Today’s Bible Reading: Leviticus 18-19, Psalm 13, Acts 19
1 How long, O LORD? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart daily?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?
3 Consider and hear me, O LORD my God;
Enlighten my eyes,
Lest I sleep the sleep of death;
4 Lest my enemy say,
“I have prevailed against him”;
Lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved.
5 But I have trusted in Your mercy;
My heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
6 I will sing to the LORD,
Because He has dealt bountifully with me.
This Psalm of David divides into three sections.
Lord, thank You for this encouragement from Your Word. May I always and in every situation be able to say, “I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart rejoices in Your salvation. I know that You have dealt bountifully with me; therefore my heart is not deprived of my song of worship and praise to You.”
