Thoughts and Commentary on Today's Reading   

In Psalm 109:26-29, we find a powerful perspective on rejection, hate, and abuse. Just as the Scripture states, Yahweh delivers us from our oppressors. But the good news is that they may curse, but when Yahweh blesses, you're blessed. Consider the powerful testimony of Elder Ron Archer, who was a hated "trick baby". 

What a wonderful God we serve who raises us up from such things and pronounces upon us a blessing which is uncurseable! Your value and blessing comes from Him! And that's all that matters.
Psalm 109:26-29 - "Help me, O Yahweh my God: O save me according to Thy Mercy: That they may know that this is Thy Hand; that Thou, Yahweh, hast done it. Let them curse, but bless Thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let Thy servant rejoice. Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle."
Isn't it a blessing to remember that it what God says and thinks of you that matters? And what does He say about you?
Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith Yahweh, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
