January 04, A Spacious Place

Today’s Reading: Psalms 16-20

“He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me” - Psalm 18:16-19.

Time and again in the book of Psalms, the writers wrote and sang about their trouble and how the Lord rescued and delivered them. In today’s passage, the psalmist stated that the Lord brought him into what he referred to as a “spacious place.” What does a spacious place represent for you? Ministry or professional growth? A larger family? Greater influence or wealth? A role where you can be who God made you to be, surrounded by people who appreciate and don’t envy or limit you? In your journal, take a few minutes to write about what an ideal “spacious place” would look like for you. Then trust the Lord to help you find such a place!
