I confess my faults to the Lord and You took away the guilt of my sins.

"Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.”  (2 Samuel 12: 13 NIV)

David was a man after God's heart.  Why?    Once he is convicted of sin, never offers  excuses.  When you sin, say to God immediately: "I have sinned.  Have mercy on me."  If your sin is very serious, pray Psalm 51 and then go for Reconciliation the very first opportunity.

Incline my heart, O God to Your decrees: and favor me with Your law.

"While they were serving the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul (Paul) for the work to which I have called them.”   Then after fasting and praying, they laid their hands on them [in approval and dedication] and sent them away [on their first journey]."  (Acts 13: 2-3  AMP)

How do you know if the Holy Spirit has set you apart for a special ministry?
"For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable."  (Romans 11: 29 NABRE)

Hear, O Lord, the sound of my call; have pity on me and answer me.

"I remain confident of this:
 I will see the goodness of the Lord
 in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
 be strong and take heart
 and wait for the Lord."  (Psalm 27:  13-14 NIV)

Waiting for the Lord to fulfill His promise is hard.  The word of God that never fails advises us to be stouthearted and wait confidently.  "Faith that is firm is also patient."  (Isaiah 28: 16)

Open your mouth and proclaim God’s deeds. Sing joyful hymns to your Creator.

"The mouth of the just man utters wisdom, and his tongue tells forth what is right; the law of God is in his heart."  (Psalm 37 (36): 30-31 RM)

How do you use your tongue, your power of speech?   The Bible teaches that as the heart is filled, there goes the tongue.

My portion and Inheritance is assured. My future is utterly secure.

Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.

"Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;
I say to the LORD, “My Lord are you.”

O LORD, my allotted portion and cup,
you it is who hold fast my lot.
I set the LORD ever before me;
with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.

You will show me the path to life,
fullness of joys in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever."  (Ps 16:1b-2ab, 4, 5ab and 8, 11 RM)

O Lord, You put gladness into my heart, more than when grain and wine abound.

"The brook near where Elijah was hiding ran dry, because no rain had fallen in the land.
So the LORD said to Elijah:
“Move on to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there.
I have designated a widow there to provide for you.”  (1 Kings 17: 7-9 RM)

Have you found out God's Plan for your Provision?
