Psalm 69:16 – Answer my prayers, O Lord, for your unfailing love is wonderful. Take care of me, for your mercy is so plentiful.


The psalmist’s only response to the treatment by his enemies is to keep praying to God for his rescue. God’s love is unfailing and wonderful. The psalmist also seeks shelter and protection from God whose mercy abounds.


There are times I am facing and going to face where people are adversarial to me specifically when they know and don’t like that I am a believer. However, this psalm could be applied to any situation that has us mired where we feel like we are sinking. I must confess any sin I have and turn to God in continual prayer. The psalmist keeps praying and his prayer turns to praise. God’s love for us is the most powerful and it never fails. God demonstrated that love by sending Jesus to the cross in our place so we can have a relationship with Him. The cross is the greatest example of mercy and He continues to forgive us when we turn to Him in repentance. In our heavenly Father we can take refuge from whatever the enemy is trying to throw at us.


Thank you for your love and incredible mercy you have for me. Please let your Spirit lead me to be in continual, deliberate prayer and praise to you.
