I took my troubles to the Lord;
I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.
Rescue me, O Lord, from liars
and from all deceitful people.
O deceptive tongue, what will God do to you?
How will he increase your punishment?
You will be pierced with sharp arrows
and burned with glowing coals.
How I suffer in far-off Meshech.
It pains me to live in distant Kedar.
I am tired of living
among people who hate peace.
I search for peace;
but when I speak of peace, they want war!
O Lord, I find it so hard to distinguish between truth and lies (or just fact and fiction – especially on social media). Please grant me discernment when to comes to stories that appear in my inbox, or I hear on the grapevine. AMEN
