Be vigilant and repeatedly seek time with the Lord in order to grow in relationship with Him and resist evil.
As our refuge, as our source of protection, as One who abundantly loves us, God can and will listen as we plead our case.
We wait and hope for the perpetual morning, when all will be made right.
Even when we don’t feel God’s presence or God’s care for us, we know that God is present, and God is caring for his people.
Perhaps the psalmist is right: those who listen to God’s word, who know it, who follow it, they are flourishing.
Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees. It's helpful to retreat back to the stream in order to regain a longer, broader view of things.
