The Lord will save you!

LORD we trust in You!

The wicked and the proud will be wiped away by God Almighty. As children of the Lord, we rely on the Him to save us in our troubles and lead through our struggles. We seek forgiveness. We do not seek revenge. We pray for those who have wronged us, as Christ Jesus wants (Matt 5:38-48, 1 Cor. 4:12). We should not plot against other people. The plans of the wicked are squashed by God (Psalms 21:11, Job 5:12). It is right for us to love each other as Christ loves us, and do to other people what we would want to have done to ourselves. By being prayerful and using patience from Jesus Christ, may we endure faithfully until He returns. We should use the Holy Spirit, our fellow brothers and sisters in the church of Christ, and the Word of the Lord for encouragement. We know the Lord's return will be as unexpected as a thief in the night, but He is coming back... real soon.  So, let's be ready!


Proverbs 20:22 NASB
Do not say, "I will repay evil"; Wait for the Lord, and He will save you.


Psalms 10:2 NCV
Proudly the wicked chase down those who suffer. Let them be caught in their own traps.

Proverbs 17:19 CEVUK00
The wicked and the proud love trouble and keep begging to be hurt.

Isaiah 13:11 NKJV
(Lord God saying)
“I will punish the world for its evil, And the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, And will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible."

1 Samuel 2:3 GNT

Stop your loud boasting; silence your proud words. For the Lord is a God who knows, and He judges all that people do.

Job 40:12 NKJV
Look on everyone who is proud, and bring him low; Tread down the wicked in their place.


Psalms 10
Lord, why do You stand so far away? Why do You hide in times of trouble? In arrogance the wicked relentlessly pursue the afflicted; let them be caught in the schemes they have devised. For the wicked one boasts about his own cravings; the one who is greedy curses and despises the Lord . In all his scheming, the wicked arrogantly thinks: “There is no accountability, since God does not exist.” His ways are always secure; Your lofty judgments are beyond his sight; he scoffs at all his adversaries. He says to himself, “I will never be moved — from generation to generation without calamity.” Cursing, deceit, and violence fill his mouth; trouble and malice are under his tongue. He waits in ambush near the villages; he kills the innocent in secret places. His eyes are on the lookout for the helpless; he lurks in secret like a lion in a thicket. He lurks in order to seize the afflicted; he seizes the afflicted and drags him in his net. So he is oppressed and beaten down; the helpless fall because of his strength. He says to himself, “God has forgotten; He hides His face and will never see.” Rise up, Lord God! Lift up Your hand. Do not forget the afflicted. Why has the wicked person despised God? He says to himself, “You will not demand an account.” But You Yourself have seen trouble and grief, observing it in order to take the matter into Your hands. The helpless entrusts himself to You; You are a helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked and evil person; call his wickedness into account until nothing remains of it. The Lord is King forever and ever; the nations will perish from His land. Lord, You have heard the desire of the humble; You will strengthen their hearts. You will listen carefully, doing justice for the fatherless and the oppressed so that men of the earth may terrify them no more.


I hope that you all are comfortable and joyful wherever you are, that your struggles are lessened by the grace of God, and that the peace of our Lord Jesus stays with you! God bless all you, His faithful servants!
