Scripture

Psalm 34

Observation

About what did David unashamedly boast? What comfort can the brokenhearted take from this chapter?

Application

Do I glory and revel in the greatness of God? When I am brokenhearted, do I remember He is near and run to Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Oh Great God and Lord of All, I will praise You at all times; Your praise will always be on my lips. May I never boast in anything but You, and let the humble hear, be glad, and proclaim Your greatness and exalt You together with me. I thank You that I sought You and You answered me and delivered me. May I ever look to You and be radiant with joy and never ashamed. Thank You for saving the poor and for surrounding those who fear You and rescuing them. Every day, lead me to taste and see that You are good! How happy are those who take refuge in You, for they will lack no good thing. For Your eyes are on the righteous and Your ears are open to their cry for help. Thank You, Lord, that You are near the brokenhearted and You save those who are crushed in spirit. Many adversaries may come against me, but You save me from them all. Even if I should die, You will redeem my life. I praise You, Lord! In the name of Christ Jesus to Your glory I pray this. Amen.
