Glad songs of salvation are in the tents of the righteous: "The right hand of the LORD does valiantly, the right hand of the LORD exalts, the right hand of the LORD does valiantly!" I shall not die, but I shall live, and recount the deeds of the LORD. The LORD has disciplined me severely, but He has not given me over to death.
Oh, Lord, how appropriate for this morning. Here I am crying out to You for dear friends, their anger and the impacts; and You assure me that You are doing valiantly. That not only I but they will live to recount Your deeds of love and mercy. That You will discipline severely but we will all live. Give all of us strength and wisdom to pass through the fire without wavering.
Praise You, my Lord and my Master.
