Daily Courage - May 8

  • 2017 May 08

from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

David is short of words to thank and honor his God. To thank him for answering his prayer; to honor him for his faithfulness.  He challenges others to always trust in the Lord - and never to forget to thank Him.


I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. 
My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. 
Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together. 
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. 
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. 
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. 
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. 
(Psalm 34:1-7)
