WHEN EVERYONE ELSE ABANDONED ME GOD TOOK ME IN
Psalm 27 (MSG) A David Psalm
1 Light, space, zest— that’s God!
So, with him on my side I’m fearless,
afraid of no one and nothing.
2 When vandal hordes ride down
ready to eat me alive,
Those bullies and toughs
fall flat on their faces.
3 When besieged,
I’m calm as a baby.
When all hell breaks loose,
I’m collected and cool.
4 I’m asking God for one thing,
only one thing:
To live with him in his house
my whole life long.
I’ll contemplate his beauty;
I’ll study at his feet.
5 That’s the only quiet, secure place
in a noisy world,
The perfect getaway,
far from the buzz of traffic.
6 God holds me head and shoulders
above all who try to pull me down.
I’m headed for his place to offer anthems
that will raise the roof!
Already I’m singing God-songs;
I’m making music to God.
7-9 Listen, God, I’m calling at the top of my lungs:
“Be good to me! Answer me!”
When my heart whispered, “Seek God,”
my whole being replied,
“I’m seeking him!”
Don’t hide from me now!
9-10 You’ve always been right there for me;
don’t turn your back on me now.
Don’t throw me out, don’t abandon me;
you’ve always kept the door open.
My father and mother walked out and left me,
but God took me in.
11-12 Point me down your highway, God;
direct me along a well-lighted street;
show my enemies whose side you’re on.
Don’t throw me to the dogs,
those liars who are out to get me,
filling the air with their threats.
13-14 I’m sure now I’ll see God’s goodness
in the exuberant earth.
Stay with God!
Take heart. Don’t quit.
I’ll say it again:
Stay with God.
WHEN EVERYONE ELSE ABANDONED ME GOD TOOK ME IN.
If God would do this for me, can’t you just image that He will do these same for you and all who would just pause for a moment and call on the name of Jesus. If you have never accepted Him in your life and experienced the joy of knowing Him as a friend, pause for a moment and just say, “Jesus, I am a sinner, come into my heart and forgive me of my sins. I accept you as my Lord and savior.” If you have prayed this simple prayer, you are saved, and now you can enjoy eternal life. Find you a local bible teaching church and begin to fellowship with other believers.
Now take your spiritual walk with Jesus and allow Him to bless you abundantly as you study His Holy Word and apply it to your life daily. He is waiting for you to receive it, accept it and allow it to manifest the beauty of your thoughts in your life this day.
