12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people he chose for his inheritance.
13 From heaven the Lord looks down
and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches
all who live on earth—
15 he who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do.
20 We wait in hope for the Lord;
he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love be with us, Lord,
even as we put our hope in you.
I hear more and more concern for our nation. Evil is called okay and good is laughed at. This calls for earnest prayer from all God’s people. The Lord God is still in complete control. For the sake of His people, we survive.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” The people of God hold together the core, the foundation, that keeps the Lord as our help and shield. V16 “No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.”
The Lord is all seeing; meaning the Lord knows all. Let us who wait in hope for the Lord take heart. His call is to rejoice as we trust fully in His Holy Name. His promise to us as we put our trust in Him, His unfailing love will rest upon us.
Abundant Life People put all our hope in the Lord,
