Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What is your source of security, hope, and protection? The way of the Lord is a refuge, a strength, a place of security! Let's make sure we live our lives there, knowing that God's commands and demands for righteousness are for our protection as well as his glory.

My Prayer...

Please, dear LORD, help me more perfectly find your will and have the courage to build my life there. I don't want to follow false voices, nor do I want to be tempted away from your truth and righteousness. May your will not only be my delight, but also my refuge. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
