“God Will Not Forsake…”

Blessings folk!

Are you trusting in the Lord?

Hear the Word of the Lord…

Psa 9:1-10

For the choir director; on Muth-labben. A Psalm of David.
I will give thanks to the LORD with all my heart;
I will tell of all Your wonders.

I will be glad and exult in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.

When my enemies turn back,
They stumble and perish before You.

For You have maintained my just cause;
You have sat on the throne judging righteously.

You have rebuked the nations, You have destroyed the wicked;
You have blotted out their name forever and ever.

The enemy has come to an end in perpetual ruins,
And You have uprooted the cities;
The very memory of them has perished.

But the LORD abides forever;
He has established His throne for judgment,

And He will judge the world in righteousness;
He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.

The LORD also will be a stronghold for the oppressed,
A stronghold in times of trouble;

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You,
For You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.

Note what the Psalmist, David…who trusted in the Lord, does.
