Today’s Lectio Divina: Excerpts from Psalm 65. (MsgB)
A David Psalm.
Silence is praise to You, Zion-dwelling God,
And also obedience. You hear the prayer in it all.
Well, hush my mouth.
In obedience, this day, as I see it, I give God my gift of silence…
My prayer: “In repentance and rest is my salvation, in quietness and trust is my strength.” (Isaiah 30:15). For Your name’s sake. Amen.
My questions to ponder: When was the last time I decided that God had more to say to me than I had to say to Him? Is it possible for me to take one whole day and give God, in obedience, my gift of silence?
So what is God speaking to you today as you ponder the Psalms?
Over a 50-week period, you and I will take a deeper look at The Psalms: God’s Songbook of Prayers.
