Day 31: Be blessed!
When facing the stones and rocks being hurled at you, Acts 7:59
When its your last breath as you are being crucified, Luke 23:46
When you pray “Take this cup from me” or “Free me from this trap” v4.
When you have become an object of scorn and disgrace because of your weakness, v9-12.
When the song is not a lullaby but about dangerous enemies v15.
When feeling all alone, my God, my God, why have you forsaken me?v22; Mark 15:34.
There is one thing to say to the One who preserves the faithful, v23:-
INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT, v5
Even in the clutches of the evil one where he is grasping at you, he is not holding you. You are not in the hands of the enemy. Whatever the enemy, it is not in control of you.
No, God is in control. He has you. You are in His hands.
In the darkest hour of Jesus life maybe he spoke the whole of Psalm 31. We do know he quoted from it at least.
From your place of the cross today speak it out.
From the place of disappointment, anxiety and hurt.
From the pain and weakness, say it out loud!
INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT
