The Triumphal Entry

I am weak, falling apart, but You are my deliverer. I am crushed, beaten, but You are the shelter from the storms. I am rebellious, disobedient, but You are the faithful and just God. I am fearful, panicky, but You are the Lord of peace. I am depressed, weary, but You are the God who gives encouragement. I am powerless, defenseless, but You are Lord over all. I am bitter, seeking revenge, but You are the God of love. I am filled with darkness, but You are the light of the world. I am guilty, sin-covered, but You are the compassionate and forgiving God. I am saved; You are my Savior. • Emily Gwaltney • Today’s poem includes several truths about who God says He is, as revealed in His Word, the Bible: God is the deliverer (Psalm 18:2) God is the shelter from the storms (Isaiah 25:4-5) God is faithful and just (Deuteronomy 32:4; 2 Timothy 2:8-13) God is the Lord of peace (Romans 15:33; 16:20; 2 Thessalonians 3:16) God gives encouragement to His people (Romans 15:4-6) God is Lord over all (Acts 10:36; Romans 10:12) God is the God of love (2 Corinthians 13:11; 1 John 4:16) God is the light of the world (John 8:12) God is compassionate and forgiving (Nehemiah 9:17-19) Jesus—who is God—is the Savior from sin and death (Psalm 140:7; Romans 10:9; Titus 2:13) • Pick one of these truths about God and look up the Scripture references mentioned for it. How does this truth affect the way we live as Christians? The Lord lives—blessed be my rock! God, the rock of my salvation, is exalted. 2 Samuel 22:47 (CSB)
