I read Psalm 116  this morning and seen the word bedeviled and thought what is that?

NOW LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE VERSE:

Psalm 116:9-11

I’m striding in the presence of God,
alive in the land of the living!
I STAYED FAITHFUL, though BEDEVILED ,
and despite a ton of bad luck,
Despite giving up on the human race,
saying, “They’re all liars and cheats.”

As I am looking at this word even more closely I see two words in the one word.  Do you see it?

Be Devil

Evil

Something to think about for sure.  As long as we are human and around humans we will be dealing with this type of nature.  Thank God we can tap into our Spirit within us and display Godly emotions.  Which are the fruits of the Spirit.  With that power within we can conqueror any situation with God’s help.  Never alone, always with, to, and through Him that saves us!  Amen!

To stride is to walk purposefully.

Our purpose is to walk in the Truth of what God says.  Amen!
