Daily Prayer for July 9th, 2020 ¬† ¬†
Good morning, God‚ÄĒthank you!! :o)
I had reached the end of myself with overwhelming despair when I turned to you and surrendered. You took me under your wing with a gracious sense of righteousness by faith in Jesus Christ. I felt your comfort. Holy Spirit, help me always keep faith in your goodness; as I dwell in your shelter and rest in your shadow. You are my God in whom I trust. In Jesus‚Äô name. Amen.
Romans 7 NIV
Released From the Law, Bound to Christ
7¬†Do you not know, brothers and sisters‚ÄĒfor I am speaking to those who know the law‚ÄĒthat the law has authority over someone only as long as that person lives?¬†2¬†For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law that binds her to him.¬†3¬†So then, if she has sexual relations with another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress.¬†But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress if she marries another man.
4¬†So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law¬†through the body of Christ,¬†that you might belong to another,¬†to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.¬†5¬†For when we were in the realm of the flesh,¬†the sinful passions aroused by the law¬†were at work in us,¬†so that we bore fruit for death.¬†6¬†But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law¬†so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.
Psalm 91:1-6 ESV
My Refuge and My Fortress
91¬†He who dwells in¬†the shelter of the Most High
will abide in¬†the shadow of the Almighty.
2¬†I will say to the¬†Lord, ‚ÄúMy¬†refuge and my¬†fortress,
my God, in whom I¬†trust.‚ÄĚ
3¬†For he will deliver you from¬†the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4¬†He will¬†cover you with his pinions,
and under his¬†wings you will¬†find refuge;
his¬†faithfulness is¬†a shield and buckler.
5¬†You will not fear¬†the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6¬†nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
