Day 12, Psalm 12
This psalm compares the flattery and empty promises we experience in the world with God’s impeccable record at keeping His promises and acting justly. I have been duped by flattery and led right into believing empty promises, more than one time in my life. Some of those losses really hurt and soon I became hesitant to believe anyone’s word.
Thankfully, our God in heaven is not a person. His promises are pure and trust-worthy. If you need to accept that statement in faith, that’s okay, over time you will see that it’s true. This is one of my favorite promises to stand on, give it a try: (Isaiah 41:13) “For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear, I will help you.”
We trust you Lord.
See you tomorrow for Psalm 13
