Monday! Monday! – read Psalm 119:113-128 – These are words of rescue.
I wonder if Elijah had access to them? Could you imagine him in that cave, meditating on, “You are my refuge and my shield; your word is my source of hope…. Lord, sustain me as you promised, that I may live! Do not let my hope be crushed.” (119:114,116) And maybe, these are just the words you need to receive this fine day.
“My eyes strain to see your rescue, to see the truth of your promise fulfilled.” My friends, even if you are not in a trial today, you most certainly will be at some point. Train yourself now to look for rescue. Hold tightly to the truth of the Lord’s promises. Prepare your heart to do what James instructs, “Consider it great joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you experience various trials,” James 1:2
