Psalm 12 is the cry of the sensitive believer today oppressed by the society in which we live! Where are the godly ones? Where are the people living for the Lord? Faithfulness is disappearing. Instead what is seen?
Two faced people.
People with no restraint over their mouths.
The wicked strutting around with approval.
Is there encouragement in this scenario? Yes!
The words of the LORD are pure words;
What refreshment! I love this! God’s words are pure and can be trusted.
God will never lie or flatter or say what He doesn’t mean!
I bank my life on His word! This is why I read my Bible and think about what He says. People’s words fail. What a contrast with God’s word.
I’m with Jeremiah…
Your words were found and I ate them,
So, today here in the Blue Ridge mountains, it’s a really rainy day. Yesterday we were able to hike in the mist and drippy rain, but I fear today is different. What adventure lies ahead of us today? This is my view as I read my Bible today. Ahhhhh!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
