Psalm 56Psalm 57Psalm 58Psalm  64Psalm 65
Jeremiah 1:11-19
Romans 1:1-15John 4:27-42

My heart is steadfast, o God, my heart is steadfast. Psalm 57:7

Psalms 56 and 57 are cries for help with the vicissitudes of life. Yet each also acknowledges that we need not walk this life alone; nor do we need to trust solely in our own abilities. Psalm 57 ends with the acknowledgment that the steadfast loving kindness of God is “greater than the heavens,” and “extends to the clouds” – it is constant. We have been promised that we have a light to guide us in our walk on this earth.
