I WILL WORSHIP YOU
But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward your holy temple. Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make Your way straight before my face. Psalm 5:7,8
It is only because of His mercy and grace that we can take another breath! In fear and respect for this awesome God we worship Him and because of our enemies He makes the way straight before us. I pray almost every day for Him to go before me and make the crooked places straight!
We as believers walk the path of life through a maze of trials, tribulation and death with thousands falling at our side every day! It reminds me of the "Infiltration Course" we traversed in the Marine Corps. A field in which we would cross on our bellies with live fire over our heads and at times rattlesnakes would meet the unsuspecting, making it even more dangerous! Needless to say, it was a harrowing experience, teaching us to be aware of our surroundings in the midst of war!
Today we must also be aware and as the scripture says, be on the alert, your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour! We can rejoice in the fact that God is our defender, our hope in times of trouble and in Him we put our trust!
But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; let them ever shout for joy, because you defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You. For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalm 5:11,12
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
