Daily Read - 1 Chronicles 7:1-8:40; Acts 27:1-20; Psalm 7:1-17; Proverbs 18:22
Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end,
But establish the just;
For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.
My defense is of God,
Who saves the upright in heart.
Dear Heavenly Father, as I watch the powerful waves of the ocean crash against earth's shore, or I stand in an alpine meadow gazing up at majestic mountain peaks piercing through white clouds into pristine blue skies; I am reminded, My God is an awesome God.
When I contemplate the delicate balance required to maintain the earth's ecosystems and the enormous amount of magnetic pull needed to keep the earth in place; I am reminded, My God is an awesome God!
Regardless what wicked device comes against me, I know You are my defense and will save the upright in heart. I place my life in Your hands assured I stand established in the midst of Your extravagant love.
You have prepared me well for You have taken me through many tests and lessons in life. Though the wolf huffs and puffs, he cannot blow my house down because it is established on the solid Rock of my salvation. The winds of adversity may blow and the seas of tumultuous circumstances may rage, but I stand because I have made You my place of refuge.
Those things I see with my natural eye are temporal and subject to change by Your sovereign intervention. I choose to place my sight on those things that are unseen because they reside in the eternal realm of Your Glory. They remain sure and unshakeable, steady and unmovable.
As I keep my eyes fixed on Your awesomeness, nothing this world throws my way can shake my faith. I lift my eyes to the hills - for where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2 - Amen!
