July 12: God is Israel’s Protector

Psalm 6

O Lord, do not rebuke me in Your anger, 
nor chasten me in Your hot displeasure.

Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am weak; 
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are troubled.

My soul also is greatly troubled; 
but You, O Lord—how long?

Return, O Lord, deliver me! 
Oh, save me for Your mercies’ sake!

For in death there is no remembrance of You; 
in the grave who will give You thanks?

I am weary with my groaning; 
all night I make my bed swim; 
I drench my couch with my tears.

My eye wastes away because of grief; 
it grows old because of all my enemies.

Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; 
for the Lord has heard the voice of my weeping.

The Lord has heard my supplication; 
the Lord will receive my prayer.

Let all my enemies be ashamed and greatly troubled; 
let them turn back and be ashamed suddenly.

In our humanistic perspective of life, we think God saves us for our sake.  Yes He loves us and has a plan for our lives, but ultimately our salvation and purpose in life is to fill the earth with the knowledge of His glory…through praise and worship.  Consider that even in Hell people will recognize that He is God, but they surely don’t give Him thanks.

PRAY THAT EVERY LOVER AND FOLLOWER OF YESHUA WILL MAKE PRAISE THEIR #1 PRIORITY AND EVANGELISM #2.
