Read Psalm 138

Monday

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.[b]
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;
   Lord, your love is eternal.
   Complete the work that you have begun.

Think

"With your strength you strengthened me." (Verse 3) . The Psalmist truly recognizes that God gives of God's own strength to help us through what we need help with.

Pray

Lord strengthen me with your strength.
