One of my prayer partners shared with the group how she reads through the book of Psalms in a month. Yesterday was the 11th, so you would read chapter 11 and keep adding 30 till you have no chapters left. For the last few days, I have been using this method for my quiet time with God. I read chapters 11, 41, 71, 101, and 131 yesterday morning. In my prayer journal, I wrote down Psalm 11:3 to pray over our nation. “If the foundations are destroyed what can the righteous do?” It appears that all logic or reason has left our country. Is that true?
There is a reason that God teaches His children to keep our eyes looking directly ahead because the appearance of evil has a way of throwing us off balance. At my age, I understand the importance of balance. Just trying to put my foot into my pants without falling over can be tasking. Well, so can allowing evil to keep score. Evil wants you to think that it is winning so you will become discouraged, and God forbid sin. When we allow ourselves to go dark in our thoughts and forget Who’s we are, we insult God. Evil can do the most twisted thing to us. If we are not careful, we can become the very thing that we are fighting against. I grew up in Pensacola, Florida, at the beginning of the abortion clinics and the pro-life protest. One of the pro-life people shot and killed the abortion doctor. Did part of you just say, “What on earth?”
Our refuge is not in a person or public office. I believe that God hears our prayers and will strengthen our hearts. I believe God will vindicate those harmed by the malicious. I know that man’s steps are established by God, and if he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, because God is holding his hand. So, in short, Satan has a lot of cheerleaders shouting his lies. Who cares? The joy of knowing and remembering God’s ways is my strength. I pray it is yours also.
