“The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”
- God is loving and just. His victory is eternal regardless of those who oppose you, hurt you, or try to destroy you. Do not be satisfied with earthly comfort and treasures, because of the threats or promises of man, and give up what God has in store for those who love Him. Any man you trust needs to have the same love, salvation, and security in God that you do. God will love you, save you and keep you, so stay the course always.
Matthew 10:28 “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
Colossians 3:23-24 “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”
Psalm 118:28 “You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God; I will extol you.”
Dear Lord, may our job, spouse, friends, peers, or even our Church, never take priority over You. Amen
