“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God and having Jesus as my Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sins to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gifts to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
Vindicate me, my God,
The your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast wilderness. These forty years the your God has been with you, and you have not lacked anything.
Today's Psalm seems the Part 2 of Psalm 42 which we had the past two days. Both Psalms give us lots of encouragements!
As the whole world has been attacked severely by lots of disaster, what we need to do is to count God's blessings of how He has been providing for you as in today's Deuteronomy when Moses reminded his people of God's provision all through their 40 years in the wilderness!
May we follow the direction of today's Psalm to come more closer to God, come into His presence everyday and to sing praises to Him. You will surely be lifted up from darkness and fear into light and hope. Because Jesus is the one who will fight for you!
This does not mean that we as Christians will never be under attack, but even if we are being attacked, we can still praise the Lord each day and have that light of Christ in our faces because Jesus is our Lord and King. And in all circumstances, we can witness the glory of our Lord!
