“I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the LORD sustained me. I will not be afraid of many thousands of people who have set themselves against me all around.” Psalms 3:5-6 [ESV] -> me: Today I start my morning Quiet Times! I finished Chapter 3 of Psalms and feel like the message today is so appropriate for where we are in this world that is turning against God more and more. The voice of biblical morality and truth is being ‘canceled’ at every turn. However, just like David, I must realize that I am sustained by the One True God; knowing that everything that is happening is part of His plan to crush the head of the evil one and his followers once and for all. The takeaway for me today is complementary to Pastor Jeff’s message on Patience this Sunday – ‘Not being afraid means to walk into the mess that is where people find themselves today.’ Yesterday David talked about the Lord as a shield about him – bring able to operate in obedience knowing that whatever happens, is by the supporting hand of the Lord; very comforting. So, today I will meditate on these verses, asking God to give me a strong heart and open ear and eye in supporting those around me who are hurting. At the same time leading my family in a way that is honoring to the only One that matters.
