Thursday: Thanksgiving In Tribulation

Have you ever had a conversation with a negative Nelly? Yep they can be a kill joy.

How about watching the news and all they reported was death and destruction?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by today’s spiritual climate, you will be able to relate to David in Psalm 57.

You know you’re in a pickle when you have to hide in a cave from someone trying to kill you.

Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me,
For my soul takes refuge in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge
Until destruction passes by.

I will cry to God Most High,
To God who accomplishes all things for me.

He will send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches him who tramples upon me.  Selah.
God will send forth His lovingkindness and His truth.

My soul is among lions;
I must lie among those who breathe forth fire,
Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows
And their tongue a sharp sword.

Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.

They have prepared a net for my steps;
My soul is bowed down;
They dug a pit before me;
They themselves have fallen into the midst of it. Selah.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!

Awake, my glory!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.

I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to You among the nations.

For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens
And Your truth to the clouds.

Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory be above all the earth.
