Read Psalm 118:5-9


Tuesday

Read Psalm 118:5-9

5     In my distress I called to the Lord;
he answered me and set me free.
6     The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid;
what can anyone do to me?
7     It is the Lord who helps me,
and I will see my enemies defeated.
8     It is better to trust in the Lord
than to depend on human beings.
9     It is better to trust in the Lord
than to depend on human leaders.

Think

The end of this Psalm is a celebration of victory - it would have been prayed by Jesus and his disciples during the final week of his life.

Jesus death on the cross - his obedience to God's call - indicates complete trust in God for justice.

Pray

It is better to trust in the LORD than to depend on human beings.

Lord help me to trust in you 100%; to find my identity and my joy in you.  So that I would be a blessing to others.
