Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalm 37:1-4)
As we experience more and more the hand of our God upon our life, a great desire seems to well up inside to do the things that please God. Sometimes the going gets rough and we find it hard to trust in the shadow of His Wings. The elements of this world seem to be greater than our deliver. Apostle Paul gave us some very good advice. It is found in the book of Ephesians, chapter 6 verse 11; Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Yes beloved, Jesus does love you always; even in times of adversity. So much so, that he ordained, "spiritual armor,"to be clothed with; that you and I may never be overcome by the fiery darts of any situation.
Have you on this spiritual armor? Perhaps there is a hole or two in it. Let's go before God with worship and praise, Jesus will mend the breaches. Let our worship be the needle, our praise be the thread and the lifting of our hands the finished product. Praise the Lord!
