Psalm 118 Good News Translation (GNT)
Our Lord is gracious and wonderfully good. He fights our sin; he takes it on as his own. He is the Victor and we are his righteous receivers. Every heart needs the Lord and the power outflowing his resurrection. Salvation connects us in order to be raised by the Father. Because we belong to the Lord, not only do we have life eternal, we can overcome anything that comes against us. The battle belongs to the Lord and he is always victorious in love.
Surrender your concerns and challenges to the Lord. He loves you; He will deliver you and bring you through. He is the Savior.
Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good,
and his love is eternal.
Let the people of Israel say,
“His love is eternal.”
The Lord makes me powerful and strong;
he has saved me.
Listen to the glad shouts of victory in the tents of God’s people:
“The Lord’s mighty power has done it!
His power has brought us victory—
his mighty power in battle!”
I will not die; instead, I will live
and proclaim what the Lord has done.
He has punished me severely,
but he has not let me die.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for eternal love that never lets me go. Help me fight against anything that would seek to rob me from a right relationship with you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
