Scripture for the day is Psalm 132:11-18
The Lord swore to David a sure oath
from which he will not turn back:
“One of the sons of your body
I will set on your throne.
12 If your sons keep my covenant
and my decrees that I shall teach them,
their sons also, forevermore,
shall sit on your throne.”
13 For the Lord has chosen Zion;
he has desired it for his habitation:
14 “This is my resting place forever;
here I will reside, for I have desired it.
15 I will abundantly bless its provisions;
I will satisfy its poor with bread.
16 Its priests I will clothe with salvation,
and its faithful will shout for joy.
17 There I will cause a horn to sprout up for David;
I have prepared a lamp for my anointed one.
18 His enemies I will clothe with disgrace,
but on him, his crown will gleam.”
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, “the soul who on Jesus does lean for repose, you will not – you will not – desert to its foes. That soul though all hell should endeavor to shake, you’ll never, no never, no never forsake.” I ask that your Spirit speak this truth to my heart (Romans 8:16). Amen.
