Psalm 21



Psalm 21
For the director of music. A psalm of David.

1 The king rejoices in your strength, Lord.
    How great is his joy in the victories you give!

2 You have granted him his heart’s desire
    and have not withheld the request of his lips.
3 You came to greet him with rich blessings
    and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him—
    length of days, for ever and ever.
5 Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
    you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
6 Surely you have granted him unending blessings
    and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
7 For the king trusts in the Lord;
    through the unfailing love of the Most High
    he will not be shaken.

8 Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies;
    your right hand will seize your foes.
9 When you appear for battle,
    you will burn them up as in a blazing furnace.
The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath,
    and his fire will consume them.
10 You will destroy their descendants from the earth,
    their posterity from mankind.
11 Though they plot evil against you
    and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed.
12 You will make them turn their backs
    when you aim at them with drawn bow.

13 Be exalted in your strength, Lord;
    we will sing and praise your might.

I am giving Praise to the Lord this day for His goodness toward me. I rest in His care, and I am at ease in His provision. The Lord is good to me, He is good to me all the time. I will praise His Name, and I will lift up my voice to bring testimony and tell others that the Lord is Good. He is so very Good, all the time, He is so very, very Good.

Dear Lord,

As I think about this day, and I give you praise for your healing power (my headache and pain is gone - PTL!), I am confronted with the reality of my situation, with the fact that I possess no knowledge of tomorrow, of what will be, and of what will come. Yet, I let this go, I choose today to follow after you without knowledge, without knowing what will be. I let this go and I rest in your sufficiency because you are able and are fully in control of my days. There is nothing outside your hand nor your influence. I am free, and I am able to accomplish all things today because of your Goodness in my life. There is nothing I lack, nothing I need, nothing that I must do. Everything has been cared for, and I can KNOW that you are in control of the details of my life. I lift my voice to you today, and I cry out with joy and thanksgiving for your grace and mercy. You have done everything that needs to be done in my life, and I am at ease. Praise be to God this day for He is so very, very Good.
