I’m working on a new approach to my blog series this year. Personally, I am walking through the Psalms (as I have done many times). These Scriptures have brought tremendous comfort and guidance to so many for so long, so each week this year I will share a couple of brief devotional thoughts from the Psalms. As you read through them, I urge you to reflect, pray, and apply these bits of encouragement.

Reflection 1
Today and every day — May what we say, how we say what we say, and what we think and meditate on align with God’s plans, will, and ways.
“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” — Psalm 19:14

Reflection 2
Two prayers, and one affirmation; powerful all three!
“May the Lord answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed… Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” — Psalm 20:1, 4, 7

Reflection 3
You may feel alone and powerless — but you are never alone. God is with you always, and you are not powerless because the all-powerful God came to you, lives in you, and will fight for you.
“Be exalted in your strength, Lord; we will sing and praise your might.” — Psalm 21:13
