It is interesting to note that in verse 9, the Psalmist denotes the idea of being covered by God (in the Hebrew). This passage was part of my memory verse challenge in 2012. Everyday, as I walked from my car to the hospital and watched the sun rise, I would repeat David’s inspired words. Even now, I find so much comfort from these words. As I head to Uganda in three days, I’m praying for God’s covering or refuge from my own self doubts and whatever fiery darts Satan has in store. Please pray with me for the city of Kampala. – Teresa #runningtoYou #thelifterofmyhead #tradingsorrowandshameforthejoyoftheLord
Psalm 143: 8-12 (ESV)
Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.
Deliver me from my enemies, O Lord!
I have fled to you for refuge.[a]
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God!
Let your good Spirit lead me
on level ground!
For your name’s sake, O Lord, preserve my life!
In your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble!
And in your steadfast love you will cut off my enemies,
and you will destroy all the adversaries of my soul,
for I am your servant.
