Saying What's True
Today's reading: Psalm 11:1-7
When bad things happen to or around us that just don't make sense, it's tempting to question God, doubt Him and to turn away to our follow our own thinking. That's what we see with David at the beginning of Psalm 11 in verses 1-3. But David is able to push this temptation aside and stand firm by proclaiming what he knows is true of God--that He is sovereign and righteous and that "the upright shall behold his face" (vs. 7).
How does stating what you know is true about God (verbally, through journaling or reading scripture passages aloud) help you push aside the temptation to doubt God and take matters into your own hands? What encouragement do you draw from verses 4-7? Tami
