Read Psalm 138

Monday

Read Psalm 138

1 I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart;
   before the “gods” I will sing your praise.
2 I will bow down toward your holy temple
   and will praise your name
   for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,
for you have so exalted your solemn decree
   that it surpasses your fame.
3 When I called, you answered me;
   you greatly emboldened me.
4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord,
   when they hear what you have decreed.
5 May they sing of the ways of the Lord,
   for the glory of the Lord is great.
6 Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly;
   though lofty, he sees them from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
   you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
   with your right hand you save me.
8 The Lord will vindicate me;
   your love, Lord, endures forever—
   do not abandon the works of your hands.

Think

“Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly...” (Verse 6)  We often think that our troubles are too trivial for such a great God - but the Psalmist realizes that god pays attention to our troubles.

Pray

Bring to God your wants and your needs.  Nothing is unimportant to God.
