Psalm 7:9 “O righteous God, who searches minds and hearts,”
[You, Lord God, know the full truth about every person, nothing is hidden from you, as you discern our thoughts, desires, motives and intents right to the bottom of our hearts. Therefore Your judgments are fully informed and righteous, true and just.
To you be praise, honor and glory for your perfect, pure, powerfully positive heart, leading you to act in full knowledge and wisdom, in love and grace to do what is right and best.]
“bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure.”
[Praise you that this is your desire, Lord, to end evil and violence, setting limits on them now, and then at the right time locking them up in the lake of fire for good.
You are our only hope in the darkness of this world, in the flood of evil, in the failure of human hearts, in the power of the devil to deceive and delude. You are Light and Love and Life in the midst of darkness, despair and death. Praise you for your goodness and the hope you bring.]
Psalm 7:10 “My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.”
[Yes, you are our help and hope, for you are the Great and Final Authority, you are the Most High over all creation. You have the last word in every situation; no one can counter your judgments.
And in your authority, we are safe, for in your love you have shielded us through the blood of Christ, you freed us from Satan, sin and self. We can rest, safe in your shadow, for you are the Almighty One, undefeatable, all wise and the Victor in the end of every situation.
I praise you now, O Lord Jesus, for the protection you provide: in the past, in our present and in the future. You are worthy of worship, worthy of our total obedience, worthy of our full affection. May you be honored in my life today in attitude, thought, word and practice.]
