Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, Which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, So the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. Psalm 125 NKJV
God is the strength of His people. People who trust in the Lord stand like mighty mountains. Nothing can snatch us from His might hands. We will live forever in His loving presence!
God is at work in our lives 24/7. He never sleeps. He never rests. He never takes His mind off of His beloved. Jesus never turns His back on us or leaves us to ourselves. Healing and deliverance are guaranteed to people who love the Lord!
I have heard people say Christians who walk by faith do not get sick. I have heard it said if we have enough faith we may not taste death at all. That is incorrect!
God wants us to have an eternal perspective. The death rate is 100%. So is the percentage of Christians who will live out eternity in the presence of the Lord!
For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity. Vs 3
Evil will not plague us forever. That can be difficult to believe when we suffer heartbreaking loss and debilitating pain. Today we view things through the dim light of a sin tainted creation. God wants to change our perspective.
Do good, O Lord, to those who are good, And to those who are upright in their hearts. Vs 4
We are not good because we go to church on Sundays. We are not good because we read our bibles or call ourselves Christians. Not because we sin less than other people. We are good in God’s eyes because He washed away our sin and brought us back into relationship with Jesus!
God created us to join Him in the loving relationship He existed in before time began. Jesus created us to play a very specific role in His creation. God created us in His image and likeness to represent Him on the earth. Will you do that? How will you do it?
Jesus wants you to live for Him. He wants to form His life in you. Jesus wants to live out His life through you!
Giving our hearts to Jesus is easier said than done. It is also much easier than it sounds. There is nothing we can do to earn His favor and love. We can receive His love the same way a child receives love.
We can rest in the assurance that our God has us in the palms of His might hands!
Rest in the love and protection of your Heavenly Father today!
