A series of loving blessings flow from the heart of the psalmist. He is an intercessor for you. The Holy Spirit groans inwardly to set you free and brings the gift of God’s helping presence to you. What are the circumstances in your life that come to mind that concretely unfold for you just how and where you need help from the Lord?
The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to you. Take verse 7 for today and treasure it. The power of Jesus’name has been given to you. He stands before you now as the risen Lord. See the smile and feel the arms of Christ who embraces and protects you.
What are these?
Your help comes from inner space.v. 2
You grant me my heart’s desire. v. 4
Pride in the name of the Lord v. 7
We shall rise and stand upright. v. 8
