90 Days Through The Bible Day 41: Psalm 31-60

I feel like the only thing I read is David asking for deliverance from his enemies and praising the Lord for the deliverance. I realize that David had his struggles and trials and they often went to war, but it seemed like a lot of repetition. Now that I am thinking about it, how often do I ask for deliverance from the Lord? Am I truly relying on God? What does that mean? If I ask for deliverance, what am I really asking for? I view deliverance as victory over a situation, to be rid of a problem or situation with a positive outcome, and most importantly a reliance on God. As believers have been delivered from the fate of those who do not believe in Christ. Do you ask for deliverance from the Lord, do you depend on the Lord?

I was also reminded during my reading to grant mercy to others and as a reward I will be granted mercy back. Mercy is defined as compassion for someone else. During service this week, our pastor taught on Romans 14 and how as christians we are to show mercy to other believers in the form of being sensitive to what may cause others to stumble and to accept others as they are and where they are. I know that I need to get better about accepting others as they are and I am sure I am not the only one. Lately, have your actions towards others been merciful and full of grace?
