Selah, Words of Thanks For It is Needed

Tuesday, July 13, 2021

We see the light so clearly

in the world around us that is so dark.

Psalm 3:3-4

But you, O Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, and the one who lifts up my head. I cry aloud to the Lord, and God answers me from God’s holy hill. Selah

Luke 1:49

The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is God’s name.

Words of Grace For Today

God is our shield, our glory, the one who lifts up our heads. We cry aloud to the Lord and God answers us.

God, the Mighty One, has done great things for us.

God’s great work for us give us great hope and sustenance each day.

This is good, for the assurance that God does good things for us begins with a simple word ‘but’, which indicates that it is not so with others.

Others do other with us so that we need God as a shield around us!

Don’t we all know it … if we are paying attention.

Because God hears us, cares for us, shields us, walks with us, and forgives, redeems, and renews us … because God gives us all we need for life …

Therefore we receive all that God has for us, share it with all we can, pursue a life of kindness, and sing thanks with Selah!
