Sprinting to Daylight

From Psalm 97:10-11:  “You who love the Lord, hate evil; He guards the lives of His faithful; He rescues them from the hand of the wicked.  Light dawns for the righteous and joy for the upright in heart.”

Surrounding darkness

Evil’s world abounds

Life’s hesitation

Sinful, barking sounds

 

Playing with evil

Like kitchen’s hot stove

Waiting to burn us

Consuming faith’s grove

 

Hearing Father’s Word

Explicit warning

Hate evil, love God

Righteous good morning

 

Evil’s deception

Ignore its calling

Turning from darkness

Sinful flesh falling

 

Life’s new page opens

His goodness unfolds

Sprinting to daylight

Safe in God’s stronghold

From the words of  American pastor and Christian teacher, Charles Stanley:  “When we learn to hate evil, we learn to love what God loves.”
