Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the three-year lectionary.
There is a great confidence that comes from trusting in the God of the Bible. While our world may mistake the confidence for some sort of arrogance, it is not. The reading from Psalm 5 describes a living God who is good. His perfect care for his people protects them from all evil. He gives true peace.
What does this say for those who would oppose God’s will? Life and eternity do not look good for them. The God of the Bible is not the type to be gentle with those who persist in opposing him. He cares enough for his people that their enemies will ultimately be destroyed. Why is this? Because they are standing against his will.
Where do we stand? Are we looking to God for his care and protection? Are we willing to stand against him, thinking he might not be real, that he might not be serious in his warnings? I would much rather look for the Lord’s protective care.
