Psalm 110

Click or touch “Firestarter”
To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.

Wednesday, the middle of the week, is at the center of a cross. Spread in threes on either side, are the other days of the week. In deep, vertical descent, the psalms take us back to the times of King David. Wednesdays are rooted in the psalms as they touch the early prayer of God’s people in ways that stretch upward to the promises that would come to pass. Especially in this psalm, we claim the messianic prophecy that links David to Jesus.

Your world stretches both outwardly in wide expanse, and inwardly to the quiet depths of prayer, which the Spirit of King Jesus is pouring into your heart. From the center of this cross as from the open side of Jesus⎯blood and water continue to flow forth as signs of the presence of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, filling your week.
