Daily D – Psalm 146:3-6
Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When they breathe their last, they return to the earth, and all their plans die with them. But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God. He made heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them. He keeps every promise forever. (NLT)
Don’t put your life in the hands of experts who know nothing of life, of salvation life. Mere humans don’t have what it takes; when they die, their projects die with them. Instead, get help from the God of Jacob, put your hope in God and know real blessing! God made sky and soil, sea and all the fish in it. He always does what he says— (MSG)
God-confidence beats people-confidence every time. God never fails. He always keeps his promises. People are only as powerful as their lives are long. Their power lasts about as far as an inch along the timeline of the earth. God rules from eternity past through eternity to come. Learn to lean on him. Trust him forever.
God always does what he says.
God keeps every promise forever.
This is the perspective we need as we ponder the craziness going on around us.
This is the truth that sets us free from the insanity of our age.
This is the truth that endures forever.
I will relax and luxuriate in the reality of God’s goodness and perfect plans.
Our Father, you always do what you say. You keep every promise forever. You created this world. You will renovate it. You are working within time to bring about timeless beauty and wonder. Display your goodness so that all may see your better way and special future. Amen.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
