KEY VERSEPsalm 125:4
O Lord, do good to those who are good, whose hearts are in tune with you.

When you trust me, you are secure. When you put your hope in me, you are stable. Winds will blow. Storms will come. Following me does not remove you from the world or from experiencing the challenges the natural world and other people stir up. But being with me insures you will make it. You may bend or be blown over, but I will pick you up. Defeat is no longer part of your life. You’ll experience temporary setbacks, but if you continue to seek me, I will use those for my glory and strengthen you through them.

There is evil in the world but it will not last. The pain the world endures will be limited. There will be a day when I make all things right—when evil is judged and eliminated and righteousness is recognized and exalted. You are never forgotten. Regardless of what is going on around you, I am with you and will provide. Seek me and follow me.

Thank God for his protection, and seek his blessing. Take time right now to acknowledge what he has done in your life, and share any burdens or concerns on your heart.
