Good Morning March 27

How do you want to start your day? It may be a routine day with nothing particular ahead. Maybe it is a busy one with a lot of tasks needing attention. You may be facing trials, illness, or some other difficulty. We can’t make light of these and pretend they are not there. Yet in spite of all this day may hold, the Lord is there. How about starting it with the words of the Psalmist? “The LORD is my light and my salvation– whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life– of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.” (27:1-4) We really never know what is ahead, but we do know that our Lord occupies our days. We can say “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.”(vss.13-14)
