Today’s word comes from Psalm 39 which you can read here. Psalm 39 NKJV – Prayer for Wisdom and Forgiveness – To – Bible Gateway
Humility resonates throughout scripture. God loves a humble heart. So it is no surprise that we see the humbleness here with which David starts his prayer. He kept silent and when he did speak it was to God. He asked that God would help him to number his days. He wanted God’s wisdom to know the shortness and frailty of life.
Like David did, we have to trust God in His correction for our sin. Our hope is in Him. Don’t sin with our rebuttals in anger to others. Hold our peace. Bridle that tongue. When we do talk, let it be humbly with the Lord.
We are so thankful for Your mercy. We ask for Your great mercy in any area we may have failed You. Help us to get back on track, where need be, and to live the life that You have ordained for us to live. We want to be in the perfect center of Your will. Thank You for deliverance from sin. We pray for relief from any and all affliction. We know that You chastise those You love (Revelation 3:19) and no correction seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Thank You, that Your correction produces righteousness and peace (Hebrews 12:11). Thank You for Your great love and mercy. We plead the blood of Jesus over us and ask that You would forgive us for any failings and draw us nearer to Your side. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
