Psalm 22:11 “Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help.”
This verse is especially appropriate to me right now because of the upcoming contentious trial (Wed. the 23rd) with my unhappy, angry, vengeful renter who is busy trying to slander, harm and destroy me.
I know that he is not actually my enemy, it is Satan using him in this spiritual warfare, so I forgive him and pray that God will bless him and bring him into the Kingdom.
Please pause right now and pray with me that God will honor His Word in Psalm 37 “Trust in the Lord and do good….Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring this to pass, He will bring forth your righteous as the light and your judgement as the noon day sun.”
May God be honored in this situation and it’s outcome. In relation to that, let us pray with David in Psalm 86:17, “Grant me a token for good that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed because you, Lord, have helped and comforted me.”
And may the outcome be as it says in Psalm 18:16-18, “He sent from on high, he took me; he drew me out of many waters. He rescued me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the LORD was my support.”]
I praise you, Lord God, that you reach into every aspect of our lives to carry us through whatever challenges come. You take us through the valley of the shadow of death “out into a broad place; [you] rescue me, because [you] delight in me” (Ps. 18:19).
Thank you, Lord, that today you will work this way in my life. Save me from the evil one, from evil people, from evil events and from my own evil within. Help me to keep on the armor, to trust in you that you may shield my head in today’s battle. Amen.
Please remember to pray for the trial on Wednesday the 23rd Thanks, Steve
