Lent 2018: See the Lord's Salvation: Day 6

Grace Day


Today's Text: Psalm 68:5-6

Use today to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

God in his holy dwelling is
a father of the fatherless
and a champion of widows.
God provides homes for those who are deserted.
He leads out the prisoners to prosperity,
but the rebellious live in a scorched land.
—Psalm 68:5-6

    Was feeling guilty for not doing enough today, and then had this gentle reminder that it’s ok to rest. Thank you God for your grace.

  • Robin NHendrich

    Rest…a common theme in my life this week

  • Natasha Smith

    Someone above answers this. But someone on SRT recommended using the scripturetyper app. Check it out! I plug in all the verses for each reading plan into a heading together.

      Trying to replying to Julianne down there but the app is glitching and won’t let me!

        So sorry about that Natasha, a new app update will be coming soon that should fix this problem! -Margot, The SRT Team

    The first screen is always in the translation that you have your Bible set to…so that’s different for everyone.

  • Today is Saturday, and I was prepared to do a long study, to have to consider something new, to have to focus on the task at hand. But what a lovely surprise that today, God is reminding me gently to S L O W down and inviting us to take a REST as He commands us to do throughout scripture, to reflect on what has transpired that week, to praise Him for His goodness and mercy, and to be refreshed by His amazing love for us. Thank you Jesus!

  • Your testimony brings tears to my eyes Kathy. Praise God! Rejoicing with you and continuing to pray.

  • I wanted to update all of you on my husband. He had open-heart surgery yesterday. Everything went the way it was supposed to. They went in and repaired the aneurysm and replaced the valve. I got to talk to him last night about 5:30. He was awake (sort of) and off the ventilator. He will be in ICU probably through the weekend and then will be in a room for 3 to 5 days.
    I am almost speechless at the grace and mercy shown to us by our Papa God. The last two weeks have been the worst and the best two weeks of my life. The lessons I have learned, the tenderness I have seen from God, the prayers of His people have absolutely blown me away. Ya’ll, every time I got discouraged or scared, God put a person in my path with the exactly right thing to say, or a song came on the radio, or I opened my Bible and read words that spoke such comfort and peace. All of you in this study were part of that. Your prayers and words of encouragement meant more to me than I could ever say. Please keep praying for healing, for freedom from infection or complications, for strength and yes, I’ll even ask for prayers for patience.
    I am praising God especially loudly today. His hand has been all over this.
    Be blessed, my sweet, precious sisters. I can’t wait to meet all of you someday in heaven.
