READ PSALM 119:41-48.
“Let your love, God, shape my life with salvation, exactly as You promised; then I’ll be able to stand up to mockery
because I trusted Your Word. Don’t ever deprive me of truth, not ever—Your commandments are what I depend on.
Oh, I’ll guard with my life what You’ve revealed to me, guard it now, guard it ever; and I’ll stride freely through wide
open spaces as I look for Your truth and your wisdom; then I’ll tell the world what I find, speak out boldly in public,
unembarrassed. I cherish Your commandments—oh, how I love them! —Relishing every fragment of Your counsel.”
—Psalm 119:41-48 (MSG)
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The Psalmist prayed for God’s love to shape him, or form his life. As we stand spiritually formed and
shaped in His Word, we can stand against the mockery of the world. As we totally depend and stand
on the Word, we will be guarded always from all vulnerabilities to sin.
1. A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:
Dear Lord, remind me to guard my heart from the attacks of the enemy.
2. A PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH:
Lord, thank You for missionaries who boldy share Your love and truth. May they and their families
experience heaven’s blessing. Provide new resources to be released to fund missionary efforts around
3. A PRAYER FOR OUR WORLD:
Lord, the harvest is ready, as You have said. May multitudes be anointed and sent into the global
harvest to bring to others what You have revealed to us. Send us to the nations, and also show us
how to reach those You are sending from the nations across our own borders.
