IDOK DEVOTION for Friday, September 7, 2007

Pray for the Peace of Israel

Psalm 121
A Song of Ascents.
1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Something imperative in verse one – I will. Today I will choose to look UP. Today I WILL choose to know my help comes from the LORD. The LORD Who made the Heaven AND the earth – surely NO situation is too large, too hard, or too small that HE will not HELP me with it.
3 He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
And as I rest in this choice, He WILL NOT allow me to be moved to any place of harm. As long as I rest in this choice I will be safe. I can REST because He does NOT slumber – He never slips, He never loses attention, He never drops off to sleep; He never leaves us without HELP.
4 Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is your keeper;
The LORD is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
Yes, HE is our Watchman – to keep, to preserve, to guard – all this and more He is to you today! He is your COVERING over your right hand – He has got your back and all sides today – you can CHOOSE to do right today. Not even the power of the sun or the moon with all it’s gravitational pull can MOVE you today, if you choose to REST in YOUR WATCHMAN.
7 The LORD shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
Yes, He is here to HELP, to preserve us, guard us, keep us, cover us, all the HELP we need wherever we go on this planet today and from this time forth — forevermore!
Father, as we begin this morning we first think of Becky and Bill and all the family as they grieve their temporary loss of Jody. We do not understand the sufferings in this present world but we KNOW YOU are our HELP. You are our Watchman and You are the ONE WHO cares for us above all others and so we pray for this family today for peace and comfort as only You can give them.
We thank You for the good report from Zela, that her grandfather has gone home from the hospital. We continue to pray for Janie and Jennifer and Toy as they endure the suffering of disease – we know You are their HELP and we are grateful for WHO YOU ARE to them, especially in this season. And we pray for these others too and we know You are equally their HELP in all situations. For our IDOK Troops You are their HELP and we are grateful and we entrust them to You today for safety and health and for their safe and sound return to us at the appointed time. Again we pray for revival in America and we pray for this Nation as we begin to seek and to vote into the Oval Office a new President in just over a year – Lord, we ask You to bring to the forefront, Your Choice and we pray that every Christian will take Your Choice to heart and to the voting booth. Lord, we need Your Choice for President, don’t let us miss him. And Father I pray for each and every IDOK today that today we will rest in the fact that You are our HELP and that not one of us will fail to choose You and Your HELP for us today and this we ask for Jesus sake. And Bev, she’s o
n my mind, thank You that she is always on Yours too and You are taking care of her. Thank You Father.
