Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Psalm 86: 1-8. God is waiting for our cry out to Him. In our troubled and difficult times, He wants to be our savior. Come before Him on a bent knee for yourself or in intercession for others!

Hear me, Lord, and answer me,

    for I am poor and needy.
Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
    save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord,
    for I call to you all day long.
Bring joy to your servant, Lord,
    for I put my trust in you.

fall scents for your home

You, Lord, are forgiving and good,
    abounding in love to all who call to you.
Hear my prayer, Lord;
    listen to my cry for mercy.
When I am in distress, I call to you,
    because you answer me.

Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;
    no deeds can compare with yours.

Listening for our cry of mercy

God is just waiting for us to ask for His help, and He will be there with love and forgiveness for you. From the beginning, He has planned to offer us forgiveness and mercy from His bountiful amounts.

David reminds God in this scripture that He is David’s God. That without God’s protection and mercy, that his trust is in vain. David’s joy is found in God’s deliverance, love, and forgiveness. David trusts in God’s inability to change which gives him confidence and peace, knowing that he is secure in God!

God’s unfailing love and mercy are confirmed when David says, “I call to you, because you answer me.” Today, call out to God for yourself, those around you and the world. That God will deliver and draw those people unto Him!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

I join with David in thanking You God that You are my God. No matter the fears and concerns that swirl around me, I can stand firm in Your faithfulness and forgiveness. Heal this world God, draw all men unto You for the glory of Your kingdom!

In Jesus Name,
