There are some folks who seem to go through life with no challenges coming their way. Not ever. If you’re one of those, it is unlikely that you’ll relate well with today’s psalm. As a king, David had his share of enemies. He faced challenges aplenty. This psalm is thought to be a prayer that the king often used to pray himself and recommended others who were facing challenges to pray as well.
The overall message of this psalm is that our great needs should drive us to pray to the great God who alone can deliver us.
No matter what challenges you or your loved ones are facing today, may this reading from The Passion Translation encourage you.
P.S. I’ve heard back from some folks who say they listen to these readings and prayer in the morning, while others have mentioned that they use them as a way to wrap up their day. I’d love to hear how you’re using these so I can adjust the readings accordingly.
