Prayer for Today

PSALM 34:1-9
The Happiness of Those Who Trust in God
A Psalm of David When He Pretended Madness Before Abimelech, Who Drove Him Away, and He Departed.
    1      I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
    2      My soul shall make its boast in the LORD;
          The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
    3      Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
          And let us exalt His name together.

    4      I sought the LORD, and He heard me,
          And delivered me from all my fears.
    5      They looked to Him and were radiant,
          And their faces were not ashamed.
    6      This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him,
          And saved him out of all his troubles.
    7      The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him,
          And delivers them.

    8      Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good;
          Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
    9      Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints!
          There is no want…

When we call on God, we expect Him to answer us and help us. Sometimes, we are so confident that He will or should help us that we forget how amazing it is that He interacts with us in the first place.
Psalm 113 reminds us that God is beyond our comprehension. The psalm praises the power and glory of God, who is “high above all nations.” God isn’t just ruling over the earth, though. His realm of power extends even “above the heavens”(Psa 113:4). Both earthly and heavenly powers are subject to Him.
His power is astounding, but what is most confounding is His nature and character. Psalm 113 points out that even in His power, God is still concerned with the plights of those far below: “W…
