I loved today's Psalms!!!
I love these lament Psalms. When people feel hopeless or desperate, I often direct them here! But verse 11 really stuck out to me today, "God is a righteous judge, a God who is angry at evil, every single day."
I wonder if I am angry at evil every day? When I lie or cheat. When others hurt or bully those in need. Do I choose with my dollars to support businesses who help or those who take advantage of the weak? How do I work for justice and righteousness in the world?
Verses 4 and 5 are questions I ask all the time. How amazing is it that God actually cares about us? That God loves us. We aren't mighty or beautiful or even good. We are lowly. Yet God loves us anyway!
I'm going to leave today knowing I am loved, even when I don't deserve it. I am going to go away knowing that God has always been mighty and powerful and loving. I am going to take those lessons with me.
What will you take with you?
Dear God--Thank you for loving me. Help me to love those you love and hate the evil. Help me to see your promises and live into them. Forgive me my sins. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
