For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone (Psalm 91:11-12 NIV).

Dear God,
there are times when I’m conscious that You have spared me from disaster—
especially when I’m driving.
Thank You for Your protection;
thank You for sending Your angels to intervene.
Keep me closer to You, where I fear no evil.
Amen.

The Psalm Project #31

Bible Open to Psalms

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
love and faithfulness go before you.
Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your presence, O Lord.
They rejoice in your name all day long;
they exult in your righteousness.
For you are their glory and strength,
and by your favor you exalt our horn (Psalm 89:14-17 NIV).

Dear God, I want to be one who walks
in the light of Your presence.
I want to stay so close to you
that we are always connected.
Be foremost in my mind and my heart
that I rejoice in Your Name and proclaim Your righteousness.
You are my glory and my strength. Amen.

The “Daring Greatly” Quote

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt

Righteousness goes before him
and prepares the way for his steps (Psalm 85:13 NIV).

Dear God,
when I read the Psalms,
I catch glimpses of Jesus.
How can people read Your Word
and not know Who the Messiah is?
You foreshadowed His identity
throughout the Old Testament.
Lord, open the eyes of Your people Israel
and bring them into the truth. Amen.

Bible Open to Psalms

Make them [the enemies] like tumbleweed, O my God,
like chaff before the wind (Psalm 83:13 NIV).

Dear God, You have the power to take every obstacle before me
and turn it into dust.
That’s not always Your will;
You desire that I love You more, depend on You completely,
trust You with all my heart.
I desire intimacy with You as well.
Help me draw closer to You whether I am in trouble or everything is cool.
My confidence and security are in You. Amen.

Bible Open to Psalms

Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand,
The son of man you have raised up for yourself (Psalm 80:17 NIV).

Dear Lord God, Asaph knew You would send a Savior,
though it would be a thousand years until his hope was realized.
We know that Jesus will come again,
though we’ve been waiting two thousand years.
Our hope is sure. Come soon, Lord Jesus. Amen.
