THEME: HEAR GOD’S WORD
“I will hear what God the Lord will speak, For He will speak peace To His people and to His saints; But let them not turn back to folly. Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, That glory may dwell in our land. Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed. Truth shall spring out of the earth, And righteousness shall look down from heaven. Yes, the Lord will give what is good; And our land will yield its increase. Righteousness will go before Him, And shall make His footsteps our pathway.”
-The Lord caused restoration to prevail in the lives of the Israelites after the Babylonian captivity. The psalm reveals the salvation that comes through the word of the Lord. Also, it discloses the mercies of our Prince of peace who speaks wisdom, truth, righteousness and prospers His people. Throughout the word of God, we see wise counsel and various examples of the restoration and favor of the Lord. Isaac received comfort when he lost his mom, and the Lord gave him a beautiful wife. We also see God’s mercy when Isaac’s barren wife Rebekah was blessed with children. Afterwards when there was famine, God directed him to Gerar, the land of the Philistines where he continued to prosper and became very prosperous; despite the opposition present. God’s provision is also seen through His provision when the widow of Zarephath was restored. God is our healer and this is a theme that runs all through the Bible; including physical and spiritual healing. We are reminded to hear and believe in the word of God that brings peace, restoration and salvation in our lives.
Your word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our steps Jesus, guide us in Your truth merciful Savior. Your word causes our hearts to hope in You Lord, train our hearts to wait on You and to seek You in all things. Your word gives us comfort when we are afflicted and provides Your salvation, thank You for saving us. Your word has given us life and life forever more, we exult Your holy name. Thank You Lord for loving us. May You cause restoration in our lives. We wait on You Lord save us from all our tribulations. Our hearts yearn for You, heal all our wounds merciful Savior. Break every evil force that has come to bring delay and destruction in our lives and families. Bring restoration in our lives and nation dear Jesus and save us we humbly beseech You. Remove every accusation against us in the courts of heaven and wash us with Your precious blood dear Jesus. Your word is truth, may You answer all our prayers and hearts desires. We shall not be moved dear Jesus for we have victory in You. We are more than conquerors in You Christ Jesus. We praise You and lift Your name high, now and forever. Amen
