Observation

What is the theme of this psalm?

Application

Do I take time out of my busy schedule to remember all the things God has done for me and thank Him for His eternal faithful love?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in Heaven, I will give thanks to You because You have answered me and have become my salvation. The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This came from You; it is wonderful in my eyes. This is the day You have made; I will rejoice and be glad in it. LORD, save me! LORD, please grant me success! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD. You are God and have given me light. You are my God, and I will give You thanks. You are my God; I will exalt You. I give You thanks, LORD, for You are good; Your faithful love endures forever. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
