Strength!


Psalm 1

1 Blessed is the man
who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
or stand in the way of sinners
or sit in the seat of mockers.

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night.

3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither.
Whatever he does prospers.

4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.

5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.


Almighty God,

Grant us the strength to follow you, and follow the world, or the wicked. Amen!

As my day progressed today and I became tired and discouraged time after time, I began to question why am I continuing on. I asked myself for what purpose do I toil and strive? I began to think about my relationship with God and how much I love the Lord, when I turned to this Psalm. It reminds me that I love the Lord, and I want to do God's will. Friends when you have a day that never seems to end, a day that is complicated beyond belief, when you find yourself asking WHY? This Psalm is for you.

God grant us strength, empower us to continue.
