Devos of the Week: Psalm 16

“Keep me safe, my God for in you I take refuge.”  I’ve been thinking about this simple prayer. Each day many pray for safety for self, family and friends; but it is vastly different from different lips. For some it is just nice words to say in the midst of a wealthy, well supplied life, for many others it is a deep cry for justice, for bread, for God’s intervention in spite of overwhelming odds.  What does safety mean for you? Lord Jesus, as I pray for personal safety, let me actively work toward a safe world for all. Amen.

Devos of the Week: Psalm 13

“How long, Lord…How long will you hide your face from me?” Sometimes simple prayers are the best, the most honest, the most desperate for God. In recent weeks, with news stories, social media, and most unsettling events, I find myself quieted before God and crying out with simple prayers.  What is your simple prayer today?  “Though we do not see You sometimes, cause us to trust in your unfailing love and salvation.”

Devo of the Week: Psalm 13:1, 6

“How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? … I will sing to the Lord…” Only six verses in this short Psalm, yet an emotional road trip from feelings of God’s abandonment to feelings of confidence in His blessings. It is natural to doubt and question, yet our prayers that honestly bring such to God will most often lead us to an assurance of His bountiful love and blessing in our lives. How short would your psalm be these days? What would you need for God’s assurance? Hear our prayer Lord Jesus and lead us to song!
