Read Psalm 138


Read Psalm 138

      I thank you, Lord, with all my heart;
I sing praise to you before the gods.
2     I face your holy Temple,
bow down, and praise your name
because of your constant love and faithfulness,
because you have shown that your name and your commands are supreme.o
3     You answered me when I called to you;
with your strength you strengthened me.
4     All the kings in the world will praise you, Lord,
because they have heard your promises.
5     They will sing about what you have done
and about your great glory.
6     Even though you are so high above,
you care for the lowly,
and the proud cannot hide from you.
7     When I am surrounded by troubles,
you keep me safe.
You oppose my angry enemies
and save me by your power.
8     You will do everything you have promised;
Complete the work that you have begun.

Think

"Complete the work that you have begun." - Psalm 138:8
This line recalls so many promises of God's being able to finish what God has started; most often it is about restoration, healing and wholeness.
On all those who frustrate you - when it comes to your own weaknesses and struggles remember the bumper sticker:  "Be patient!  God has not finished with me yet."

Pray

Vs 3:  "You answered me when I called to you; with your strength you strengthened me."
Vs 6: "Even though you are so high above, you care for the lowly..."
Vs 7: "When I am surrounded by troubles, you keep me safe."
Vs 8: "You will do everything you have promised; Complete the work that you have begun."
