The Lord supplies my daily bible reading and tonight, being Easter, when I opened and read Psalm 114, as it is numbered in my bible, ( some versions numbered differently) the connection was very obvious; strong & powerful. The strength of the connection reminded me of Jesus presence: loving and strong. In fact, I felt He was there.

Psalm 114 (Hebrew psalm 116a) Verses 1-9
Rescue me from Death
I love the Lord for he has heard the cry of my appeal; for he turned his ear to me in the day when I called him.
They surrounded me, the snares of the death, with the anguish of the tomb. They caught me, sorrow and distress. I called on the Lord’s name. Oh Lord my God deliver me!
How gracious is the Lord and just! Our God has compassion! The Lord protects the simple hearts. I was helpless so he saved me.
Turn back, my soul, to your rest for the Lord has been good; he has kept my soul from death (my eyes from tears) and my feet from stumbling.
I will walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the Living.
Thank you, Lord. I love you, Lord.
