December 24, Today’s thought – Speak Peace

P1030499Merry Christmas Eve

Good Morning

I have been reading Psalm 85 over and over
since our pastor mentioned it in a sermon recently.
These verses keep speaking to my heart.

Psalm 85:1-2,7-13
Lord, thou hast been favourable unto thy land:
thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people,
thou hast covered all their sin.
Selah. [pause, and calmly realize what that means]

Shew us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
I will hear what God the Lord will speak:
for he will speak peace unto his people,
and to his saints:
but let them not turn again to folly.
Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him;
that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth are met together;
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Truth shall spring out of the earth;
and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good;
and our land shall yield her increase.
Righteousness shall go before him;
and shall set us in the way of his steps.

How beautiful is the Word of God . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
