Daily Readings – Poor and Needy!

Day 1805: May those who interact with you today be blessed, even though it’s Monday!

Scripture: But I am poor and needy; make haste to me, O God! You are my help and my deliverer; Lord, do not delay. Psalm 70:5

Thoughts/questions: This verse states fundamental truths about God and us. The first – we are poor and needy. The simple truth is we SHOULD be humble, yet we tend to become prideful. Know the truth and that truth WILL set you free – free from false pride and an arrogance which God hates! Always remind yourself that compared to God, you are truly poor and needy and it will keep you humble!

The second truth – God is our help and our deliverer! We are NOT in complete control of our lives. At any time a personal disaster could strike. We certainly can’t control others, and we have minimal control of the events of our lives. God IS our help and deliverer! Maybe we need to see the highlight reel of our guardian angel’s protection of us to fully realize – it is God and God alone who is our help and our deliverer!!!

Suggested prayer: Father God, help me to know my place . . .
