Never lose faith and hope in challenging environments.
Suit up, in the full armor, of God, and walk by faith.
137 Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.
138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.
139 My zeal hath consumed me, because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.
140 Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.
141 I am small and despised: yet do not I forget thy precepts.
142 Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
143 Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.
144 The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.
Eight scripture reference to verses:
O LORD God of Israel, thou art righteous: for we remain yet escaped, as it is this day: behold, we are before thee in our trespasses: for we cannot stand before thee because of this.
Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee: yet let me talk with thee of thy judgements: Wherefore doth the way of the wicked prosper? wherefore are all they happy that deal very treacherously?
O LORD, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee.
Therefore hath the LORD watched upon the evil, and brought it upon us: for the LORD our God is righteous in all his works which he doeth: for we obeyed not his voice.
For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up: and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgements of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
Abundant blessings and have a marvelous day!
The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.
As always, I welcome your thoughts.
