August 2

This is my third month of reading through the entire book of Psalms in a month, and it just dawned on me that the Lord is teaching me how to pray and communicate with Him. I can just hear Jesus say, “you knucklehead, how long does it take for you to learn?” I’m sure that’s why he continually repeats Himself throughout the Bible, He knows that some of us are very dense. A lot of times I will rebuke the enemy in the middle of my prayer to God; then wonder if it was appropriate for me to do that. I got confirmation that it is okay, King David did it! Here’s the thing, open your mouth and pray, God already knows our heart. If the wicked are assailing you, or coming after you in any way, cry out to the Lord, and ask Him to rebuke their evil ways! David did it and he was a man after God’s own heart. Use prayer instead of vengeance, let God sort out the details because He is a just God, can see the full picture, and will fight for you. 

Depart from me, all you workers of evil, for the LORD has heard the sound of my weeping. The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD accepts my prayer. All my enemies shall be ashamed and greatly troubled; they shall turn back and be put to shame in a moment. Psalms 6:8-10
