Psalm116-5The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.  The Lord protects the unwary; when I was brought low, he saved me.  Psalm 116:5-6Gracious, righteous, full of compassion.   That description fit anyone you know?  I can’t think of a soul that I have ever known that fits this description, all the time.  Being human causes us to stumble off the three pedestals that is our God.What is the bottom line?  That we stand apart?  Or that we understand that it is not in our power to achieve these three attributes?  Only through the Grace of God and his faithfulness, does he strengthen us and protect us from the evil one.  The bottom line is becoming like a child and trusting with confidence that God loves us, He will protect us, and guide us.Praying always that we are humbled and mold-able and trusting in Him who is able to keep us from falling.  We are His and He is ours and there is a forever together for us and all who love love Him.But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.  We have confidence in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we command  May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.  2 Thessalonians 3:3-5
