Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/01/16

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

jesus_white“The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The Lord helps them and delivers them…”    (Psalm 37:39-40a)

God sees things from an eternal perspective and He does not change His laws or ways. When the nation kept sinning and breaking God’s laws, and God’s patience was running out, He would punish His people, Israel, by saddling them with an evil king who had little regard for God and who would pervert the laws and ways of God. If the people did not learn and repent of their sins, then that king would be followed by another one just as bad, and sin and corruption would continue. Yet to those who belonged to Him, God remained true. Though they too had to suffer the hardships brought by evil, those who trusted in Him, God stood beside. Those who had faith, God delivered. Let us have faith in Him to whom we belong.

May the Lord bless you to stand strong in Him in these days.
