Once again, I pulled myself out of the mire and squirmed in pain through church so that I would be touched by the Lords mercy. To be reminded that He is almighty, strong, worthy, righteous and Holy. Through His sovereignty, he guides me when I need Him the most. The muzzle of His hand covers my mouth in times of persecution so that through quiet reflection He will be glorified and praised.
Psalm 119: 41-48 (ESV)
41 Let your steadfast love come to me, O Lord,
your salvation according to your promise;
42 then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me,
for I trust in your word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
for my hope is in your rules.
44 I will keep your law continually,
forever and ever,
45 and I shall walk in a wide place,
for I have sought your precepts.
46 I will also speak of your testimonies before kings
and shall not be put to shame,
47 for I find my delight in your commandments,
which I love.
48 I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love,
and I will meditate on your statutes.
