The Lord does not despise His who are prisoners
Read this Psalm this morning while reading a book "Living in Victory". What an encouraging Psalm!
29 But I am afflicted and in pain;
May Your salvation, O God, set me securely on high.
30 I will praise the name of God with song
And magnify Him with thanksgiving.
31 And it will please the Lord better than an ox
Or a young bull with horns and hoofs.
32 The humble have seen it and are glad;
You who seek God, let your heart revive.
33 For the Lord hears the needy
And does not despise His who are prisoners.
He did not despise Israel when they were held captive by the Babylonians and he does not despise His children who are held captive by our enemies; the flesh, world, and Satan and his horde. His mercies are renewed every morning!
Grace to you,
"May the Lamb that was slain receive the just reward for His sufferings." A quote by Moravian missionary that sold himself (along with a friend) into slavery to reach those that the slave owner prevented from hearing the gospel.
May I live for Him and not for me.
