“He gave them over.” Romans 1:28

It's a stark line of scripture. It can seem cold and unfeeling, hasty, even unsympathetic. But no prophetic word is of any private interpretation. We can't be like those broadcasters who only quote what works to boost ratings and sell their own propaganda. If we want to understand scripture, we gotta see the whole picture....

“Keep me.” Psalm 17:8

The Psalmist knows his enemy—and that's half our battle you guys.  You've got stuff. A heart that needs healing, a mind that needs truth, purposes from God that need direction and protection.
