If we neglect the reading of God’s Word, then we are offering our minds up to the enemy to fill as he chooses. And what web of lies will he spin?
👉 God has forgotten me (vs 11.)
👉 God doesn’t see the evil happening (vs 11.)
If we neglect the reading of God’s Word, we are left to view our circumstances through our feelings.
👉 The Lord is far away (vs 1.)
👉 The Lord is hiding himself from me (vs 1.)
But, within the pages of God’s Word, we find the truth regarding God, the wicked, and the upright.
👉 The Lord has not forgotten the afflicted (vs 12.)
👉 The wicked will be called out on their wickedness (vs 13, 15.)
👉 The Lord notes all the mischief taking place and is the helper of the helpless (vs 14.)
👉 The Lord is near enough to hear our cries, strengthen our hearts, and listen to our prayers (vs 17.)
👉 The Lord acts justly (vs 18.)
It’s a whole different view when we look at the world through the lens of Scripture.
