21 Praise be to the Lord,Psalm 31:21-24 (NIV)
for he showed me the wonders of his love
when I was in a city under siege.
22 In my alarm I said,
“I am cut off from your sight!”
Yet you heard my cry for mercy
when I called to you for help.
23 Love the Lord, all his faithful people!
The Lord preserves those who are true to him,
but the proud he pays back in full.
24 Be strong and take heart,
all you who hope in the Lord.
O God, my Rock and Refuge,
It is far too easy these days to look around and fear, despair, grumble, or groan. But today, Lord, I choose to focus on You, on Your love, and on Your faithfulness. I choose to remember the ways that You have provided for me and delivered me through other storms. I thank You. I praise You not only for Your provision, but for Your loving character that drives everything You do. Even in those moments when I may feel that I have been cut off from Your sight, I know that You are still with me. You are still working. You are still listening to my cries for deliverance and mercy. You hear my cries for help and healing. Lord, help me to trust You and to be faithful to Your call. Help me to be strong and take heart. Help me to put my hope in You and not in the things that I can see and understand.
I pray all these things in the name of Your Son, who gave His life that we may have life. Amen.
