I cry out to the Lord with my voice; With my voice to the Lord I make my supplication. I pour out my complaint before Him; I declare before Him my trouble. Psalm 142 NKJV
David was a mighty warrior for the Lord. He led Israel’s armies into battle against God’s enemies. He was the Lord’s servant. His service flowed from his commitment to trust God with his life!
David came before God with great boldness and humility. He was bold enough to call on the Lord regardless of his mistakes and failures. He was humble enough to bow his heart before God and ask for deliverance from trials and troubles.
Are you bold enough to come before God regardless of your sinful actions, failures and mistakes? Are you humble enough to bow your heart before the Lord and ask for deliverance from trials and troubles?
You do not have to be a mighty warrior to serve God. He does not expect you to lead armies into battle against His enemies. You can serve God by bowing your heart in supplication to Jesus. You can serve the Lord by coming before His throne in prayer!
Look on my right hand and see, For there is no one who acknowledges me; Refuge has failed me; No one cares for my soul. Vs 4
God loved David enough to call him; “A man after my own heart.” The Lord honored David by declaring kings would come from his body. A son of David would not fail to sit upon the throne of Israel. God kept His promise by placing David in the lineage of Jesus.
David feels alone and abandoned. This is after he killed Goliath. This is after the Lord told David he would be the next king of Israel.
Sometimes I feel alone and abandoned even though I have I wife who loves and adores me. I find myself feeling alone and abandoned even though the Lord calls me His servant. I feel alone and abandoned even though Jesus loves me!
Jesus will never leave you alone. He will be with you until the end of time. He will never abandon you. Jesus will be with you through seasons of trials and troubles. Jesus will be with you through heartbreaking loss and the difficult lessons we must all learn.
“Bring my soul out of prison, That I may praise Your name; The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me.” Vs 7
Call out to Jesus when you feel alone and abandoned. He will lift your soul up out of the darkness into the light of His love so you can praise His name. His righteousness will surround you. Jesus always deals bountifully with people who love Him!
Show Jesus how much you love Him right now!
