Psalm 9:10/Not Forsaken
Good morning, readers,
Let's look at what King David has to say about not forsaken:
And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.
What beautiful words from the Psalmist, are they not?
As the holidays are upon us, we feel pressed on all sides, don't we? To buy and spend, to want our loved one right beside us as we celebrate Christs birth. It's all too much at times.
Let's look at they that know thy name. God is speaking to those who know His name. We know He is our God. We know He created heaven and earth. We know He gave us His Son to die for our sins. That's a few of the ways we know His name.
Put their trust in thee. We have to take that mental step to put our trust in the one true living God. That leads us to the next part.
Hast not forsaken them that seek thee. We seek the Lord in honest need, and He will be there for us. If it is not a need, God may not grant our request, but then again He sometimes will.
I'm here to say that God has never, ever not given me a spiritual need. Needs like gaining more patience, loving others more, being available to help when needed. To gain strength and courage from God, not of my own strength. To give me a much needed rest from my grieving. God has always helped me, because I trusted.
I challenge us to trust in Lord God even more. Let's be bold in our prayers to Him.
My prayer for us today:
Thank You, Lord God, for helping us as You do. Help us to become more bold in coming to You for all necessary things in our lives, whether large or small. In Jesus' holy name. Amen.
Until Monday . . . trust.
