From the Lord Comes Comfort

Each day I will be posting from the daily Bible Reading plan we will be doing at West Side. On weekdays we will be going through the New Testament. On the weekends we will read passages from the Old Testament books of Psalms and Proverbs. We invite you to join along.

Today’s reading (Psalms 3 & 4) reminds us of the continual peace, comfort, protection, and deliverance we have from God.

“But you are a shield around me. O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head”

“I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.”

“From the LORD comes deliverance.”

“You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.”

“I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.”

We can take comfort in the fact that the God we serve loves us and cares for us daily. He protects us, delivers us, and loves us each. What a wonderful God we have!
