July 21 Scripture Selection: Psalm 89-90
Food for Thought: Ps. 89:15-18; 90:17
Reading and declaring these scriptures is a great way to start the day, and very good to declare in faith when facing challenges. They remind us of the perks there are for knowing our position in Christ and for placing Him as our Source for everything. What’s more, they help us to maintain our focus on what really matters. (See Col. 3:17, 23.)
First, because we know Him and worship Him, there is joy and the promise that in God’s righteousness we are exalted. His righteousness in us takes us to higher levels (no matter what it may currently look like). He is the glory of our strength, and we have favor, unmerited benefits, in our every-day life as we seek to glorify Him in all we do. And as our King, He provides us with a protective shield to surround us while we walk out our faith in this imperfect world.
The winning combination of praying in faith the Psalm 90:17, “Let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us,” and heartily offering to the Lord all we do and say for His glory, allows us to tap into all the bounteous blessings that the Lord has so graciously provided for us, as mentioned in Psalm 89:15-18. Our position with Him makes all this possible.
