Psalms 72-77

We have the ultimate Counselor in God.  

Psalms 72-77 point to how good and refreshing it is to remember all God has done in our lives, His past workings.  As we reflect, we find hope and renewed trust.  

We also may be pleasantly surprised to find some counsel and inspiration for our present circumstances.

I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago...

You are the God who performs miracles;
    you display your power among the peoples.

When you look back on how God has worked in your life, what comes to mind?  What have you learned about how God works from past experiences?  And how might something God has already done, either in your life or in someone else's, help you now and in the future?

God is such a great teacher because He teaches us with His love.

You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will take me into glory...

My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is the strength of my heart
    and my portion forever.

A prayer for today-

Dear God,

Thank You for Your counsel.  Thank You for all the wonderful ways You work in my life and in the world.  

Forgive me my weaknesses, Lord, and all the ways I drift from You.

Use me to show and share Your great love for Your people.

It is so good to be near, You, and hear and know Your guidance.  Help me live out Your will for my life.  Fill me with Your direction.

In the name of Jesus I pray,

Peace of Christ,
