Verse of the Day – Psalms 59:16

“But I will sing of your might; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been a fortress for me and a refuge in the day of my distress.” Psalms 59:16 (NRSV)

Prodigal Thoughts: Have you ever heard someone or a group singing in a place where the song just lingers for a while? They can sing a note and it just seems to echo a bit. It is breath-taking. David would have been hiding out in caves trying to stay safe from King Saul. So, I could imagine that as he was singing in the caves, it might have echoed a good bit. David was praising God and thanking Him for being his protector and sustainer, singing out loud. I’m sure it would be difficult to feel alone while singing His praises. Now, we have the Holy Spirit who is always with us. Let’s not hold back with our praises and singing. No matter what situations we might be facing, but use the breath that God has given us for today to praise His name. 

Prayer for today: I pray that we would worship our heavenly Father. That we would take every opportunity to give thanks and praise Him who has made a way for us to be in a right-relationship with Him. I pray that we would know that even when we are by ourselves, we are never, ever alone, for our God is always with us. 

If you need prayer, please reply and I will pray for you. If you would like to talk about this verse or have questions, I’m always open for your feedback.

May God always be our fortress and our refuge…
