MyPsalms 49-51 ~ Letters to God


MYPSALMS   49-51

 

I’m reading through the Psalms and I’m writing my own MyPsalms… They are a wonderful way to connect God and I in real conversation. I hope you are enjoying them. Maybe you will feel inspired to write your own Psalms!

My desire is to find this place of intimacy, this place of desire and knowing, this place of dependence on Him in all things. My days are so full that I just blow through them with working full-time and all the requirements of a family and then I wonder did I talk to God at all during the day?”

MyPsalms 49-51 are below and the links to the album that will contain all of them =)

I hope you enjoy them. To keep up with them each day please go and visit my Facebook page

MyPsalm 49
Day 49
Read Psalm 49 in your own bible or here: Psalm 49

Dear Lord,

I am Your child, I am Your offspring. You are bringing me up according to Your ways, Your values, Your love and Your character.

I am thankful that means that as I grow from one experience to the next, I am able to carry out the things that you are ‘growing into me’.

I see a picture of a child in adults clothes… in some ways that is how it is, we are dressing up in your clothes and we are growing into your ways. We cant expect to be successful immediately but as we grow, as we practice to do it, then we are able to walk in your ways and have confidence and courage to do it without having worry in the back of our minds of if we will be able to do this.

You supply me with the confidence and you will always give me the words that I need in every situation to be able to express what I need to express. You will enable me to love the best way I can, with no fear of applying wisdom and the right boundaries because I will have grown up into you and your divine ability will enable me to carry out all I need to.

In Jesus Name Amen

 

MyPsalm 50
Day 50
Read Psalm 50 in your own bible or here: Psalm 50
Dear Lord,

All of you and none of me… That is my prayer. I totally trust in your words and wisdom and I know that my plans ideas and thoughts come from you but some of them are just my good ideas, things that I came up with and quite possible motivated by my own thoughts feelings, hurts, desires, wants and needs.

When what I do, what I say, what I feel comes from my relationship with you, from your directions then that is when things in my life flow the best and everyone is blessed more than I can imagine.

Please caution me Lord when I act out of my own thoughts without consulting you. I thank you that you have given me wisdom and that is what steers me most however I want to surrender my way to you.

I consciously ask you to forgive me when I have made choices and decisions that have harmed not furthered your work around me. Forgive me for taking control and taking control away from you Lord. I need your blessing in my life, I need your provision and your work in my life or your blessing, plans and promises could not come to pass as you intend and I may be a stumbling block in your plan.

I long to work with you, within your will, within your plan and purposes. I long to be in sync with your ways and follow you and serve you all the days of my life.

In Jesus Name, Amen

 

MyPsalm 51

Day 51

Read Psalm 51 in your own bible or here: Psalm 51

 

Dear Lord,

I am a sinner, I am imperfect and I make a lot of mistakes. People may look at me and think that I have it all together or that I am good in some way but Lord You know, You see whats inside me, the things that rile me up, the things that anger and frustrate me. You hear my heart and yes there is good in there but there is also clearly sin, judgment, pride, condemnation, opinions, sometimes I think I know better than others…. and you love me anyway.

The good that is in my heart is the only that good that you had placed there in the first place – it begins and ends with you.

I acknowledge my sin, I acknowledge judgment, please forgive me Lord and give me eyes to see what you see… help me to be more like you in all my ways. Cleanse me Lord. I humble myself before you and acknowledge that I am nothing.

Help me to always see the bigger picture, because when I consider my thoughts, the things that are becoming clear to me, things that happen around me, other people’s decisions and reactions and ways, through your eyes, through your bigger picture then I can take my focus off the immediate and my interpretation of it and know its all under your covering and your will be done.

It’s so hard to understand love and judgment being equal in you…. From human eyes we cannot comprehend that but if I can relax and give up my role as judge then I can be freed to do the things you have called me to with even more anointing. I need to realise that my interpretations may or may not be correct but how can I know unless I know the bigger picture? I don’t know the bigger picture Lord so I ask you to forgive me for thinking I do.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Amen

 

Hope you enjoy the journey!

Love and Justice


For me, I don’t know about you, it’s so hard to understand love and judgment both being a part of God….

I am fairly certain that most people see God either as loving or judging… but the truth is that He is both love and justice. Before God created us the world was all ‘right’ but when sin came in, so did ‘wrong’. We see that if there are things are right, then there are also things that are  wrong too. If there is ‘right’ then there is there is ‘wrong’…

 

God is not all one attribute but his make up, not that I pretend to know or understand all of it, is complex and so He is both love and justice. Actually I think that love and justice are inseparable. However from a human, mortal standpoint…. trying to see the cohesion of love and justice is just too much for my brain to control and make sense of.

 

Humans either usually err on the side of love, compassion, empathy, understanding, forgiveness and mercy or they err of the side of judgment, condemnation, opinions, correction, drawings lines in the sand and being very black and white about things. From what I have seen… God is the only one who can successfully do love and justice perfectly.

 

I really don’t know how it works, and what is the difference between an observation and a judgment? How thin is that line right there and how on earth do we stay on the right side of it?

From human eyes we cannot comprehend that, but if we can relax and give up our role as judge then we can be freed to do the things He has called us to with even more anointing because judgement of others stunts us.

 

We also need to realise that our interpretations may or may not be correct, but how can we know in a lot of cases unless we know the bigger picture?

I know that I don’t know the bigger picture so I’m asking the Lord to forgive me for thinking I do.

MyPsalm 46
Day 46
Read Psalm 46 in your own bible or here: Psalm 46

Dear Lord,

Lord please speak to me. So many thoughts run through my mind and sometimes I wonder what is what.

So many things stir me up, so much that is needed in the world around me I want to do so much more than I can. Lord please help me to hear you clearly and to KNOW the things that you are directing me towards.

Lord I pray you will brush away any confusion and concern, Lord I give you all the burdens that I am carrying right now. I know that you have a purpose for my life and that even though it seems so big that I will not get lost in it.

When I see the needs around me I want to do something to help. Lord please simply help me to walk simply through my life without taking on things that you have not intended me to take on.

I can only do any of these things in your own strength and not in mine, when I rely on you everything falls perfectly into place and I remain in your peace because it is by your hand that things have been accomplished, and for your glory.

In Jesus Name Amen

 

MyPsalm 47

Dear Lord,
You lift me up, in my weakness you are my covering and my shield. All the uneven places in my life are now filled with you. You are my portion and you are my all in all. You are my grace and my sustenance.Lord where would I be without you? My hope is only in you and in your perfect plan. Help me to hear your voice so that I can follow your lead and walk in your ways each and every day.Let your voice in my life be clearer than any other and obvious to me in every way, help me to know your plans and know what you would have me say and what are the things you would have me do each day. Help me to also have restraint and be conscious of the things that you would not have me enter into.Please give me your courage, boldness and the tenacity to fulfill your purposes, give me your wisdom in every circumstance and the answers that I need. Convey through me your words of life that can save people’s lives and open their hearts to know you as their Saviour.

In Jesus Name, Amen

 

MyPsalm 48

Day 48

Read Psalm 48 in your own bible or here: Psalm 48

 

Dear Lord,

Please remind me to look above the smoke screens. The smoke screens deflect and distract me from what is really going on to what appears to be going on.

Open my eyes and my ears to see and hear and know the truth. Let Your truth be lifted high and may it change the outcomes of each and every day.

When my mind is confused remind me that there are plans of the enemy that try to keep me away from the purposes you have made for me.

Help me Lord to be more vigilant in my awareness and proactive in my approach to the things that matter most.

In Jesus Name, Amen

Amen

 

Hope you enjoy the journey!
