Psalm 146:5-7 Our True Help
But joyful are those who have the God of Israel[Jacob] as their helper,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.
He made heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them.
He keeps every promise forever.
He gives justice to the oppressed
and food to the hungry.
Pause in his presence
Lenten Reflection: When we think about how the Living God has chosen to make his home in our hearts (making our bodies his temple) we know that he will be directing and guiding our lives from within; this is the work of the Holy Spirit. That is why we should be joyful to have the Lord as our God and Helper. Our Lord attends to our needs whether they are spiritual, physical, or social. He is always available, his help is lasting and complete, and he is faithful to every promise. Whatever you face, today, call upon God’s guidance and direction and he will be there for you.
Prayer: Lord, I am filled with joy knowing you are with me and in me. I will be listening to your guidance and direction each day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
