Today’s PrayerPoint ~ Psalm 16
“Keep me safe, O God, for in you I take refuge. I said to the Lord, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing. ” Psalm 16:1-2
There are always difficulties. Since the Fall of Man, there have been wars and disease and sin.
Theirs…Yours… and Mine.
And God continues to offer His grace and mercy and forgiveness and love. Along with those good things, He reminds us:
whatever is true,
whatever is honorable, whatever is just,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.” Philippians 4:8
Now, more than ever, I wonder where things are headed in our world. There is so much corruption, pain, illness, and death that I need to reorient my thinking multiple times a day. As Scripture says,
“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 1:9
Life is hard. God is good. And God’s goodness is not dependent on my circumstances.
