If you know who to talk to, talk to who you know…
The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time.Psalm 34:19 NLT
Bad things happen to all of us, but the difference is in who we have to talk to about it, and whether they have the power to do anything. “Righteous” is not a score of how right we have been; it is about how our relationship is, with the One who makes us right — and the fruit of that relationship is that we find ourselves enabled to live right.
Lord Jesus, we are so grateful to You for showing us Your kingdom and being the way for us to enter into it.
Thank You so much for taking our sin — pride, independence, rebellion, unbelief, lack of love and more — and putting it on that stained and ugly cross.
Thank You so much for going to that place of torture, shedding Your blood for us to be washed clean, and giving up Your life for us to have new life in You.
And thank You that when the troubler and spoiler of our lives picks on us, we know who to talk to. God our Father, deliver us from evil, because of Jesus. Not because we are righteous in ourselves, but because our lives are hidden in Your righteous Son who died for us.
We believe Your promise to come to the rescue. We put our trust in You, not any strength of our own. We have You. Amen.
