upon them that hope in his mercy.
19 To deliver their soul from death and to keep them alive in famine.
20 Out soul waiteth for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.
21 For out heart shall rejoice in him because we have trusted in his holy name.
22 Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.
Last night I read the book of Daniel, chapter 9 as well as some appendixes that went with it. Reading it brought to my attention once again how real the Bible is, how very real God is and how soon Jesus is coming back! I thought all night about having the Fear of God in life. The fear of God isn’t fear as in being scared of him for those who are unfamilar with this term.. The Fear of God is a reverance and obedience for how great and powerful he is… loving and merciful and also mighty Judge and King! He holds everything in his hands. His desire is that we, his kids would HOPE in his mercy and seek after him. Then he turns to us, he hears us, and he saves us from the darkness we are in without him.
When we trust in Jesus as our Savior, our soul rejoices in this. As verse 19 says ,HE is our help and our sheild.
If we and when we put our fear or our trust in MAN, we serve man. And as we all know, man Fails! When we put our fear and trust in God, we serve God, and he will never leave us or forsake us.
Yes, Bad things do happen. Things that we do not understand. People ask God why… they blame him. Yet we live in a world of evil, of sin and immorality. God, who created us, and Loves us, and Longs for relationship with us…gave us free will to choose our lives, and our eternity. God created everything Good.. it is sin that corrupt things! imagine how it greives him to see his children walking in darkness, pain, sickness…. yet he waits …. for US to want to Love him!
My hope is in You Lord. My sterngth is in you Lord. My Life is in you Lord!
