See that ye be not troubled

Daily Light Devotions - May 7 - Morning

... See that ye be not troubled.

And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. 1

To the choirmaster. Of the Sons of Korah. According to Alamoth. A Song. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah 2

Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by. For behold, the LORD is coming out from his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity, and the earth will disclose the blood shed on it, and will no more cover its slain. 3

To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave. Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for in you my soul takes refuge; in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, till the storms of destruction pass by. 4

For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 5

He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the LORD. 6

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." 7
