Psalm Sunday: Psalm 5.11

"But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name
Be joyful in You."

Just a quick one! Throughout the Old Testament, satan is called our accuser [Job 1.6, Job 2.1]. He reminds us constantly when we fall short of God's standard. When Jesus died for our sins, Hebrews tell us that He became our High Priest, (standing in the gap between ourselves and God, pleading mercy and grace on our behalf). We can be joyful in hope for the future because God defends us. That's why the bible says this:

"[There is] therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit."
- Romans 8.1
God bless, have a great week.
