Do me justice, O LORD, because I am just,
and because of the innocence that is mine.
Let the malice of the wicked come to an end,
but sustain the just,
O searcher of heart and soul, O just God. (Ps 7:9-10)
There are times when we just want to throw our hands up in the air and say, “I give up!”
The endless abuse because we are believers, the constant invitations from the world to abandon the faith, the pressure from so many just mounts up.
Sadly, there are many who succumb to the pressure, who do give up their faith.
God is a just God and a loving God.
God is our protector and our shield.
God will keep us from all the snares of the world.
All we need to do is put our trust in Him.
That is not as easy as it sounds since, in order to put all our trust in Him, we need to quit trying to do it on our own.
Without God’s help, we will fail.
With God’s help, nothing will be impossible. We will succeed.
FAITH ACTION: Pray for those who are persecuted for doing the will of the Father. Pray, also, for strength to accomplish God’s will in your daily life.
