A Daily Devotion for Friday, April 9

Psalm 69: 1-14


verse 5: You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you.

I sometimes lose sight of this. God has seen it all. He has seen everything I have done and failed to do. He has seen what I have done well and in good faith, and what I have done poorly or for the wrong reasons. Why do I waste time trying to reason with myself? I can- and should- turn to God and ask for direction and forgiveness whenever in doubt. God can help me to see my wrongs along with showing me the right path. Prayer will strengthen that relationship for me. God has made it possible for me to communicate directly with Him.

Holy Lord, You are leading me on another journey in this life. Help me to stay on the right path and continue to learn. Help me to have a clean heart, and pure motives. You are the Way. Amen

psalm 69:11-14 


David cried out until he was physically exhausted, yet he still trusted God to save him. Many other men in the Bible like Moses, Daniel, Nehemiah and David were all leaders in their own way, yet God found favor in all of them and was always with them. Though these leaders had their own unique qualities , in many ways they shared the same qualities as well. God favored each of these leaders because they had true hearts for God. When my lack of faith shows it’s ugly head because of nerves, frustrations, irritation in traffic, disappointments, sadness over bad news - I just kind of sulk and give up. What if in that moment I …

Psalm 69-1-14 I have a book entitled “The Remarkable Prayers (meaning people) of the Bible.” Of course, David is featured prominently. The chapter is sub titled “A Man of Remarkable Trust.” David’s entire life shows his heart for God and his trust in God for everything. His many prayers and praises we can read in the book of Psalms should be telling us to follow his example. Using today’s reading as an example, we should pray at our lowest point knowing that God is listening. David confesses his sins knowing that God already knows them. I think this is important because God needs to know we understand we are often sinners. He also understands that his prayers will be answered i…

Psalm 69: 1-14


1 Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.


This verse speaks with surprising imagery. When have I felt that I was up to my neck in issues and couldn’t take anymore? When have I felt like I was drowning in stress and crisis? We still speak this way. And what I know now, and will never forget, is that God has always been there to listen, just like he was for David. He hears us when we pray. Even when our pain, anger or doubts seem too much to bear, all we need to do is remember that God is present with us always. Even when we feel he may no…

2021-0409 Friday, Daily Devotion - Psalm 69:1-14


I saw the passion and eagerness when David in deep water and the floods overwhelmed him. It is hard to look for God and cry out to God when we are in deep depression and when we feel the spiritual floods overwhelm us. It is hard to pray, praise, or even read the Word of God when we are sunk in spiritual depression. Nevertheless, David earnestly cried out to God and looked for God’s guidance passionately. This is an aspect of true and deep spirituality.


Lord, our God, thank you for showing us a good example of David’s spirituality. Help us remember this moment David cried to You in his deep and wide…

Psalm 69:13-14 - “But as for me, my prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love, answer me. With your faithful help rescue me from sinking in the mire;”


We have often heard that prayer is neglected when things are going well and that people are more likely to resort to prayer when facing difficulty. The difference between a prayer of desperation and a prayer of faith is demonstrated by David in this psalm. He obviously is in dire straits yet offers his prayer with the confidence of God’s love and faithfulness and with the humility of knowing God’s answer to prayer comes at God’s acceptable time. In this…
