Scripture for the day is Psalm 89:38-45

But you have rejected, you have spurned,
    you have been very angry with your anointed one.
39 You have renounced the covenant with your servant
    and have defiled his crown in the dust.
40 You have broken through all his walls
    and reduced his strongholds to ruins.
41 All who pass by have plundered him;
    he has become the scorn of his neighbors.
42 You have exalted the right hand of his foes;
    you have made all his enemies rejoice.
43 Indeed, you have turned back the edge of his sword
    and have not supported him in battle.
44 You have put an end to his splendor
    and cast his throne to the ground.
45 You have cut short the days of his youth;
    you have covered him with a mantle of shame.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, you hide yourself in history, but you don’t hide yourself in your Word. Often I can’t discern you working in my life, but when I read about your saving purpose in the lives of Joseph, Job, David, and Jesus himself, it becomes clear that you never fail to help and save. Thank you for your Word; help me trust in it. Amen.
