The God Filled Goal of Our Prayers

Pursue Righteousness

Today’s reading is Psalm 66-70.

“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, so that we can be awesome, rich, healthy, content, and satisfied” (not quite Psalm 67:1-2). Psalm 67 is an amazing display of God Filled love for God. The psalmist doesn’t want God’s blessing on Israel so Israel can be blessed. The Psalmist wants God’s blessing on Israel so the nations around them will know it makes a difference who your God is. The psalmist wants the heathens to see how great things are for Israel and recognize that Israel must serve a great God. Why do we pray for good marriages, good children, good churches, good lives? Is it simply so we can enjoy God’s good gifts, or is it because we want the people around us to know God’s way works and to know God’s saving power?…

I'm a person who lives one day at a time, making lots of mistakes but realizing that God forgives and strengthens. I am a son, dad, and grandpa. I'm definitely not perfect but I do strive unto perfection as I live my life. "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5:48)
