Deceit & Betrayal: Daily Bible Reading -- Psalm 55

Good Morning World!

We as a race are so narrowly focused that we miss the beauty, wonder, grandeur, and glory around us far too often.  This morning is case in point.  After leaving work this morning I only remember noticing a couple of stores, as I purposely looked at them to see if they were open yet as it was very early.  After getting home I realized that I didn't take the time to notice the glory of God's wonderful creation.  I was too preoccupied with my own problems and circumstances that I didn't take time to meet with my creator.  It is a sad day when we are too busy to take some time to meet with the one who makes it all possible.  If someone were to put you in their will, and you were going to inherit a large amount of money and a beautiful estate there would be very little that could keep you away from this benefactor.  You would do what ever you could to keep them happy and satisfied.  However, we have received a greater inheritance from Jesus Christ, and we all to often blow it off by wasting our time worrying over the trivial things of life!

Psalm 55

David had trials galore during this phase of his life.  It would seem these few chapters were written during the time when Saul was chasing him around.  David felt betrayed.  David felt deceived many times.  Yet even though the people closest too him seemed to treat him the worst, David always turned to God for strength.  Why do internalize our problems and circumstances?  Why do we make a mountain out of a mole hill?  Why do we take offence at life events as if we are the be all and end all?  I'm sorry to disappoint you, but you are not the first nor are you the last.  You are not the only one who is feeling as you are, nor are you the only one who has or is facing what you are facing.  Let's be more like David and sing a song of praise to Jesus.  There is nothing like a good upbeat praise and worship song to lift the spirit.

Your's for singing in the rain,
Pastor Fred

This week Lord Jesus we bring the country of Canada. Let the revival of your Word and Name sweep across this vast dominion. Let all ethnic groups that now call this great land home become hungry for something more, and find YOU! Let the Church arise to become the bastion of Truth that it is meant to be.
