10/31 Psalm 132:1
A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. LORD, remember David and all that he suffered. 2 He took an oath before the LORD. He vowed to the Mighty One of Israel, 3 “I will not go home; I will not let myself rest. 4 I will not let my eyes sleep nor close my eyelids in slumber 5 until I find a place to build a house for the LORD, a sanctuary for the Mighty One of Israel.”
David knew that the Lord was first and that without Him he could do nothing. Come into His sanctuary, into His presence and spend time with Him. Jesus is Lord and He is seeking time with you.
10/31 Psalm 132:1
10/30 Psalm 131:3
O Israel, put your hope in the LORD — now and always.
Jesus is our only hope. No government, no amount of money, no birth, no other death nothing can give us hope, lasting hope except Jesus. He comes to you and me from the Father. He is our bright and guiding light. Jesus is our salvation. He gives us a relationship with God the Father. He is Lord and HE is our only hope.
10/29 Psalm 131:1
A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. A psalm of David. LORD, my heart is not proud; my eyes are not haughty. I don’t concern myself with matters too great or awesome for me. 2 But I have stilled and quieted myself, just as a small child is quiet with its mother. Yes, like a small child is my soul within me.
When we quiet our heart it is amazing at how loudly the Lord speaks. Listen to Jesus. He wants to be with you. He is seeking to tell you the right way to go, the right thing to do and how much He loves you. Jesus is Lord.
10/28 Psalm 130:7
O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is unfailing love and an overflowing supply of salvation. 8 He himself will free Israel from every kind of sin.
We talk about being free. We strive to be free. Yet only in the Lord Jesus Christ by His salvation and forgiveness can I find real freedom. Jesus breaks the chains of sin, gives us a new heart and a new way of living. Jesus is Lord.
10/27 Psalm 130:6
I long for the Lord more than sentries long for the dawn, yes, more than sentries long for the dawn.
I yearn for the very presence of the Lord. I want to see Him to be with Him to be in His physical presence. This is more than a passing thought. My heart literally aches to be with the Lord.
10/26 Psalm 130:5
I am counting on the LORD; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.
We can count on Jesus. Don’t worry the Lord is taking care of you and trust that this is true. We can count on Jesus.
10/25 Psalm 130:3-4
LORD, if you kept a record of our sins, who, O Lord, could ever survive? 4 But you offer forgiveness, that we might learn to fear you.
We live under the weight of sin. Jesus gives us forgiveness. We need forgiveness. People that we come into contact with need forgiveness. We are forgiven and we are called to forgive. Jesus is Lord.
10/24 Psalm 130:1-2
A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. From the depths of despair, O LORD, I call for your help. 2 Hear my cry, O Lord. Pay attention to my prayer.
In your time of trouble you can cry out to the Lord. Jesus will hear you and He will save you. He is Lord of all including your need. Pray many times each day. Jesus is listening to you.
10/23 Psalm 129:5-7
May all who hate Jerusalem be turned back in shameful defeat. 6 May they be as useless as grass on a rooftop, turning yellow when only half grown, 7 ignored by the harvester, despised by the binder. 8 And may those who pass by refuse to give them this blessing: “The LORD’s blessings be upon you; we bless you in the LORD’s name.”
We are blessed in Jesus. He brings the Father’s blessing to us. Do not be anxious for Jesus has overcome the world and He will not leave you.
10/22 Psalm 129:3-4
My back is covered with cuts, as if a farmer had plowed long furrows. 4 But the LORD is good; he has cut the cords used by the ungodly to bind me.
Life is hard and has many troubles but Jesus will walk through each one of them with us. He will not desert us. He will not throw us overboard when we fail. Jesus loves you and has a good plan for your life.
10/21 Psalm 129:1-2
A song for the ascent to Jerusalem. From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me — let Israel now say — 2 from my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me, but they have never been able to finish me off.
The world is seeking to destroy you. Jesus will not permit this. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and He will take care of you. Jesus is Lord.
10/20 Psalm 128:4-6
That is the LORD’s reward for those who fear him. 5 May the LORD continually bless you from Zion. May you see Jerusalem prosper as long as you live. 6 May you live to enjoy your grandchildren. And may Israel have quietness and peace.
Jesus brings peace to our life. He is peace. Know the Lord for in Him we have peace and joy. Go to Jesus in troubled times and He will reinforce His peace in you.
