Tomorrow is Ascension Thursday, the day we recall Jesus’ return to his Father after forty days of visiting with his disciples after Easter. The psalm for today is just right for the Ascension where we praise the Lord Jesus as King of all the earth.
Just as Wednesday is the center of the week, so is verse 4 the center of this psalm of seven verses. You might take this verse and memorize it, praying for every country on the earth that each one might come to know and love Jesus as their king. You and I and all of us praying this psalm today become the ones that God is asking that we pray in this special way for unity and peace on this earth.
A Bible Breath May Your face shine upon me. v. 1
Wednesdays are dedicated to the Psalms,
one each week across the three-year cycle.
This is a sample of a new version of The Bible Through the Seasons as a daily family devotion. An ebook is planned. I’ll keep you posted! –Pastor Nick
