Today's Verse: Psalm 55:16-17

Friday, April 5, 2019

I call to God, and the LORD saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice.
— Psalm 55:16-17

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Wow, this Psalm of confidence in God suddenly has a much more powerful ring to it after remembering the resurrection of Christ! God does save us. God does listen to our voice. We can be sure he both hears and acts to bring salvation for us. The only question is whether we call out to God evening, morning and noon trusting in his response?

My Prayer...

Abba Father, I have burdens on my heart about things in my own life that need your grace and power. Please hear my voice and my heart as I share these concerns with you... In addition, dear Father, please place your loving touch on the following people for whom I'm concerned... Thank you for hearing me and saving me. In the name of my Savior, Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
