One For Him and One for Me
An old Bible of mine was sitting there and I decided to just open it up and gain whatever wisdom it would yield for my daily edification. Well, it opened right up to a section that had been torn out ) :
On the one side I was in was Psalms and what I read I wish I could ask our President to read and if he really is a Christian to base what he thinks is best for our country upon and obey himself. On the other side was Isaiah (it was a rather large swath of pages torn asunder) and I saw a passage for me, my friends, and actually for everybody in this world.
First: Psalm 119 Samech
|SAMECH. I hate [vain] thoughts: but thy law do I love.|
|119:114||Thou [art] my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.|
|119:115||Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.|
|119:116||Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.|
|119:117||Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.|
|119:118||Thou hast trodden down all them that err from thy statutes: for their deceit [is] falsehood.|
|119:119||Thou puttest away all the wicked of the earth [like] dross: therefore I love thy testimonies.|
|119:120||My flesh trembleth for fear of thee; and I am afraid of thy judgments.|
And then for me and my friends and everyone else in the world:
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew [their] strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; [and] they shall walk, and not faint.
