Quiet Time: Get Out

Get Out

You are my hiding place and my shield; I wait for Your word.
Depart from me, you evil ones, so that I may obey my God's commands.
– Psalm 119:115-116

Get out of my house!

That’s exactly what I’d tell anyone who disrespected my family with foul language or rogue behavior.

Reading this verse reminded me that, often times, not only do I not push evil away; I treat it as a welcomed guest in my home.

If I’m not careful, I find myself agreeing with the belligerent political pundit, laughing at the foul mouthed comedian, or sneering with the hateful movie hero extracting his own brand of vigilante justice.

It is difficult to wait on a word from the Lord when the majority of time is spent ingesting the world.

Get out of my life, you evil-minded people, for I intend to obey the commands of my God. – Psalm 119:115 (NLT)
