What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
You have not started any reading plans.
1 I am the one who has seen the afflictions
that come from the rod of the Lord’s anger.
shutting out all light.
again and again, all day long.
He has broken my bones.
with anguish and distress.
like those long dead.
He has bound me in heavy chains.
he has shut out my prayers.
he has made my road crooked.
waiting to attack me.
leaving me helpless and devastated.
and made me the target for his arrows.
deep into my heart.
All day long they sing their mocking songs.
and given me a bitter cup of sorrow to drink.
He has rolled me in the dust.
and I have forgotten what prosperity is.
Everything I had hoped for from the Lord is lost!”
is bitter beyond words.*
as I grieve over my loss.
when I remember this:
22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends!*
His mercies never cease.
his mercies begin afresh each morning.
therefore, I will hope in him!”
to those who search for him.
for salvation from the Lord.
to the yoke of his discipline:
beneath the Lord’s demands.
for there may be hope at last.
and accept the insults of their enemies.
by the Lord forever.
because of the greatness of his unfailing love.
or causing them sorrow.
all the prisoners of the land,
in defiance of the Most High,
doesn’t the Lord see all these things?
without the Lord’s permission?
send both calamity and good?
when we are punished for our sins?
Let us turn back to the Lord.
to God in heaven and say,
and you have not forgiven us.
and slaughtered us without mercy.
so our prayers cannot reach you.
among the nations.
have spoken out against us.
for we are trapped, devastated, and ruined.”
because of the destruction of my people!
they will not stop
from heaven and sees.
over the fate of all the women of Jerusalem.
hunted me down like a bird.
and dropped stones on me.
and I cried out, “This is the end!”
from deep within the pit.
Hear my cry for help!”
you told me, “Do not fear.”
you have redeemed my life.
Be my judge, and prove me right.
my enemies have laid against me.
You know all about the plans they have made.
as they plot against me all day long.
I am the object of their mocking songs.
for all the evil they have done.
and then let your curse fall on them!
destroying them beneath the Lord’s heavens.
