Why do I fear in times of trouble? The sin of those who cheat me surrounds me. Psalm 49:5
I am afraid that they won't change soon enough.
I am afraid that they will get off without any verdict.
They'll be passed over while I'm diligently working.
My situation shouts to the cheaters whose sins bump up against mine this day.
Maybe, they have wealth and can ease their way through.
Blessed are those whose strength is in God, not in their wealth or position or ease.
Where is my own heart this day? A highway to God?
The psalmist's heart was set on God, set on a pilgrimage.
"The very map to Jerusalem was written on that heart.
His Love for God and for His house helped him make right decisions in life so that he did not go astray.
...The Valley of Baca is a name for any difficult and painful place in life,
where everything seems hopeless and you feel helpless, like the pit of despair." W. Wiersbe
The people who love God expect to pass through this valley and not remain there.
"They dig a well."
"They pray down the rain." W.W.
"They go from strength to strength." Trusting God no matter what. Psalm 84
