Today's Good News


4/16 Psalm 22:12-24
My enemies surround me like a herd of bulls; fierce bulls of Bashan have hemmed me in! 13 Like roaring lions attacking their prey, they come at me with open mouths. 14 My life is poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart is like wax, melting within me. 15 My strength has dried up like sunbaked clay. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You have laid me in the dust and left me for dead. 16 My enemies surround me like a pack of dogs; an evil gang closes in on me. They have pierced my hands and feet. 17 I can count every bone in my body. My enemies stare at me and gloat. 18 They divide my clothes among themselves and throw dice for my garments. 19 O LORD, do not stay away! You are my strength; come quickly to my aid! 20 Rescue me from a violent death; spare my precious life from these dogs. 21 Snatch me from the lions’ jaws, and from the horns of these wild oxen. 22 Then I will declare the wonder of your name to my brothers and sisters. I will praise you among all your people. 23 Praise the LORD, all you who fear him! Honor him, all you descendants of Jacob! Show him reverence, all you descendants of Israel! 24 For he has not ignored the suffering of the needy. He has not turned and walked away. He has listened to their cries for help.
The Lord is our help. In good times and bad the Lord is with us. When we are suffering He suffers with us. He will see us through. He is our strength. The Lord God Almighty is in control of our life and of all things. He will not leave nor will He deceive us. Jesus loves us and will stand with us as we journey through each day of our life.
