Today's Verse: Psalm 34:21 (KJV)

Wednesday, October 19, 2005

Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
— Psalm 34:21 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God has promised a closing time, a reckoning where human power and influence cannot buy out the truth and where each person will have to face up to what he or she has done. Evil will overtake those who have been partners with evil. Those that hate good people, righteous people, will be condemned in their own hate. God's righteousness, truth, and justice will not be short-circuited!

My Prayer...

Father, thank you for making clean and whole by the purifying work of your Holy Spirit. Teach me to be righteous. Help me develop a revulsion for what is sinful and evil. Use me to help someone caught in the evil one's work to find deliverance. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
