Good Thoughts for Bad Times

by · 6 comments

What follows is Psalm 12.  While reading it today the Lord revealed how pertinent it is to our world today.  Evil men prevailing in leadership abound today, but the Lord’s Word stands, and eventually all men will be judged for their actions in this life.

Psalm 12

[1] HELP LORD; for the goldy man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. [2] They speak vanity everyone with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. [3] The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: [4] Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? [5] For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. [6] The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. [7] Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. [8] The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.

Lord have mercy

May the Lord have mercy on us, a wicked and froward generation.  We are wise to humble ourselves, and to return to the Word of the Lord, to read it, to obey it, to exalt it!  That we may again prosper and have joy and have peace.

I will start with myself, we all must.  Return to the Lord, know His Word, thrive, and prosper!

Our nation as a whole needs to cry out to the Lord and turn from their wicked ways. If we don’t, then we haven’t even begun to see bad times yet.

We should always ask for His mercy, because he sees all are efforts and hard work we do to survive. Ask for His guidance to keep us and our family safe every where we go.
