Ps 129-132,2 Cor. 4:4 Since its inception, Israel has been hated because our enemy, Satan, blinds the minds lest they see the glory of Christ. Believers, too, face this same hatred and its source is the same. So how do we face it? The psalmist reminds us that we remember that the love of Christ is stronger than any hate the world can throw at us. Instead, cry out to the Lord and pray, Lord, listen, Lord, pay attention!
Instead, pray as Jesus did: Lord, forgive them for they know not what they do. [Luke 23:34]
And we too must do as the psalmist: check our heart! Is it proud? Do we have a haughty look thinking we are better just because we are believers? Do we have great aspirations or concern ourselves with things out of our control? Do we seek to go to the Lord in prayer and ask Him to calm our heart and quiet it finding content before Him?
Today, spend time in prayer seeking His face and beholding His beauty as you wait for His timing and plan.
