Psalm of Ascent: Wednesday

We're going to practice something similar for today's psalm as what we did yesterday. Read the Psalm slowly to yourself three times through. The first time, ask yourself what word or phrase stood out to you in the Psalm. What is God saying to you in this? The second time, ask what your response will be to what you have heard from God this morning. On your third and final reading, rest in the word that God has for you today. Allow yourself to feel his love for you and enjoy his presence. 

Psalm 123

A song of ascents.

1 I lift up my eyes to you,
    to you who sit enthroned in heaven.
2 As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
    as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
    till he shows us his mercy.

3 Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy on us,
    for we have endured no end of contempt.
4 We have endured no end
    of ridicule from the arrogant,
    of contempt from the proud.
