Psalm 27:12 – Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
My reading this morning is very interesting. This verse caught my eye. As I watch the swearing in of the new president, I contemplate who are my enemies? Will my country become my enemy? We find a new mind set that some in this new administration have a tremendous animosity towards Christians. There is a call, rather a written petition which has a thrust of re-educating Christians and denying them a voice. There is a call to roll back the pro-christian legislation. The executive orders that has allowed more freedom for Christians is under attack. The assault against Christians has begun.
I have no fear because God is with me. Psa 27:13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Though this nation moves farther away from God, I have his presence. If you know the Lord as Savior, he continually walks beside you. He is our fortress and our shield. He is our defense. My faith is built on nothing less than Jesus and His righteousness. I stand upon the Rock. This is the Rock that followed Israel from the Egyptian bondage and through the wilderness. He will be my guide, my light and my strength through these difficult days. I praise Him for His love. I pray to him for my help. I rest in His mighty arms of comfort. God Bless.
