Psalm 11

To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

In the Lord I put my trust;
How can you say to my soul,
“Flee as a bird to your mountain”?
For look! The wicked bend their bow,
They make ready their arrow on the string,
That they may shoot secretly at the upright in heart.
If the foundations are destroyed,
What can the righteous do?

The Lord is in His holy temple,
The Lord’s throne is in heaven;
His eyes behold,
His eyelids test the sons of men.
The Lord tests the righteous,
But the wicked and the one who loves violence His soul hates.
Upon the wicked He will rain coals;
Fire and brimstone and a burning wind
Shall be the portion of their cup.

For the Lord is righteous,
He loves righteousness;
His countenance beholds the upright.

I begin another day coming to You in prayer. When I have nothing to say…nothing that’s moving me to pray…thank You for this opportunity to simply pray Your Word. Already I have experienced the blessing of just reading Your Word and praying it. I’ve discovered that there is a lot being said about rejoicing and there’s a lot about trusting in the Psalms. Today, I pray that prayer of trust once again. I make a statement regarding Your righteousness today. Because You are right, I am going to trust You. Forgive me for trusting my own plan and for seeking my will when You alone are right always.
Lord, I pray for those joining me in the journey. Encourage them. Lift them up. Turn their focus on You just as You are doing in my own life each and every day. May it all be for Your glory.
