O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you healed me. O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit (Psalm 30:2-3). In modern-day language, David would essentially be saying that God healed him and saved his soul from death or pit of hell. God saved him from the enemy and eternal condemnation. God offered this help to us, too! Whenever you’re feeling attacked by the enemy or persecuted by others, cry out to the Lord for help because He heals, protects, and saves!

Yesterday I applied for a Capstone at a Hospice House and a metropolitan Emergency Room. Pray for me!!
Ahaha YALL today’s devotion, still about humbling yourself. And how Peter didn’t want Jesus to wash his feet. Ended with “have you been ordering God around or submitting to him?” The whole time reading today I was like, gosh Peter what’s with the attitude.. do better. I’ve got a fricken log in my own eye over here. HA. I thought I’ve been more submissive to God but in prayer I think I’ve been a little bitchy asking for things.
James 4 says : You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and don’t receive because you ask with wrong motives
That was a slap in the face for me this morning. Like damn he got me again. I try to humble myself and ask for things out of the goodness of my heart but I think it’s been a little selfish lately.
Something to think abouuuuttt

Unfortunately, this retelling shows Mary responding to Gabriel’s message by saying “Can I think about it?” & being told “No!”
I’m deceased. 😂
