Psalm 28…RECOGNITION OF GOD and DAILY COMMUNICATION
PRAYER involves RECOGNIZING GOD IS OUR ONLY REAL SOURCE
PRAYER KEEPS US IN COMMUNION WITH GOD despite the
circumstances of life.
Verse 1 reminds us to consider the Lord as our rock which represents security
TRUE BELIEVERS should be STRAIGHTFORWARD and SINCERE in all
relationships and in all aspects of life.
To you I call O Lord my Rock verse 1
The Lord is my strength and my shield
My heart trusts in him and I am helped verse 7
The Lord is my strength
A fortress of salvation verse 8
Save your people and bless your inheritance
Be their shepherd and carry them forever v.9
The Lord is our ever present help and He is always there with us to bring us
forth to encounter victory despite the situations and circumstances of life.
He is our strength and shield and we choose to trust absolutely in Him
having a pure and steadfast heart
Proverbs 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Lean not on your own understanding
In all your ways acknowledge him
and he will make your paths straight
To lean involves trusting absolutely, to rely or rest
Always be willing to listen and be corrected by God's Word
Bring your decisions to God in prayer using the bible as your guide
Follow God's leading knowing He will make your paths straight.
We need to acknowledge God in all our ways turning every area of life over to him.
Look at your values and priorities Matthew 6:33 . What is important to you?
SEEK 1ST HIS KINGDOM AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS involves
Turning to God 1st for help and filling our thoughts with His desires and to take
His characteristics as the pattern to so govern our life in all aspects.
Actively choose to give God 1st place in every area of life.
We ultimately need to face What is really important to us
PRAYER INVOLVES HAVING A LISTENING EAR and a
RESPONSIVE HEART to whom JESUS IS thus acknowledging He is LORD
Trust comes before seeing the evidence God has so promised
Trust God with all your heart giving thanks to God connecting with Jesus
Be honest with God regarding your feelings and desires and so discover He is
more than able to hold you securely in His arms of love.
God is described as a rock whose strength stability and ability brings security to
believers with love being the essence needed for us to encounter His intervention
PRAY....THINK and so WALK

Prayers will thus influence our walk with our relationship with Christ being evident
