as I was going through some scripture the other night – a particular section of the Psalms stuck out to me. I wanted to share it with y’all today – hopefully it will encourage and comfort you as it did for me. God’s Word is living and active – and it astounds me how it is constantly reassuring and challenging me.
“You have kept count of my tossings (wanderings), and put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book? Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call. This I know, that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise ,in the Lord, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
did you catch that?
v8: You have kept count of my wanderings and put my tears in your bottle.
God knows my pain. He is present for my joys and my heartbreak. He mourns with me.
& for you.
such a beautiful reminder this morning and every morning. I need to remember that when the enemy comes knocking on my heart. when I am tempted to believe the lies and fall into temptation. God is for me – He loves me – He knows my enemies and knows my hurts – He rejoices in my triumphs and mourns my pain. He is for me – always, without condition. beautiful.
