This passage is really what I needed to see today. In hard times, I know God has an unfailing love for me and everyone around me.
1Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
These psalms are all about how God fights battles alongside and for us and gives us aid against enemies. In the midst of George Floyd’s death, among others, I sit here wondering how God is working in the midst of this. He helps us fight enemies, and justice and vengeance are His, but what is he doing now? What words can I say or actions can I take and what should I leave to God? It is confusing and saddening, but taking some sort of action and saying something is better than remaining silent. As Christians, yes we have God working for us and in us, but we also have the responsibility to not stay silent and stand for and with our black brothers and sisters.
The answer to all sin is the power of salvation in Jesus Christ. Leading all people to the saving forgiving love of Jesus will change hearts and minds through the working of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. God changes hearts from the inside out. First find Jesus and the attitudes and actions will be changed with God’s help and direction. Be bold in this time of social upheaval to tell the good news of Jesus. Love others by sharing Christ with them and treating others as you would like to be treated. Don’t forget that in God’s eyes all people are created in His image!
28Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he delivered them from their distress.
29He made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
