Nov 11, Day 314 - Psalm 55

Click here to go to Psalm 55

This is another great Psalm to read when your struggling. But I love verse 22 for anytime:
22 Give your burdens to the Lord,
    and he will take care of you.
    He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.

From The Voice: 
Cast your troubles upon the Eternal; His care is unceasing! He will not allow His righteous to be shaken.

Reminds me a little bit what Jesus said: 
Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28, The Voice)

  1. Psalm 55
    6 And I say, "Oh, that I had wings like a dove!
    I would fly away and be at rest;

    I have a daily devotional by Jill Briscoe I love so much entitled, "Wings." In the front I have dated and written out 2-1/2 pages of wings Scriptures and this is one of them. The one I love the most that I have written on the title page is Psalm 68:13, "Though you lie down among the sheepfolds, yet you will be like the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold." I have given a copy of the devotional to two special women because I have loved it so much.

    12 For it is not an enemy who taunts me—
    then I could bear it;
    it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me—
    then I could hide from him.
    13 But it is you, a man, my equal,
    my companion, my familiar friend.
    14 We used to take sweet counsel together;
    within God's house we walked in the throng.

    16 But I call to God,
    and the Lord will save me.

    18 He redeems my soul in safety
    from the battle that I wage,
    for many are arrayed against me.

    23b But I will trust in you.
