06/29 Psalm 120:1-7
1 I took my troubles to the LORD ; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer. 2 Rescue me, O LORD, from liars and from all deceitful people. 3 O deceptive tongue, what will God do to you? How will he increase your punishment?4 You will be pierced with sharp arrows and burned with glowing coals. 5 How I suffer in far-off Meshech. It pains me to live in distant Kedar. 6 I am tired of living among people who hate peace. 7 I search for peace; but when I speak of peace, they want war!
Our Lord delivers us from evil and trains us to conquer our troubles. Everyone has trouble. Christ calls us to deal with today’s troubles in His strength. Don’t worry about tomorrow as today has enough trouble itself.
