Psalm 31, from the Bible, helps us know what to do as Christians. #1, trust in the Lord. #2, be not ashamed of Jesus. #3, walk in God’s righteousness. #4, ask God to hear your prayers and deliver you from the evil one. #5, put God first in your lives, for He is our rock and our mighty fortress. #6, ask God to shine down upon you and to save you through His mercy. David wrote, “In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name’s sake lead me, and guide me.” (Psalm 31:1-3) “Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies’ sake. Let me not be ashamed, O Lord; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.” (Psalm 31:16,17)
#7, speak of God’s goodness and how He is so good to you. #8, bless the Lord our God, and tell people how He has changed your life through His loving kindness. #10, love the Lord God with all your heart, mind, and strength. #11, be faithful to God, whom you believe in. #12, be of good courage, for God is your strength as you hope in the Lord. David wrote, “Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!.” (Psalm 31:19) “Blessed be the Lord: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.” (Psalm 31:21) “O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” (Psalm 31:23,24) Acknowledge these twelve things in your daily Christian life. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will trust in You. That they will not ashamed of You, Jesus. To allow Your righteousness to flow deep in their lives. That people will engage with you in prayer, in order for you to hear them and deliver them from evil. With my family, I preach daily to put you first, and I pray that every person who says they are a Christian will do this also. You are my rock and my mighty fortress. Shine down upon us Go and save us through Your mercy’s sake. I speak of Your goodness to as many people as I can, for you have done great and mighty things in my life. Blessed is the Lord God Almighty. It is an honor to tell people how You have changed my life through Your loving kindness. I love You, Lord, with all my heart, mind, and strength. I will be faithful to You God, whom I believe in. You have given me courage and strength. I love You, Jesus. My hope is in You. Amen.
