Scripture Graphics #68

Reflecting on God’s faithfulness and truth will lead us to more genuine and frequent exaltation and praise. The rest of the passage gives points of God’s faithfulness and truth:
- He is victorious (vs. 2)
- He is strength to the poor and needy (vs. 4)
- He is a refuge from the storm, shadow from the heat (vs. 5)
- He makes His people to feast on good things (vs. 6)
- He has swallowed up death in victory, will wipe all tears off all faces (vs. 8)
- He has saved us (vs. 9)

Rebellion is not always open and blatant. On the outside, those were taking counsel and making the right appearance—but it was their heart that was rebellious. We might fool those around us, but a rebellious heart never passes God’s notice.

Not only does God provide us armor for spiritual warfare (Eph 6:10-18), He also teaches us how we are to fight.

And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure. (Isaiah 33:6)
What is the stability of our times? Our strength? Our treasure? If the answers are not God alone (His wisdom, His knowledge), then we will be sorely disappointed, and we are setting ourselves up for a fall.

What is a verse you turn to in times of fear or trouble?

#3 is actually one I go to a lot! Funny, I was thinking about it this morning, because 2 Samuel 22 has similar themes.
