Psalm 34:4 (King James Version) “I sought the Lord, and He heard me and delivered me from all my fears.”
Fear of rejection makes me dishonest with others. Fear of future lack makes me hoard. Fear of missing out makes me greedy and gullible to advertising. I’ll seek You, Lord, because I long to be delivered from my fears and resulting sin!
Psalm 73:23b* “You hold me by my right hand.”
Thank You, Father, for holding me up when I would fall.
Psalm 73:24* “You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.”
Thank You for guiding me through this life. Oh may I pay more attention to Your guidance! Thank You for this promise to receive me into glory when my life on earth is over.
Psalm 73:28* “But it is good for me to draw near to God, that I may declare all Your works.”
Thank You for drawing near to me and letting me come near to You. Please teach me to trust You more, and please open my eyes to opportunities to declare Your works. Amen.
Psalm 119:134* “Redeem me from the oppression of man that I may keep Your precepts.”
How many times have I let emotional pressure from other people cause me to make poor or even sinful choices? Too many, I’m sure! Please redeem me, Lord
Ps. 127:1 (New Living Translation) “Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good.”
Unless God commissions and approves what I do, my own efforts will be wasted, and I won’t accomplish a desired result. Lord, let me always seek and listen to Your guidance instead of doing what I want or what I think would be best.
*New King James Version
