Psalm 20

"May He grant you your heart's desire, and fulfill all your plans!" (20:4). When you place your trust fully in the Lord and not in the things of this world you can be assured that He reads your heart and helps you on your pilgrimage.

Psalm 18

"He made my feet like hinds' feet, and set me secure on the heights" (18:33) God looks out for us. Protects us. He knows what we need when we need it. He sets us secure. If we know how God calls us we should not be afraid to follow because he gives us strength.  

Psalm 16

"Thou art my Lord; I have no good apart from thee" (16:2). He created us in His image and likeness. We are called to praise, reverence, and serve Him with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind. Apart from Him; what is there? Photo by Pixabay on

Psalm 15

"O Lord, who shall sojourn in thy tent? Who shall dwell on thy holy hill?" (15:1) Is not that holy hill Calvary? The Sacred Heart of He who died there is exemplary such that if we can imitate Him, we too can dwell on that holy hill. Photo by Johannes Rapprich on

Psalm 13

"But I have trusted in thy steadfast love; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation" (13:5). The heart's natural inclination is to rejoice in His Salvation when we place our trust in His love. God reminds us of his love and to love others.

Psalm 12

"The promises of the Lord are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times" (12:6). A reminder to be not afraid or feel abandoned when hope dampers. Remember God's promises -- mercy, salvation, eternal life. They are pure and refined and unequivocal. Photo by Pixabay on
