Psalms 138:8 “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.”


In this psalm, King David is declaring his total faith and trust in the Lord to perfect all things that concern his life.  King David knows that the Lord is His Perfect Creator and that His ways are perfect; therefore, he trusts completely in the Lord’s perfection of all things concerning him. 


In Philippians 1:6, the Lord promises to complete the good work that He began in me; therefore, I am fully persuaded by the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit that the Lord –  the Author and Finisher of my faith (Hebrews 12:2) – will perfect all things concerning me.  Furthermore, regardless of the circumstances in my life at any time, I place my full faith and confidence in the Lord because He promises to work all things together for my good (Romans 8:28).


Heavenly Father, I praise You for You are Jehovah M’Kaddesh, the Lord Who Sanctifies! Thank You Lord for loving me so much that You care about every detail of my life.   Strengthen me Lord as I place my total trust in You to perfect all things concerning me.  I love You Jesus! Amen!
