Scripture – 

Psalm 5:11 – But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may exult in you.  

Observation – 

In verse 10 David is asking God to make those who have rebelled against Him to bear their guilt.  For those who seek God as their shelter there is joy.  There is a  constant song to the Lord.  David asks for protection over those who seek Him when in danger.  Joy will abound in those who love the name God.

Application –

Whether I am doing great or facing difficulties the Lord is my refuge and in Him I have joy.  Where else will I look for shelter?  I know I have protection in Jesus who overcame death and died for me so I can have life in Him.  This is my greatest need and is cause for unending joy to sing praises to God for His grace and mercy.  Jesus loved me first and I love Jesus  and rejoice in His name above all names.  

Prayer – 


Thank you for your love, grace and mercy you have for me and sending Jesus so I can have a relationship with you.  Let the Spirit guide me to seek you, find shelter in you, grant me protection and let me be joyful and sing your praises to glorify you.
