I LOVE our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan! We use this same plan, reading through the Bible chronologically, year after year, and yet each and every day is completely relevant to the times that we are living in! Only GOD can do that! Today's Psalm is an exhortation and encouragement to God's righteous people who are being blasphemed, ridiculed, persecuted, wrongly charged, slandered and attacked for no other reason than that they ARE God's people, and are standing for what is RIGHT according to the Word of God. Those who reject the Truth of God's Word will go to any lengths to try to stop or silence the Word from going out and from being heard and acted on. And we KNOW that the people themselves are simply clueless pawns in the hands of a spiritual enemy! Look at Psalm 94:1-11:
The psalmist is calling on the Lord to vindicate them, and then answers his own questions and pleas with the Word of the Living God! Verses 12-17 is more encouragement for the righteous to hold on strong to the Lord and to His Word!
Then verses 21-23 tell what the enemy has done and what the LORD is doing and will do in answer to the attacks!
The LORD will wipe out the lawsuits, slanders, charges and lies against His anointed! Those allowing themselves to be used by the enemy to hurt God's Anointed will see their targets vindicated and themselves charged! But the truly great aspect of our wonderful Lord and Saviour is that He will give them the opportunity to repent (change their thinking to agree with God) and then they, too, can call upon the Name of the Lord to be saved! AMEN! Learn, and choose, to see every situation as an opportunity for YOU to represent JESUS well, and for HIM to show Himself strong and powerful, drawing ALL men unto Himself! AMEN! And isn't THAT why we are all still here, anyway? Sharing the Good News so that all of the 'whosoever wills' can be saved? YES! Here is Hillsong with "No Reason To Hide":
Shalom in Him!
