“But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy.” The word, “refuge,” is defined as “a condition of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger, or trouble.” The Psalmist say, God will be that for his people. What pursuers, dangers, or troubles are you facing in your life right now? What would it take to change your troubles into joy? What would it take to get you to sing? What would you sing? Cause me to rejoice and sing O Lord, as you provide safety and shelter in my life. Amen.
|“I will call to mind the deeds of the Lord; I will remember your wonders of old.” Part of seeking the Lord in the day of trouble (vs 2), is calling to mind and remembering the deeds of God in the past. Why is it important to remember God’s deeds in the past when facing current times of trouble? What are you facing these days? How might remembering God’s wonders of old help your prayer and your life? I will meditate on all your work and muse on your mighty deeds, O God. Amen.|
