Observation: What was going on in the Bible at this time?
Today we read through more Psalms of David that speak of deliverance in our times of trouble, how God cares for His most valuable creation – people, how God never ignores our cries for help, how God is aware of every injustice, how foolish it is to deny God, the benefits and joys of living in companionship with God, the greatness of God, and openly thanking God after our victories in our battles in life. Follow along in Psalm 6, Psalm 8-10, Psalm 14, Psalm 16, Psalm 19, and Psalm 21!
Application: How can we apply this to our lives?
Our God is a very loving God, and in His kindness, He forgives us instead of giving us what we truly deserve. God knows each and every one of us and wants the very best for His children. We do not have to be weighed down by the guilt of our sins, for our God forgives us when we confess our sins to Him. Our God is very merciful. Never question your worth as a person, for God considers us very valuable to Him. We do not have to feel worthless. God’s opinion is the only one that matters in life. God will never forsake those who seek and follow Him. God never ignores our cries for help. He is also aware of every injustice. According to the Bible, to speak in direct defiance of God is very foolish. Even when we feel that we are losing the battles in life, we can be completely sure that our ultimate victory is in our Heavenly Father. We must always seek God’s will first in our lives. By communicating consistently with God, it allows Him to help us and give us wisdom. Be sure to thank God for all that He has given you on a daily basis. We must praise Him after our victories in the battles of life, for it is He who helps us through each and every one of them.
Prayer: What can we pray for in regards to these passages?
Heavenly Father, Thank You for the examples and stories that You have placed in Your Word for us to learn from. Thank You for the Book of Psalms, and the lessons that come from each beautiful song. Please help us to put our relationship with You above any and all earthly riches, for we know that You are the only one who can completely satisfy us. Please help us never to question our worth, for we find our worth in You, Father. Help us to remain faithful to You through all of our trials and struggles in this life, and please keep our hearts clean. Help us to always obey You, trust You, and follow the path that You have paved for our lives. Help us to draw near to You in our times of trouble and on a daily basis. Help us to commit our ways to You and to trust You for the outcome. Help us to flee from revenge, always treating others – even our enemies – in God-honoring ways. We give our enemies up to You, and we ask for Your protection. Help us never to doubt or resent You when an answer to prayer is not on our timing. Please help us to fulfill the responsibilities that You have for us. We know that You know what is best for us, and we trust You. Please forgive us for the many sins that we commit, and help us to forgive others. Please guide and protect us, our friends, families, pets, and our brothers and sisters around the world who are suffering. We love You and thank You for everything. – in Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
