Daily Oracle - June 19, 2013 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?...It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. - Psalm 118:6, 8 I have brought a lot of pain to my life and I have had pain inflicted on me. I can say the majority of it has been self-inflicted, with really no one to blame but myself. The best part about it, and I do mean the best part, is whether self-inflicted or inflicted by others, God has always been by my side. I know that the only pain I can experience is the pain God allows and I know He will not put more on me than I can bear. How do I know these things? His Word tells me so. Like most of us, I can get wrapped around what someone may say or do to me, my character or my reputation, but in the end, so what? It does not matter what they call me, it's what I answer to that matters. There is not a man or a woman, a Christian denomination or any other created thing that has (1) a heaven or (2) a hell to send me to. Finally let me say this. David says better to trust God than put confidence in man; man will fail you each and every time. God, on the other hand, cannot, will not, does not ever fail you or me. We may not always get things our way, but should we really? Would that not make us what we are to raise our children not to be – whiny, crying, spoiled brats? We are children of the King, not His rotten off-spring. So no matter what comes your way, God first of all allowed it and secondly will bring you through it. And when you are threatened? Just asked yourself the same question David asked: what can man do to me?
