Psalms 60:1-12

Psalms 60:1-12 The Passion Translation (TPT)

God, it seems like you walked off and left us! Why have you turned against us? You have been angry with us. O Lord, we plead, come back and help us as a father. The earth quivers and quakes before you, splitting open and breaking apart. Now come and heal it, for it is shaken to its depths. You have taught us hard lessons and made us drink the wine of bewilderment. You have given miraculous signs to those who love you. As we follow you, we fly the flag of truth, and all who love the truth will rally to it. Pause in his presence Come to your beloved ones and gently draw us out. For Lord, you save those whom you love. Come with your might and strength! Then I heard the Lord speak in his holy splendor. From his sanctuary I heard the Lord promise: “In my triumph I will be the one to measure out the portion of my inheritance to my people, and I will secure the land as I promised you. Shechem, Succoth, Gilead, Manasseh, they are all still mine!” he says. “Judah will continue to produce kings and lawgivers, and Ephraim will produce great warriors. Moab will become my lowly servant. Edom will likewise serve my purposes. I will lift up a shout of victory over the land of Philistia! But who will bring my triumph into the strong city? Who will lead me into Edom’s fortresses?” Have you really rejected us, refusing to fight our battles? Give us a father’s help when we face our enemies. For to trust in any man is an empty hope. With God’s help we will fight like heroes, and he will trample down our every foe!

Encouraging and challenging you to seek intimacy with God every day.
