Psalm 12

Read this Psalm this morning, and couldn't help but think of how it sounds like the times we live in. "Even so, Lord Jesus, come".

Help, Lord, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished from the human race. Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts. May the Lord silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue- those who say, "by our tongues we will prevail; our own lips will defend us-who is lord over us?"
"Becuase the poor are plundered and the needy groan, I will now arise," says the Lord. "I will protect them from those who malign them." And the words of theLord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven time. You, Lord, will keep the needy safe and will protect us forever from the wicked, who freely strut about while depravity is honored by the human race.

Amen. "Even so, Lord Jesus, come"

Thanks for the Psalm. My morning is/was a little off and I haven't read my Bible yet so this was refreshing.

This verse has been on my heart the last week too as I watch and wait for His return anyday now... Even so, Come Lord Jesus.

Scott DeGroff said this wkend, it is very rare to find selfless and faithful servants of the Lord IN the local assemblies...

Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our devotion light their way
May the footprints that we leave
Lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful.
