Monday

Read Psalm 33:12-22

12 Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord;
   happy are the people he has chosen for his own!

13 The Lord looks down from heaven
   and sees all of us humans.
14 From where he rules, he looks down
   on all who live on earth.
15 He forms all their thoughts
   and knows everything they do.

16 A king does not win because of his powerful army;
   a soldier does not triumph because of his strength.
17 War horses are useless for victory;
   their great strength cannot save.

18 The Lord watches over those who obey him,
   those who trust in his constant love.
19 He saves them from death;
   he keeps them alive in times of famine.

20 We put our hope in the Lord;
   he is our protector and our help.
21 We are glad because of him;
   we trust in his holy name.

22 May your constant love be with us, Lord,
   as we put our hope in you.

Think

"The Lord watches over those who obey him, those who trust in his constant love.  He saves them from death; he keeps them alive in times of famine." (Verses 18-19)
To have faith is to trust in God's constant love.  This results in a joyful obedience that knows that what God wants for us is what is best for us.

Pray

Lord help me to trust in your love and in my trust to be obedient to your will.
