Judge and vindicate me, O God; plead my cause against an ungodly nation.
O rescue me from the deceitful and unjust man!
For You are the God of my strength [my stronghold—in whom I take refuge]; why have You rejected me?
Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.
Then I will go to the altar of God,
To God, my exceeding joy;
With the lyre, I will praise You, O God, my God (Psalms 43)!
One of the most difficult tasks that we are assigned by our King is, live to honor the work on the cross. Jesus did the hard work over 2000 years ago on the cross of Calvary; His blood was poured out on the altar signifying his death. When we are baptized in his death, all of the mess that we brought to Calvary was washed away and the physical stuff that held us back from living a full life in Jesus was put to death. Once something is put to death, we no longer need to carry it around.
May the plan you have for my life and that of my readers be put into action. i know how easy it is to carry around dead weight. You desire for your children to be free from bondage. May your best desires for my life and that of my readers be put into action. I pray for my family and families, the military, law enforcement officer, and EMT communities. I pray for the city of Stacy, State of MN, and my USA.
