Seek Him

“I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore, my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices. My flesh also will dwell securely.” Psalm 16:8-9

“When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, ‘Your face, O Lord, I shall seek.’ Do not hide Your face from me, do not turn Your servant away in anger. You have been my help; Do not abandon me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation!” Psalm 27:8-9

“My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing, I will sing praises, even with my soul. Awake, harp and lyre; I will awaken the dawn! I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples, and I will sing praises to You among the nations.” Psalm 108:1-3

Lord, You have been right next to me all along even when I refused to acknowledge Your presence. You were steadfast, faithful and never abandoned me. Because of Your mercies, compassion, and forgiveness, I will never be shaken. You are at my right hand guiding and directing my steps. I will always seek Your face.

You have provided and consoled me in moments of distress. You have been a Rock and Refuge. My heart is no longer anxious, Lord, I know you are already taking care of all the details and have been orchestrating a better future for my family and I. Thank You for your daily portion.

In Jesus’ name, I am singing tunes of joy today. Amen.

A New Song

A New Song

“But I have trusted in Your lovingkindness;

My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

I will sing to the Lord because He has dealt bountifully with me.”

Psalm 13:5-6

“Sing to the Lord a new song; Sing to the Lord, all the earth.

Sing to the Lord, bless His name;

Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.”

Psalm 96:1-2

“Gracious is the Lord, and righteous;

Yes, our God is compassionate. The Lord preserves the simple;

I was brought low, and He saved me. Return to your rest, O my soul,

For the Lord has dealt bountifully with you. You have rescued my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling.

I shall walk before the Lord in the land of the living.”

Psalm 116:5-9

Lord,

I’m so glad I am trusting in You alone.

My heart rejoices when I surrender my plans and seek Your face

for comfort, strength, and wisdom.

I am blessed when I walk in Your presence.

Thank You, Jesus, for Your grace, lovingkindness and unfailing compassion.

You have protected and preserved my life so I may shout to the world a new song.

You rescued me from death and offered me eternal life. How much can I ask?

I am chosen, redeemed and a new creation in Christ.

In Jesus’ name, I boldly and loudly praise His tunes.

Amen.

My Deliverer.

“Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now I will arise,” says the Lord; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.” Psalm 12:5

Lord,

I am standing on solid grounds today. I praise You for your guidance, wisdom, discernment, and protection.

You are my stronghold in time of need and in times of trouble. You are my Deliverer.

I am trusting in Your future so calm my anxious heart today. I will rejoice in You alone.

In Jesus’ name, I boldly praise,

Amen.
