Read Psalm 119:49-56.
“Remember what You said to me, Your servant—I hang on to these words for dear life! These words hold me up in bad times; yes, Your promises rejuvenate me. The insolent ridicule me without mercy, but I don’t budge from Your revelation. I watch for Your ancient landmark words, and know I’m on the right track. But when I see the wicked ignore Your directions, I’m beside myself with anger. I set Your instructions to music and sing them as I walk this pilgrim way. I meditate on Your name all night, God, treasuring Your revelation, O God. Still, I walk through a rain of derision because I live by Your Word and counsel.” —Psalm 119:49-56 (MSG)
Devotional Thought for Today:
We need to constantly remind ourselves of the life-giving promises of God. His promises rejuvenate us despite the ridicule the world tries to bring on us. Let us make melody unto Him, and our souls will be encouraged in Him. Let it be our practice to meditate on His name and treasure the revelation of His words.
- A PRAYER FOR MY LIFE:
Dear Lord, revive me through Your great promises.
- A PRAYER FOR THE CHURCH:
Lord, rejuvenate Your servants. May local church staff and volunteers—and their families—feel revived and anointed. May national Foursquare staff and teams sense a renewed calling and passion. May the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel board of directors receive wisdom and demonstrate godly discernment.
- A PRAYER FOR OUR WORLD:
Lord, reveal Yourself to those who are not following Your directions. Bring righteousness into goverments of the nations, integrity in justice systems, protection against trafficking in ports of entry, and healing into broken families.
