Gems of Encouragement: Saturday, September 13, 2014
The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayer of the righteous.
The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth.
But let all who take refuge in You be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread Your protection over them that those who love Your name may rejoice in You. For surely, O Lord, You bless the righteous; You surround them with Your favor as with a shield.
