Contemporary Psalms


Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus.
1 Peter 5:14

Truly You are the God of gods, the Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets. Thank You, God, for revealing deep and secret things, giving us wisdom and might to persevere in in Your Strength, in Your Provision, in the sufficiency of Your Grace. You have made it known to me what I have asked, and whatever I don't yet know what I am to do, I watch and wait.

You are revealing devolutions of pure gold into mixtures with bronze and then iron and clay; idols of the nations; works of men's hands that do not see or hear or have breath in their mouths. You tell us that those who make such idols are like then, as is everyone who trusts in the works of mere men. What a gift to be one to whom Your secrets are revealed. In You, we are Shepherded well and forever, casting all our care upon Jesus, for He cares for us.  It is truly Your Grace oh God in which we stand. In peace. In Chirst. Peace to all who are in Christ Jesus. To him be glory and dominion forever and ever amen.

Above is based on reading from 1 Peter 5:1-14; Psalm 135:15-21; and Daniel 2.
