Psalm 30:1b “and did not let my enemies gloat over me.”
[You, Lord Jesus, are the Great and Powerful One, the Mighty and Wise One who is my Rock, my Fortress and my Defender. You persistently reach down into the world of sin and evil to protect your children.
You do not want my enemies to gloat over me, so you are consistently at work to deliver me at the right time. You will at times allow me to suffer enough to learn the lessons I need, but it will certainly be far less suffering than I deserve!
I praise you that in the day of trouble you will keep me safe in your dwelling, you will set me high upon a rock and exalt my head above the enemies that surround me (Ps. 27).
I praise you that as I commit my way to you and trust also in you, you will bring the best to pass, you will bring forth the righteousness you’ve given me as the light and my judgment as the noon day sun (Ps. 37).
I praise you that you give us your shield of victory, that you support us with your powerful right arm, that you stoop down from your throne to make us great as your children (Ps. 18).
To you be glory and honor and praise, O Lord God, the Triune One, the Perfect One, the Powerful One, the Most High Ruler of all. To you I bow down today, to you I give honor, to you I rise up to live in obedience. Give me the direction and wisdom you know I need, O Lord, and I praise you now that you will.
