Free & Fit - Summer with the Psalms - Friday 21st June Psalm 21

Summer with the Psalms

Friday 21st June Psalm 21



“How the king rejoices in your strength, O Lord! He shouts with joy because you give him victory. For you have given him his heart’s desire; you have withheld nothing he requested. Interlude You welcomed him back with success and prosperity. You placed a crown of finest gold on his head. He asked you to preserve his life, and you granted his request. The days of his life stretch on forever. Your victory brings him great honor, and you have clothed him with splendor and majesty. You have endowed him with eternal blessings and given him the joy of your presence. For the king trusts in the Lord. The unfailing love of the Most High will keep him from stumbling. You will capture all your enemies. Your strong right hand will seize all who hate you. You will throw them in a flaming furnace when you appear. The Lord will consume them in his anger; fire will devour them. You will wipe their children from the face of the earth; they will never have descendants. Although they plot against you, their evil schemes will never succeed. For they will turn and run when they see your arrows aimed at them. Rise up, O Lord, in all your power. With music and singing we celebrate your mighty acts.”


‭‭Psalms‬ ‭21‬:‭1‬-‭13‬ ‭NLT‬‬



Pastor Tim’s Reflections


What do you hold onto in your heart? Do you have deep dark desires which you hope come true? The Psalmist for today ensures us that if we have good intentions then God will respond positively to our hearts with the fulfillment of what we desire. The contrast is quite different and leads to death and destruction.


Our hearts condition may not be in itself bad, but what we long for, what we strive for and what we seek in ourselves may redirect our hearts into negative patterns. We really have to meditate, memories and make Gods word our breastplate of righteousness. We have to put on the Full Armor of God to Guard our hearts.


Today we have a decision to make, not for a Declaration of Independence, but instead for a declaration of God dependence. That we feed our hearts desires with Gods word, to correct any evil or wicked way in us! Praise God today that his word, his heart and his desires are better than our own, the best for all of us and fulfilled in following Jesus Christ! Hallelujah!


Prayer


Father please go ahead, behind and with us today. Declare us yours, make our hearts Holy and our ways Righteous to follow only you. Be our guide, council and our strength, show us your countenance, be sovereign ruling in our lives and ordering our steps according to your good, pleasing and purposeful will in Jesus name. Amen


“So it is good to wait quietly for salvation from the Lord.”

‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬
