Open the Grace {Day Eighteen} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

Continuing in prayer, today we look at Psalm 115. Traditionally, Psalms 113-114 would have been sung before the Passover meal, and Psalms 115-118 were sung afterwards.

These are the Psalms scholars believe Jesus and His disciples sang after The Last Supper:

“And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭26:30‬ ‭ESV‬‬

///

“Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.

Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?” Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.

But their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands.

They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see.

They have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell.

They have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but cannot walk, nor can they utter a sound with their throats.

Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord— he is their help and shield. House of Aaron, trust in the Lord— he is their help and shield.

You who fear him, trust in the Lord— he is their help and shield.

The Lord remembers us and will bless us: He will bless his people Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron, he will bless those who fear the Lord— small and great alike.

May the Lord cause you to flourish, both you and your children.

May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to mankind. It is not the dead who praise the Lord, those who go down to the place of silence; it is we who extol the Lord, both now and forevermore.

Praise the Lord.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭115:1-18‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Today’s Gift of Grace is Trust in the Lord.

Open the Grace {Day Eighteen} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

There’s a blessing that comes when we trust in the Lord alone.

No other name.

Jesus.

Today we choose to take every stress and pressure, every situation and circumstance…

Lay it down at the altar in prayer.

Come and see what the Lord will do

When we open the gift of trust

& press in with prayer.
