There are a number of Psalms
called the Psalms of Ascent (120-134)
They may have been sung as people ascended to Jerusalem for the feasts
or as the priest ascended into the temple.
One of their themes is;
and IN God
is goodness to His people
This morning I was reading Ps 123
Where God is as a gracious and merciful master
that a servant looks to for blessing and safety
from those who are proud and arrogant.
I am continually reminded
that God IS my source
and my saviour
for each moment
when others come against me
when I strive against temptation inside
God is there
He is Good
and He is
Oh Thank You Lord Jesus
for presence in my life today.
Thank You for Choosing to stay close
Thank You for being what I need
when assailed from
Thank You Lord
for being over me
as a Master
over a servant.
