Psalm 3:8 “From the LORD comes deliverance.”
[From you alone, Lord, by you alone, for your glory alone comes deliverance. “He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. The LORD watches over all who love him…” (Ps.145, 19,20a).
We must look to you, LORD, the great I AM, the King of glory, the Lord of all, for deliverance–not to people, to our own efforts or some other source. Forgive me for looking first elsewhere for help–to medicine, to friends, to influential people, to money–before coming to you. You may use these to help me, but I must first come to you.
You are the Source of all good, the Creator of all existence, the Sustainer of all life. Praise be to you that you are the answer and the Answerer; you are the Way, the Truth and the Life. You are the Lover and LIght of my life. Help me to keep you as the focus of my existence!]
“May your blessing be on your people.”
[You are the One true source of blessing—genuine happiness and true joy come only from you—all other sources are temporary and inadequate. And many are destructive, addictive and harmful. With you, however, is the fullness of joy combined with the freedom to live in ever-growing obedience to Truth.
You are worthy of worship, Lord Jesus, and I give you honor, praise and glory now; I give you obedience, respect and joy.
May you be glorified and honored this day in me and before me. Bless me with reminders to check in with you at each juncture for your direction and wisdom that I may join you in your great plan to reach the world.]
