Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of your name; deliver us, and atone for our sins, for your name’s sake!

This verse is a prayer. A prayer we all need to call out to God. We need help from the true God of Salvation. The good news is that the very thing we want is the thing that will bring glory to His Name.

Cry out to the the God of your salvation, that he will atone for your sins and deliver you. You need this.

5-45 Application for Nov 15, 2020 :: 1 Timothy 6:6-7

===
But godliness with contentment is great gain, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.

1 Timothy 6:6-7
===

A person who is content is a person at peace, and a person who is grateful.

We can be more content if we continue to remember that every good thing we have is a gift, and more than many people have.

We can also be more content if we continue to remember that keeping everything for ourselves will be ultimately fruitless

5-45 Application for Nov 8, 2020 :: Psalm 118:5-8

===
Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free. The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The LORD is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.

Psalm 118:5-8
===

If we can apply this Psalm to all of us, I think are hard truths implied here: We are trapped. There are those who hate us. And there is no safety in human help. If we stand alone, there is great reason to fear.

But the LORD can free us. Those who hate us will not will if God is on our side. And there is One who can be our refuge: The LORD.

Your way, O God, is holy. What god is great like our God? You are the God who works wonders; you have made known your might among the peoples.

5-42 Application for Oct 25, 2020 :: 2 Corinthians 8:9

===

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.

2 Corinthians 8:9

===

Grace is being given something you don’t deserve and you can’t imagine a more eternal or infinite example of this than one who is God becoming a human and dying for the sinful, finite creatures of Earth.

Becoming rich because he became poor. That’s the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

5-41 Application for Oct 18, 2020 :: James 1:19-20

===

…let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

James 1:19-20

===

Quick to hear
Slow to speak
Slow to anger

But … I have a right to be angry, right? If something doesn’t go my way, I should speak up about it and let people know I’m upset … right?

This might be common sense from the world’s perspective, but it’s not from God’s.

If we want God’s righteousness working in us, we should stop and listen. Find out what’s really going on. Pause and not assume that we know everything.

If you are a Child of God, you should do it His way.

5-40 Application for Oct 11, 2020 :: Proverbs 4:25-27

===

Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.

Proverbs 4:25-27

===

What is your trajectory? Where are you headed? What are your choices leading you to? Are they leading towards God or towards evil?

God is straight before you. Do not turn to the right or to the left.

Proverbs4

5-39 Application for Oct 4, 2020 :: Proverbs 4:23-24

===

Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you.

Proverbs 4:23-24

===

Your heart is very important. Don’t doubt that. God says that from your heart flows the springs of life. That means God thinks your heart is very important, so you should, too.

One might think that the best way to vigilantly keep your heart is by protecting it from evil outside forces, and this is somewhat true, but, perhaps surprisingly, it’s not the first thing the wise author mentions. What he places of first importance is guarding what comes out of your mouth. Apparently what you say can corrupt you as well as what you hear or see.

So be cautious with what you say, and don’t treat it lightly.

Proverbs4

5-38 Application for Sept 27, 2020 :: Psalm 73:25-26


===

Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

Psalm 73:25-26

===

So many things on earth will fail us. We need Someone who is not mortal. Someone who is not earthly – someone who is eternal. We need God.

Our hearts may fail us, but God will strengthen our heart.
Our flesh may fail us, but God is all we need.

Desire God.

Psalm73

5-37 Application for Sept 20, 2020 :: Jeremiah 32:40

===

I will make with them an everlasting covenant, that I will not turn away from doing good to them. And I will put the fear of me in their hearts, that they may not turn from me.

Jeremiah 32:40

===

Fear is a good thing if it causes you to act wisely. God is promising to cause us to fear him, so we won’t turn away from him.

But he is also, almost in the same breath, promising to never stop doing good to us. That’s a bargain a wise person will take. Everlastingly.
