Psalm 22:25-31 New Living Translation (NLT)
King David found himself rejected by family and friends; he became a target for his enemies, but he stayed focused on God’s great love and faithfulness that had been revealed to him. He believed God would lead him out of his present feelings of hopelessness, because God had always been faithful in the past. So, David put on praise, lived according to God’s Word of love, and told others of the goodness of the Lord and the power of his might.
Future generations will be depending on our faithful witness of Christ’s love, salvation, and deliverance today. How will they recognize and acknowledge the goodness of God unless we witness and model Christ’s miraculous love and goodness now? We must continue to plant the seeds of Truth in the lives of others, so the Vine can grow and reach all nations.
I will praise you in the great assembly.
I will fulfill my vows in the presence of those who worship you.
The poor will eat and be satisfied.
All who seek the Lord will praise him.
Their hearts will rejoice with everlasting joy.
The whole earth will acknowledge the Lord and return to him.
All the families of the nations will bow down before him.
For royal power belongs to the Lord.
He rules all the nations.
Let the rich of the earth feast and worship.
Bow before him, all who are mortal,
all whose lives will end as dust.
Our children will also serve him.
Future generations will hear about the wonders of the Lord.
His righteous acts will be told to those not yet born.
They will hear about everything he has done.
Prayer: Help me Lord to be a vibrant branch that reaches into the lives of others and releases the seeds of your love. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
