Today's Advent devotional is a preview and invitation to our upcoming concert on Friday at 7PM and Sunday at 4PM. Please share!
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 14TH | PSALM 3:1-6 The psalmist laments those who rise against him, the “ten thousands of people” surrounding him. Yet the psalmist doesn’t succumb to pressure. He sleeps well because God serves as his shield. God answers his cries. God sustains the psalmist so he can get the rest he needs, even under stress. Those who rise against us may not be enemies from without but enemies within. Doubts and insecurities circle our hearts and minds. Fear and anxiety wound our potential, hampering us from becoming who God created us to be. This Advent, meditate on the God who gives us rest, who understands our fully human and fallible nature, the God who risked being born into a world strewn with enemies without and within. Holy God, despite our stress, help us to rest as the psalmist rests this Advent. Calm our anxiety. Steady and slow our breathing. Comfort us with your Advent promise to be God-with-us. Amen.
