Psalms — Psalm 86 – Our Great God!

Day 2691: I trust your first Monday in March is a truly great one!!!

Scripture: Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me; for I am afflicted and needy. Preserve my soul, for I am a godly man; save Your servant who trusts in You. Make glad the soul of Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in lovingkindness to all who call upon You. 

There is no one like You among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like Yours. All nations whom You have made shall come and worship before You, O Lord, and they shall glorify Your name. For You are great and do wondrous deeds; You alone are God. Teach me Your way, O Lord; I will walk in Your truth; unite my heart to fear Your name. 

O God, arrogant men have risen up against me, and a band of violent men have sought my life, and they have not set You before them. But You, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth. Show me a sign for good, that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed, because You, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me.  Excerpts from Psalm 86

Thoughts/questions: I’ll repeat how David describes our great God! Comforter, helper, truthful, abundant in lovingkindness, slow to anger, gracious, merciful, does wondrous deeds, great, none can compare, ready to forgive, good, and makes glad the souls of His servants! Yes, that is our great God!

Suggested prayer: O Lord, You are great and greatly to be praised . . .
