Summer with the Psalms

Psalm 38 Monday Psalm 38

“O Lord, don’t rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your rage! Your arrows have struck deep, and your blows are crushing me. Because of your anger, my whole body is sick; my health is broken because of my sins. My guilt overwhelms me— it is a burden too heavy to bear. My wounds fester and stink because of my foolish sins. I am bent over and racked with pain. All day long I walk around filled with grief. A raging fever burns within me, and my health is broken. I am exhausted and completely crushed. My groans come from an anguished heart. You know what I long for, Lord; you hear my every sigh. My heart beats wildly, my strength fails, and I am going blind. My loved ones and friends stay away, fearing my disease. Even my own family stands at a distance. Meanwhile, my enemies lay traps to kill me. Those who wish me harm make plans to ruin me. All day long they plan their treachery. But I am deaf to all their threats. I am silent before them as one who cannot speak. I choose to hear nothing, and I make no reply. For I am waiting for you, O Lord. You must answer for me, O Lord my God. I prayed, “Don’t let my enemies gloat over me or rejoice at my downfall.” I am on the verge of collapse, facing constant pain. But I confess my sins; I am deeply sorry for what I have done. I have many aggressive enemies; they hate me without reason. They repay me evil for good and oppose me for pursuing good. Do not abandon me, O Lord. Do not stand at a distance, my God. Come quickly to help me, O Lord my savior.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭38‬:‭1‬-‭22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Reflection on Psalm

Every Morning we have the opportunity to read and dive into Gods word, to Pray and to begin afresh in Gods Presence. In Today’s Psalm, the Psalmist seeks the Lord in confession and pursuit at the beginning of the day. The Psalmist prays “Lord, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God.” Today we get to Pray to our God and seek him in Prayer this Morning too.

With the day before us and God beside us all things are possible through Christ who strengthens us. As we approach the start of the day, if we petition heaven and go to the alter we can be confident in how we approach some of the most difficult areas of our lives.

Without hesitation the Psalmist petitions heaven for aid, for help and for protection in preperation for the day ahead. With much before us all at the beginning of the day we can place and entrust it all to the Lord our God! Like the Psalmist we can cry out “Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior!” In Jesus name. Amen

Let us Pray…

Father please come to us this day and be our Lord and Saviour. Be the Rock of our Salvation and the strength of our day. Bring us through and protect us in all we do in Jesus name. Amen

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

‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:26‬ ‭NLT‬‬
