Lenten Devotional - Day Eight

Read: Psalm 55


Think: Betrayal is a difficult thing to endure and get over. It also is not foreign to many of the “heavy-hitters” of the Bible. David was betrayed by a friend in this Psalm. Jesus was betrayed by one of His disciples and arrested. Betrayal often takes on another layer of pain and bitterness when it’s a fellow believer doing the betraying. This person should be above that! If they know Jesus, they should know better! Have you been betrayed by a friend or person that once pointed you to Christ? Even though it was hard, how has God used it in your life to shape you and draw you closer to Him?


Pray: Jesus, help me to see how hard things in my life are preparing me for the plan you have for me. Thank you that you have gone through everything I have gone through and can understand me.


Apply: Have you been holding onto any bitterness or grudges towards someone who hurt you? Take some time to process through that hurt and ask God to help you forgive them.

Prayer Is Reminding God

It’s an odd thing to say that prayer is reminding God. It’s odd because—well, doesn’t God know all things? How could we remind him of anything? If you didn’t know, God’s primary way of relating to his
