As I did the first two weeks, so also this week I’m allowing God’s Word to speak for itself in these scripture found in the church liturgical calendar for the third week of Lent. The passages are from Psalm 25 and Psalm 106. I’m not adding any of my own thoughts, but I hope you will let these passages impart to your own hearts the thoughts the Holy Spirit wants to share with each one individually.
“Remember, O Lord, Thy tender mercies and Thy loving-kindnesses: for they have been ever of old. Let not mine enemies triumph over me: God of Israel, deliver us out of all our troubles. Unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul: O my God, I trust in Thee; let me not be ashamed. The troubles of my heart are enlarged: oh, bring Thou me out of my distresses. Look upon my affliction and my pain: and forgive all my sins.”
“O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good: for His mercy endures forever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the Lord? Who can show forth His praise? Blessed are they that keep judgment: and he that does righteousness at all times. Remember me, O Lord, in Thy favor toward Thy people. Oh, visit me with Thy salvation.”
