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)
