Join me in reading through the Bible in One Year! We will follow a reading plan together and go beyond just reading the Bible, to studying it. We will post about the passage and learn from each other as we grow in our walk with the Lord.
Join me in the pursuit of discernment!

Thursday, January 24th: Genesis 48:1 - 49:33, Matthew 15:29 - 16:12, Psalm 20:1-9, Proverbs 4:20-27 ~ Nathan
Psalm 20: 7-8
(7) Some nations boast of their chariots and horses, but we boast in the name of the Lord our God.
(8) Those nations will fall down and collapse, but we will rise up and stand firm.
These verses reminded me of how safe I feel living in North America and I am very thankful for that. We have dangerous areas in our cities, but overall it is very safe here compared to other parts of the world. We have so many things to be thankful for.
But this will come to an end at some point and we won't always be able to trust in our own country or society to keep us safe.
The only sure thing that lasts forever is God, and the only true "safety" we can find is in God. We need to stand firm for Him now.
