Proclamation of God’s Faithfulness
Psalm 16:5–8 (NIV84®)
5 Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup;
you have made my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
7 I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
Lord, You have chosen my time & location;
You and You alone secure my life.
Circumstances have fallen for me in pleasant places;
God has reserved for me a delightful inheritance.
I will praise the Lord; He counsels me even as I walk through dark places.
I have set my attention on the Lord.
God’s abiding presence ensures I will not be shaken.
My God is Faithful.
Psalm 103:1–5 (NASB95®)
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;
3 Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;
4 Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
5 Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
I will praise the Lord with all that is within me;
I will praise the Lord in my thoughts, with my words and with my actions.
His benefits are magnificent; may I never forget a single one!
He pardons all my iniquities,
He heals all my diseases,
He redeems my life from the pit,
He crowns me with lovingkindness and compassion,
He satisfies my years with good, so that my youth is renewed like the eagle.
My God is Faithful!
Psalm 35:1–6 (NIV84®)
1 Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me;
fight against those who fight against me.
2 Take up shield and buckler;
arise and come to my aid.
3 Brandish spear and javelin
against those who pursue me.
Say to my soul,
“I am your salvation.”
4 May those who seek my life
be disgraced and put to shame;
may those who plot my ruin
be turned back in dismay.
5 May they be like chaff before the wind,
with the angel of the Lord driving them away;
6 may their path be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.
The Lord contends with those who contend with me;
He fights against those who fight against me.
The Lord defends my life with weapons which exceed my strength.
I will declare to all, the Lord is my salvation.
May those who seek my demise be without favor and their schemes exposed.
Those who plan for my failure will be turned back in disappointment.
May the angel of the Lord disperse them;
may their path be uncertain and difficult,
the angel of the Lord pursuing them.
