Have you ever had someone twist the words you spoke? Have you ever been misquoted so that suddenly it sounds as if you were saying something entirely different from what you actually meant?
We see it often in our world. Political leaders, famous people, sometimes pulling a sentence or two out of context can change the whole meaning of someone’s message.
It’s infuriating when it happens to us, but we are in good company, when it does. Listen to the words of King David: “All day long they twist my words; all their schemes are for my ruin. They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, hoping to take my life. Because of their wickedness do not let them escape; in your anger, God, bring the nations down.”
But David knew where to go with his frustration and fears. He went to the Lord. He took all of it, wrapped it up, and laid it at God’s throne.
And then David could cry out: “Record my misery; list my fears on your scroll—are they not in your record? Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.” Psalm 56:8-9
We can know that same kind of rest because we can have the same assurance. God is for us. There is no one better.
Father thank You that no matter the circumstances You are on my side.
