The time is coming….

Psalm 7:8-17

The LORD judges the nations.
Declare me righteous, O LORD,
for I am innocent, O Most High! End the evil of those who are wicked,
and defend the righteous.
For you look deep within the mind and heart,
O righteous God. God is my shield,
saving those whose hearts are true and right. God is an honest judge.
He is angry with the wicked every day. If a person does not repent,
God will sharpen his sword;
he will bend and string his bow. He will prepare his deadly weapons
and shoot his flaming arrows. The wicked conceive evil;
they are pregnant with trouble
and give birth to lies. They dig a deep pit to trap others,
then fall into it themselves. The trouble they make for others backfires on them.
The violence they plan falls on their own heads. I will thank the LORD because he is just;
I will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

Source of joy and peace

“Open my eyes to the wonderful truths in your law.

I have chosen to be faithful; I have determined to live by your laws.

Lord, give me your unfailing love, the salvation that you promised me. Then I will have an answer for those who taunt me,for I trust in your word. Do not snatch your word of truth from me, for my only hope is in your laws. I will keep on obeying your lay forever and forever.

May all who fear you find in me a cause for joy, for I have put my hope in your word. I know, O Lord, that your decisions are fair; you disciplined me because I needed it. Now let your unfailing love comfort me, just as you promised me, your servant. Surround me with your tender mercies so I may live, for your law is my delight.

Those who love your law have great peace and do not stumble.”

Psalm 119:18, 30, 41-44, 74-77, 165 NLT
