During these days of unrest, fear mongering by the media, political upheaval, huge amounts of injustice, and corruption it is easy to get all worked up when you hear or read about it daily. It the midst of all this craziness I want to live my life with joy, peace, and strength making a difference where I can and attracting people to Jesus Christ. The key to living in the midst of all the chaos is trusting in God and seeking Him constantly. The method of doing that which works well for me is to memorize key portions of the Bible and meditate on it. God’s word is supernatural, it is powerful. Check out this cool passage of scripture, it makes me smile every time I recite it in my mind and put some of my least favorite politicians in it.
Psalms 37:7-15 Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing.
For evildoers will be cut off,
But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.
Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there.
But the humble will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.
The wicked plots against the righteous
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
The Lord laughs at him,
For He sees his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword and bent their bow
To cast down the afflicted and the needy,
To slay those who are upright in conduct.
Their sword will enter their own heart,
And their bows will be broken.
