust Him for His love and favour to be showered upon you.

DAY SIXTEEN – PSALM 91

DAY SIXTEEN

“Surely, He will save you from the fowler’s snare

and from the deadly pestilence.

He will cover you with His feathers,

and under His wings you will find refuge;

His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

You will not fear the terror of night,

nor the arrow that flies by day,

nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

nor the plague that destroys at midday.”

Psalm 91:3-6

COMMENT

Not only is crime on the increase, threatening our lives from the outside, but disease is also on the increase, killing people from the inside.  You can think of things like AIDS, cancer, heart disease and strokes as well as diseases like TB, malaria, cholera, ebola, bird flu etc, which flare up in different parts of the world every now and then.  People are dying from these diseases all around you.  What guarantee do you have that you will escape them and live a long life?  Apart from living a healthy lifestyle, you have God’s promise that He will protect you from all these diseases if you put your trust in Him.  Have you done that?

PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

Release your faith in God today by thanking Him that He will keep you free from the activities of criminals and from disease because you have made Him your hiding place and you are trusting in His faithfulness every day.

DAY FIFTEEN – PSALM 91

DAY FIFTEEN

“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High

will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress,

my God, in whom I trust.’”

Psalm 91:1,2

COMMENT

We are living in scary times.  Death and destruction are all around us.  Every time we open the newspaper, we read about motor accidents, burglaries, murders, and rapes that come very close to us.  How can we live without fear when no one, not even Christians, seems to be immune to these disasters?  Thank God we have His promise that He is a refuge for everyone who chooses to make Him their dwelling place.  Have you made Him the place where your mind is centred so that when bad things happen all around you, you can still be at peace?  You don’t have to live in fear no matter what happens.  Even if you are the victim of some criminal activity, you can still trust God because He promised that He can turn all your circumstances to your good.

PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

Thank God today for the promise of His presence and protection over your life if you make Him your resting place and your refuge.  He will never abandon you or leave you alone in your time of need.

DAY FOURTEEN – PSALM 103

DAY FOURTEEN

“But from everlasting to everlasting

the Lord’s love is with those who fear Him,

and His righteousness with His children’s children –

with those who keep His covenant

and remember to obey His precepts.”

Psalm 103:17,18

COMMENT

Don’t you love the assurance that God’s love for you is from everlasting to everlasting.  What does that mean?  It means that God loves you from eternity that has no beginning to eternity that has no end.  Wow!  No human being has ever loved you like that.  How many times have you been hurt and disappointed because someone you really loved ran out of love for you?  They walked away and left a terrible void in your life.  God assures you that He will never do that to you.  He cannot because He is love, and His love doesn’t depend on what you are or what you say or do.  His love depends entirely on Him and He will never run out of love or compassion for you, no matter what happens.

PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

Why don’t you praise God today that His love for you has no beginning and no end?  He thought about you, planned your life and loved you from everlasting and will do the same to everlasting.  He wants you to know that love so that every day you will feel loved and secure even if all human beings fail you.
