Psalms 110-118

God rules.  Even over death, God reigns and brings life to those who come to know Him and love Him (Psalms 110-118).

And even in our earthly lives, God's perfect faithfulness triumphs over our attempts at faithfulness.

God's love is big enough and powerful enough to reach us, to save us, to transform us, and to sustain us right now- no matter where we are, how much we know or don't know about Him, or what we've been doing, or what we've done up to this point.  

God is here with open and forgiving arms ready to work in our lives and fill us with His purpose right now.

I say that today because I find myself weighed down by circumstances and a heavy heart.  Maybe you can relate.  

And yet, God reminds me that whatever the news, He is in my life and working miracles through my circumstances.

For you, Lord, have delivered me from death,

    my eyes from tears,

    my feet from stumbling,

that I may walk before the Lord
    in the land of the living.

Good news or bad news, I know God uses our present circumstances for good and His glory.

I will not die but live,

    and will proclaim what the Lord has done.

God is always up to something good and purposeful.

In Christ, our circumstances and our lives are full of His purpose and hope.  

I am holding on to my faith for dear life, sure of God's faithfulness. 

I am going to pray for God to open my heart to the ways He needs to use me in this situation to help others.  And, I am going to keep praising Him for all the sweet and amazing things He continues to do!  

God has the everlasting word.

A prayer for today-

Dear God,

Thank You for filling me with Your everlasting promises and Your purpose.

I give my circumstances to You.  Work them Lord, for Your good.  Open my heart to the ways You need to use me through this to save lives with Your love and glorify You.

I pray for ___________________ today.  Fill him/her/them with Your promises and Your peace.  Bless _________________ and help ___________ know You are holding him/her/them right now.

I praise You, Lord, and all the works of Your hands!

In Jesus' holy name I pray,

Peace of Christ,
