Read Psalm 71:1-6


Monday

Read Psalm 71:1-6

Lord, I have come to you for protection;
never let me be defeated!
2Because you are righteous, help me and rescue me.
Listen to me and save me!
3Be my secure shelter
and a strong fortressy to protect me;
you are my refuge and defence.
4My God, rescue me from the wicked,
from the power of those who are cruel and evil.
5Sovereign Lord, I put my hope in you;
I have trusted in you since I was young.
6I have relied on you all my life;
you have protectedz me since the day I was born.
I will always praise you.

Think

The Psalmist expresses trust in God...
"I put my hope in you; I have trusted in you since I was young.  I have relied on you all my life..." (Verse 5)
Do we trust God as much as we should?

Pray

I have trusted in you since I was young.
In prayer, call to mind the times that God has helped you through seemingly impossible situations.  Pray for the memory, the faith to carry on trusting.
