But this is because I only see one side of reality.
"You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over." Psalm 23:5
Those who hurt me, situations that upset me, my anger, my sadness - all these are my enemies. But in the presence of my enemies God prepares a table for me to sit down and enjoy a feast with Him. In the presence of my enemies and the Lord, who will I choose to commune with? I need to forgive those who sin against me, deny my own desire to serve the gods of gloom and anger, and leap into the arms of the Lord who loves me and has prepared delights for me to enjoy both now and forever. Amen!
Romans 8:1, 34
"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus...Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died - more than that, who was raised to life - is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us."
