Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 5 - Morning

"When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise —
in God I trust and am not afraid.

What can mere mortals do to me?

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.

Record my misery;
list my tears 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.

In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise —
in God I trust and am not afraid.

What can man do to me?"

- Psalms 56:3-11

David's Trust in God    

Psalm 56 opens with David being “hotly pursued” or “hounded” by Philistines who have taken David captive in Gath. A large group of Philistine warriors have pursued David with their swords while they accuse and slander him.

David expresses his need for underserved divine assistance as he begins his request: “Grant me grace, O God” in 56:1. After voicing his need in 56:1-2, David proclaims his confidence in God in
56:3-4 before returning to expressing his need in 56:5-6. In verses 56:7-11 David is hopeful of his deliverance.

David admits to being afraid of his pursuers, but knows he can have confidence in divine help. David knows God’s will and understands what God does because God’s word has been made available to David. Because of this David “will praise the word,” put his trust in God and stop fearing what mere “flesh can do.”

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Let our praise be in God and not from ourselves, for God hates those that commend themselves. Let testimony to our good deeds be borne by others, as it was in the case of our righteous forefathers. Boldness, arrogance, and audacity belong to those that are accursed of God, but moderation, humility, and meekness to those that are blessed by Him."
- Clement of Rome, 96 AD
Something to Ponder??

From David Kinnaman's book
"You Lost Me"

Myth 4: This generation of young Christians is increasingly "biblically illiterate."

Reality: The study examined beliefs across the firm's 28-year history, looking for generational gaps in spiritual beliefs and knowledge. When comparing the faith of young practicing faith Christians (ages 18 to 29) to those of older practicing Christians (ages 30-plus), surprisingly few differences emerged between what the two groups believe. This means that within the Christian community, the theological differences between generations are not as pronounced as might be expected. Young Christians lack biblical knowledge on some matters, but not significantly more so than older Christians.

Instead, the research showed substantial differences among those outside of Christianity. That is, older non-Christians were more familiar than younger non-Christians with Bible stories and Christian theology, even if they did not personally embrace those beliefs.

The Barna president described this as "unexpected, because one often hears how theologically illiterate young Christians are these days. Instead, when it comes to questions of biblical literacy, the broader culture seems to be losing its collective understanding of Christian teachings. In other words, Christianity is no longer 'autopilot' for the nation's youngest citizens.

Ezekiel's vision and activities in the Temple in
Ezekiel 8.

This is a photo looking south down the New Testament time street that ran along the Western Wall of the Temple Mount down to the Pool of Soloam. Part of the street's curb can be seen on the right side where Toni is sitting and Western Wall can be seen on the left side. The pile of broken stone and rubble is the Roman destruction that took place on the Temple Mount above in 70 AD. These pieces were pushed over the edge and the walls dismantled by the Romans. This road was crushed in many places at that time.
