Scripture Reading:

Psalm 5:1-12 (NLT2) – O LORD, hear me as I pray; pay attention
to my groaning. 2 Listen to my cry for help, my King and my God,
for I pray to no one but you. 3 Listen to my voice in the morning,
LORD. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait
expectantly. 4 O God, you take no pleasure in wickedness; you
cannot tolerate the sins of the wicked. 5 Therefore, the proud may
not stand in your presence, for you hate all who do evil. 6 You will
destroy those who tell lies. The LORD detests murderers and
deceivers. 7 Because of your unfailing love, I can enter your
house; I will worship at your Temple with deepest awe. 8 Lead me
in the right path, O LORD, or my enemies will conquer me. Make
your way plain for me to follow. 9 My enemies cannot speak a
truthful word. Their deepest desire is to destroy others. Their talk
is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongues are filled
with flattery. 10 O God, declare them guilty. Let them be caught in
their own traps. Drive them away because of their many sins, for
they have rebelled against you. 11 But let all who take refuge in
you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your
protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled
with joy. 12 For you bless the godly, O LORD; you surround them
with your shield of love.

Deuteronomy 10:14 (NLT) – Look, the highest heavens and the earth and
everything in it all belong to the LORD your God.

Job 33:6 (NLT) – Look, you and I both belong to God. I, too, was formed
from clay.

are made great and given strength.
