O you who love the LORD, hate evil!
He preserves the lives of his saints;
he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Light is sown for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name! Psalms 97:10-12
You will notice in the first line “hate evil” is not stated as “hate the wicked person”. We need to repel those things from our lives that we know are harmful. We have no power nor authority to stop people from being wicked but we can be the light that pulls them from the darkness. For us to propel light, it has to come from within us with works to back up our claim.
Thank you for your word that lights our pathway. When we walk in the light, Your light shines through us (John 8:31-32). My prayer is that no matter what I face that I keep my eyes on you. Jesus thank you for your amazing gift of salvation. May the story of my life encourage others in their walk. I pray for my family and those who are enduring struggles today. I pray for the military, law enforcement, and EMT communities that you will be with every one of them and bring them safely home. I pray over our politicians that you will continue to shake them to their core with the message of the Ephod so that they fully understand who they serve. I pray for the city of Stacy, the state of Minnesota, and the USA may your Spirit fall fresh upon us. I pray for the truckers who carry supplies to our communities. I thank you for healing our land by rain that refreshes the land and the storms that shake the heart of mankind. I pray for those who need a special touch from you today. Finally, I pray that my words will always be an encouragement to all who read these words in Jesus’ name I pray. May your peace be upon my family, city, state, nation, and world. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer (Psalms 19:14).
