Meditation on Psalm 40 & 54
Lord, I try to wait with patience in my desperation. I need you to hear my cry weak as it is. Draw me out of the destruction that seems to be coming on every side and dragging me underneath waves of grief.
Set my feet on a solid rock. Be my solid rock. Help me know some security in an ever-changing world.
Put a song in my heart and mouth. Let me praise you in the dark. May other see your work in me and trust YOU. Help me trust YOU.
Give me your blessing Good Father of Eternity. Let me not trust in myself but in YOU. Keep me from the lie of self-reliance or reliance on any aspect of creation. Let my trust be in YOU. Multiply my vision of your deeds and wisdom. Let me be in awe of YOU.
Messiah Jesus, YOU submitted to the plan of salvation help me submit to the plan for my life.
Help me to find the story of your deliverance, faithfulness, salvation, steadfast love and speak it to my heart and to the world. LORD, great is your faithfulness, help me see your faithfulness, and then proclaim your faithfulness.
My one hope is in YOU. Do not restrain your mercy but now preserve me in your committed love for me. I see more and more my evils and iniquities. My heart fails in light of my failures.
Crush now the dark lord's plots to kill, steal, and destroy your plan for my life and him who delights to bring me hurt. Demonstrate your great power to save and deliver. Place me under YOUR blood and the true confession of the gospel of peace. Show in me, and my family, your power to save.
LORD, you are great, good, full of grace, ever with me in my grief, and using my grief for ultimate good. Help me seek you. Give me joy in my sorrow. I am poor and without strength. Take thought of me. Be my help and do not delay to come now to me and mine.
All powerful and compassionate ultimate and supreme true Creator and Redeemer hear the deep cries of my soul and heart. Give ear to the great needs of this day.
Destroy the ruthless dark spiritual forces that seek to bring destruction and death delighting in bringing harm. Save your covenant children from their own foolishness.
Be our helper and upholder today living and true LORD of light and life. Overturn the plans of the unbelief and foolishness. Allow your faithfulness to put an end to these plans and establish your good will on earth as in heaven.
Thank you for hearing my cry. Thank you for being always good. Let my eyes see your triumph over the present evil. Act now in ways beyond my imagination to turn back the darkness and shine the light in abundant waves. Shine us now! Shine us now! Awaken us now! Act now! We need YOU! I need YOU!
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies they never come to an end,
They are new every morning, new every morning, great is thy faithfulness oh Lord, Great is your faithfulness. Amen
