March 18 (Lent, Day 17): Crooked Paths
Just following “what feels good in the moment” will not lead us to life. That’s what Psalm 125 describes as a “crooked way”: a path that changes direction so often that you expend a lot of energy but don’t get very far.
March 17 (Lent, Day 16): As the Mountains Surround Jerusalem
Whatever enemy we may be facing, we have the advantage because the Lord is protecting us. And it is a fearful thing to fight against the Lord.
March 16 (Lent, Day 15): Like Mount Zion
When we trust in the Lord we become like Mount Zion: filled with God’s presence and unshaken by the storms of life.
