Tuesday, July 11th: Psalms 1-3; Acts 17:1-15 ~ Jody's Posts

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is: Psalms 1-3; Acts 17:1-15
Lord, how many are my foes!
    How many rise up against me!
Many are saying of me,

    “God will not deliver him.[d]
 But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
    my glory, the One who lifts my head high.I call out to the Lord,
    and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and sleep;
    I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. I will not fear though tens of thousands
    assail me on every side.

                                   Psalms 3:1-6

I just love the imagery in these verses. Even though David is being pursued by Absalom to be killed and overthrown from his throne, he can rest in the Lord. And here I think I have troubles sometimes!! If David can rest in the power of the Lord at a time like that, I can surely rest in God with my troubles. 

We serve the same, unchanging, unwavering God of David, let's be encouraged to praise and trust Him just as David did!

Yes, my daily turmoil is also far less then what David was going through. David trusted in God throughout, so should I.

So true Jody!

I love Psalm 1 - it's the first chapter I memorized in the Bible.

Acts 17:11b. They received the word with all eagerness, examining the scriptures daily to see if these things were so.

We too need to examine the things we are taught to ensure they line up with scripture.
