LORD, protect me! I will hide in You from those who want to harm me, then, I will not be alone in this battle.
LORD, forgive me! If I have caused this or done something wrong ~~ Forgive me!
If I have harmed a friend or taken what is not mine mine ~~ Forgive me!
If I have done any of this then let the enemy win.
LORD, fight for me!
You are my judge and my shield. You save those whose heart is fully attached to Yours. Guide all of my ways, all of my days. Save my soul!
I have repented of my sins unlike those who refuse to think they have done anything wrong. You fight against those who are evil, wicked, unrepentant, and those who lie. They will fall into their own pit.
Your righteousness demands my thanks! I will praise Your name!
Sunday Psalms are the Psalms in my own words. You can click on the Psalm number at the top to read it from theEnglish Standard Version.
What stands between us and totally serving our LORD? For me, it is often what I want to happen. Sometimes, I want the credit for volunteering to do a service. Sometimes, I want others to see what a great job I‘ve done. Obviously, one can see that an “I infection” is creating a barrier between us (me and JESUS). Since I’m being totally honest here let me say, I’m also totally aware that I am not giving Him total control of all parts in this life.
So then what happens? How do I make the necessary changes? Through lots of prayer, asking forgiveness (sometimes begging forgiveness), knowing and claiming His Word. Matt. 6:33 can be the focus for a prayer like this. Are we truly seeking His Kingdom and His Righteousness? Then we can serve Him and know how He wants us to serve Him.
Understand that not just “I infections” get between us and really serving Him. It could also be family, friends, spouse, career, home, “stuff”, other addictions…
He wants a strong relationship with us (through prayer and knowing His Word) so when He has a service opportunity for us we are ready and willing to do what HE needs!
