One Way to Respond to Unjust Treatment

Have you been treated unjustly? Pray. God sees, knows, and cares. He will respond.

This story gives God’s perspective: If you take your neighbor’s cloak as a pledge, return it to him by sunset, because his cloak is the only covering he has for his body. What else will he sleep in? When he cries out to me, I will hear, for I am compassionate (Exodus 22:26-27 bold mine).”

Let us Thank the Lord

Some wandered, hungry and thirsty. Others were in prison. Some suffered affliction, near death. Others were in a storm, filled with fear (read their stories in Psalm 107).

All of them cried to the Lord in their trouble. All of them were delivered from their distress. How should they respond? Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of men (Psalm 107:8,15,21,31).

Whatever trouble you face, cry out to the Lord. And when he delivers you, say thank you. Happy Thanksgiving.

Don’t Bear the Burden of Sin

This is what the Lord says — “You refuse to ask for my help. . . . Instead, you have burdened me with your sins . . . I alone will blot out your sins for my own sake. Let us review the situation together and you can present your case ( from Isaiah 43: 1-26 NLT).”

You don’t need to bear the burden of your sin. Jesus died and rose to set you free.

Do you Believe?

They heard Jesus and were amazed by His wisdom and power. But they did not believe (from Mark 6:2-6).

Being amazed is never enough. Do you believe Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God? By believing in him you will have life by the power of his name (John 20:31).
