Twisted Tree

Psalm 11:2,3 “For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart. When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” Psalm 37:9 “Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord and delight in His salvation.”

The twists and turns of evil motives and plots, with ever deepening roots, appear indefatigable and unmovable. But, God. God is there. He listens to our prayers. He knows our weaknesses. For certain, there exists God’s unshakeable love and holy intervention that we can count on. Both now in the present and with a future final consummation.

If I focus on the twisted thoughts and actions of my own heart and of those around me, I feel as though my own heart gets more twisted into a concrete knot of hopelessness. If I focus on God and His majestic power, His Spirit surely unravels the knots, smooths the perversions, and leads me gently into the freedom of His Truth.

My soul will delight in His salvation! Exodus 15:13 “In Your unfailing love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling.”
