“In God, whose word I praise, in God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can mere man do to me? All day long they distort my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.” (Psalm 56:4-5)
Word twisting is nothing new. It has been done from the beginning. Pay attention to what the Lord has said, straight up, and praise Him as you have been created to praise. Do not mind the ones who distort the truth, but live in the truth of the Word which has been revealed and know that God is good and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. Think on God’s goodness.
Lord, all around me are those who seek my acceptance of them and their ways. Lead me, O Lord, in the way I should go that I would hold fast to Your Word of truth knowing that in You alone is there hope and a future. Let my lips praise You all the day long and I will forever look only to You as the source of life. Shield my ears from the false ways of the wicked ones of this world that I may hold fast to Your Word.
Lord Jesus, You have come that I may have life and have it abundantly. My mind is affected by the twisted words of this world. Clear my mind to hear the straight truth of Your Word which is from everlasting. Help me keep things simple and listen to what You have to say. You are the author and finisher of my faith. Lead me in the way I should go and I will follow You. Amen.
