From today’s reading in the One Year Chronological Bible dated 7/6:

“For the Lord knows the way of the righteous but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” The Psalmist describes the wicked:

1) His pride persecutes the poor

2) He boasts of his heart’s desires

3) He blesses the greedy and renounces the poor

4) He is too proud to seek God

5) His mouth is full of cursing, deceit and oppression

6) He secretly murders the innocent

7) He preys on the helpless and the poor

Then the wicked say about the Lord, “He will never see.” 🤨 Well, they are wrong about that. “For His eyes are on the ways of man, and He sees his every step.” (Job 34:21). “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3)

The Lord sees all and not only does He see all, He will also judge all. Later in the Story, Luke will say, “For he has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed, and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead.” (Acts 17:31) That man is Jesus Christ, our Savior! Paul will explain further: “Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God.” (1 Corinthians 4:5) “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” (2 Corinthians 5:10)

However, there is great news for those who put their trust and faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior. “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 8:1) 🙌

We end the reading with a Word of hope from the Lord for those who love Him. “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.” Amen!! 💜

Tomorrow…more Psalms. Keep reading.

(Psalms 1-2, Psalm 10, Psalm 33, Psalm 71, Psalm 91)
