God Does Answer Our Pleas!

(Below are two portions of my random Daily Reading!)

Psalm 37:1–18

He Will Not Forsake His Saints

Of David.

37:1   Fret not yourself because of evildoers;

    be not envious of wrongdoers!

2   For they will soon fade like the grass

    and wither like the green herb.

3   Trust in the LORD, and do good;

    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.1

4   Delight yourself in the LORD,

    and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5   Commit your way to the LORD;

    trust in him, and he will act.

6   He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,

    and your justice as the noonday.

7   Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;

    fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,

    over the man who carries out evil devices!

8   Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!

    Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.

9   For the evildoers shall be cut off,

    but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land

Hebrews 6:13–20

The Certainty of God’s Promise

13 For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, 14 saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” 15 And thus Abraham,1 having patiently waited, obtained the promise. 16 For people swear by something greater than themselves, and in all their disputes an oath is final for confirmation. 17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of his purpose, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us. 19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, 20 where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.

From Bob; (“Praise the Lord”)
