Psalm 118:25

Mar 29, 2024    Pastor Josh Lewis

These are two circumstances in our lives when we’re more likely to turn to God in prayer—when we realize we need saved from something, and when we’re seeking success. If these are the only times we’re praying and going to Him with the wrong motives, this could be a bad thing. But if we are seeking to be saved from the real enemy in our lives—sin, temptation, evil—then we should continually take that to God! And the success we turn to God for, may it be success in the things that matter to God! Success in the things that further His kingdom. Success in the things that serve and love others well. Let us pray continually for these things.

PASSAGE: Psalm 118:25 - "Save us, we pray, O Lord!

    O Lord, we pray, give us success!"

PAUSE: Lord, save us and grant us success. Each new day is an occasion to pray for the Lord’s deliverance from sin, brokenness, pain, temptation, and evil. It is also a day for the Lord to grant us success in faith, obedience, and love for God.

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, excuse my prayer life. Too often, I pray trivial prayers not based upon the resurrection power that lives inside me. Lord, grant me success in trusting and obeying and success with my thoughts and actions. Lord, deliver me from evil and lead me not into temptation.
