To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy, when I cry to you for help, when I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.

Do not drag me off with the wicked, with the workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors while evil is in their hearts. Give to them according to their work and according to the evil of their deeds; give to them according to the work of their hands; render them their due reward. Because they do not regard the works of the Lord or the work of his hands, he will tear them down and build them up no more. (Psalm 28:1-6)

We can sense the psalmist that penned (Psalm 28) had a lot going on in his life and was extremely desperate to hear from God. He felt isolated and alone, and he needed to know that God was there listening to him. Can we relate to this psalmist cry today? Do we find ourselves feeling surrounded by all sorts of difficult people and difficult situations?

Friends, maybe you are feeling as desperate as the psalmist of (Psalm 28) today. Do you need help today? God is waiting on you to let Him be your strength, to be your shield, to be your refuge. He will be your strong tower if you allow Him to be! Would you pray this prayer with me:

‘To you, O Lord, I call; my rock, be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me, I become like those who go down to the pit. Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy, when I cry to you for help, when I lift up my hands toward your most holy sanctuary.

Do not drag me off with the wicked, with the workers of evil, who speak peace with their neighbors while evil is in their hearts. Give to them according to their work and according to the evil of their deeds; give to them according to the work of their hands; render them their due reward. Because they do not regard the works of the Lord or the work of his hands, he will tear them down and build them up no more.

Blessed be the Lord! For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

The Lord is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed. Oh, save your people and bless your heritage! Be their shepherd and carry them forever. In Jesus Name, Amen.’

God Bless and have a Blessed Day, Friends <><
