Good morning brothers and sisters. Day 40 how great is that! We have spent 40 days reading God's Word and that is where it starts. Knowledge and discernment come as your relationship with the Lord grows. He gives as He sees you need it. It is amazing. And most of the reading is 2 minutes or less. So don't say that you don't have time to start your day with the Lord. He is blessing us in so many ways.
1- I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me, and heard my cry.
2- He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock and established my steps.
3- He has put a new song in my mouth- Praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.
4- Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5- Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done; and Your thoughts towards us cannot be recounted to You in order; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6- Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, my ears You have opened, burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.
7- Then I said, "Behold I come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me.
8- I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart.
9- I have proclaimed the good news of righteousness in the great assembly; Indeed, I do not restrain my lips, O Lord, You Yourself know.
10- I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great assembly.
11- Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O Lord; let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.
12- For innumerable evils have surrounded me; my iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up. They are more than the hairs of my head; therefore my heart fails me.
13- Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me; O Lord, make haste to help me!
14- Let them be ashamed and brought to mutual confusion who seek to destroy my life; let them be driven backward and brought to dishonor who wish me evil.
15- Let them be confounded because of their shame, who say to me, "Aha, aha!"
16- Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; let such as love Your salvation say continually, "The Lord be magnified!"
17- But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinks upon me. You are my help and my deliverer; de not delay, O my God.
Have a blessed day! Unite children of God, unite.
