“I stood up for justice and the right; don’t leave me to the mercy of my oppressors. Take the side of Your servant, good
God; don’t let the godless take advantage of me. I can’t keep my eyes open any longer, waiting for You to keep Your
promise to set everything right. Let Your love dictate how You deal with me; teach me from Your textbook on life. I’m
Your servant—help me understand what that means, the inner meaning of Your instructions. It’s time to act, God;
they’ve made a shambles of Your revelation! Yea-Saying God, I love what You command, I love it better than gold and
gemstones; Yea-Saying God, I honor everything You tell me, I despise every deceitful detour.”
—Psalm 119:121-128 (MSG)
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT FOR TODAY
When we stand up for justice and the right, God comes to our aid. God is always with us, and
therefore we will not be taken advantage of. God’s promises always come to pass, although we
humanly sometimes think that His answers are delaying. His marvelous love and His words will always
define how He deals with us. As we walk with God in deep intimacy, He will lead us into deep things
related to His holy instructions. God deals with people who dishonor His truth in a timely manner. We
must honor God’s every command and despise deception.

2. A PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH:
Lord, I pray for unity of vision, collaboration of mission and relationship-building amongst
pastors and ministry leaders. May the Holy Spirit stir our hearts and minds to a fresh commitment to
continue the work of the gospel and to bring revival that breaks down all barriers.
3. A PRAYER FOR OUR WORLD:
Lord, open the eyes and hearts of people trapped in false religions and ideologies. For those living
trapped in fear and isolation, invade their world with love. Let people devastated by world events feel
the covering of Your presence and strength.
