Thankful for sustaining grace!

Scripture reading for June 13th:  Psalm 52-56

Key Scriptures:  Psalm 55:22-23  “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.  But You, O God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of corruption; bloodthirsty and deceitful men will not live out half their days.  But as for me, I trust in You.”  

The psalmist David was surrounded by jealous enemies and even friends that sought to betray him.  He learned to depend on God to sustain him by crying out to God at all times of the day.  He cast all his cares on the Lord and depended on Him for protection and ultimate vindication.  David knew that God promised to uphold the righteous and punish the wicked eternally.

Thankful for God’s sustaining grace:  “Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”  (1st Peter 5:6-7)

Rejoice in the Lord!

Scripture reading for March 24th:  2nd Samuel 2-6

Key Scriptures:  2nd Samuel 5:18-20 “Now the Philistines had come and spread out in the Valley of Rephaim; so David inquired of the Lord, “Shall I go and attack the Philistines?  Will You hand them over to me?”  The Lord answered him, “Go, for I will surely hand the Philistines over to you.”  So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them.  He said, “As waters break out, the Lord has broken out against my enemies before me.”  

After being anointed as Israel’s king, David came under attack from the Philistines.  He inquired of the Lord for directions and help and God answered faithfully!  David gave God the credit for their defeat!

Rejoicing in the Lord:  We can rejoice in the Lord and be anxious about nothing!  God hears and answers!  “Humble yourselves under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time.  Cast all you anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”  (1st Peter 5:6-7)
