People may reject you…does God?

Courage  |  November 9

Righteous are You, O LORD, and upright are Your judgments.
Your testimonies, which You have commanded, are righteous and very faithful.
My zeal has consumed me, because my enemies have forgotten Your words.
Your word is very pure; therefore Your servant loves it.
I am small and despised, yet I do not forget Your precepts.
Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth.
Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, yet Your commandments are my delights.
The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; give me understanding, and I shall live

Psalm 119:137-144


Father, the Psalmist proclaims his love and loyalty and then laments over the loneliness of his circumstance because his enemies do not seek You and love You.

Father, give us courage when we feel that our witness is not well received. Give us understanding in the face of rejection, when it occurs. In the eyes of many, we are insignificant. If it were not for Your approval we would feel out of step, not always fitting in.

Help us, today, to know that our purpose in seeking You rises above any earthly, transitional concerns we may have. Encourage us and bless us we pray, in Jesus’ name, amen.

March 1, 2021 Are we a conduit of God's gifts? February 28, 2021 Should we expect to suffer as a result of our witness? February 27, 2021 When you meet Jesus, will He say, welcome friend... February 26, 2021 Private prayer, a compelling prelude to God's constant presence February 25, 2021 Love God and hate our neighbor...not an option. February 24, 2021 Do you mean that God knew whether I would choose to love Him? February 23, 2021 Did you say enduring persecution is a good thing?
