Problem: Hard Times, Financial Difficulty, Hateful People, Feeling Under Attack, Depression,
Prescription: God’s Favor & Our Faith In Him – Read Psalm 5 and say this at least 5 times until it is cemented to your mind, heart, body and soul.
“Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.” Psalm 5:12 NIV
Listen to my words, Lord,
consider my lament.
Hear my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
with you, evil people are not welcome.
The arrogant cannot stand
in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong;
you destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful
you, Lord, detest.
But I, by your great love,
can come into your house;
in reverence I bow down
toward your holy temple.
Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness
because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
Not a word from their mouth can be trusted;
their heart is filled with malice.
Their throat is an open grave;
with their tongues they tell lies.
Declare them guilty, O God!
Let their intrigues be their downfall.
Banish them for their many sins,
for they have rebelled against you.
But let all who take refuge in you be glad;
let them ever sing for joy.
Spread your protection over them,
that those who love your name may rejoice in you.
Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;
you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
My Notes: We love you and we thank you heavenly father for your protection, deliverance and your unmatched and uncontested favor, for none is like You! Amen
I pray this Psalm blesses your life. This psalm is really like a prayer, a plead to God. Keep saying it, meditate on it, let it be cemented to your soul until your spirit is lifted and you allow God to move in your life – so you can receive HIS Favor which is the ultimate prescription or medicine to life’s problems. Remember, it get’s better! Trust God’s FAVOR and WILL for your life! Remember His yoke is easy and his burden is light.
Keep in mind that people unless called by God to help you can not really help you. Only God can truly fix the problem. People can be very supportive but only God can step in and change things – especially when it seems like life is dealing you some very hard times or “lemons.” Yup my experience is that He can step in and change that situation around for all of us who are righteous in our heart and in our actions. He can turn that lemon into sweet juicy healthy nutritious lemonade, if we just let Him in to do the work. If anyone has the power to change your situation around it is our creator, our heavenly father, GOD. Go God Go!!! Blessings to you and blessings on your life and the love of all your loved ones and remember to pray for yourself and pray for others, EVEN your enemies!!!
God Bless You!
