“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT GOD’S RESPONSE TO THE AFFLICTED SOUL”

“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT GOD’S RESPONSE TO THE AFFLICTED SOUL”

Psalm 22:24 “For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from Him; But when He cried to Him, He heard.”

Taken from today’s reading in “The One Year Bible” by Zondervan.

1. We see three wonderful truths about God.

Psalm 22:24 “For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from Him; But when He cried to Him, He heard.”

#1. God does not despise nor abhor the affliction of the afflicted.
The simple truth here, is that God does not “ignore” the suffering of the needy.

#2. Nor has He hidden His face from the afflicted.
Additionally, God does not turn and walk away from the afflicted.

#3. When the afflicted cry out to God He hears them.
What the Lord does do, is to listen to their cries for help.

Some additional thoughts:

1. God loves the world, period, there is no question about that. He proved it by sending Jesus who died for us while we sinners. He has proved His love for each and every person.

2. In particular, He would never not care for, nor never ignore the sufferings that people go through.

3. God will not turn away from the person who is suffering and crying out to Him.

4. When a suffering person calls out to God, they can be positively sure, He is listening to them.

A prayer:

Our Father who art in heaven, we hallow Your name this very day. We honor You, we look to You and we thank You Father for Your grace, Your mercy, Your peace, and also for the living hope we have in Jesus Christ.
Thank You for caring for the hurting, and would You please help us to have the mind of Christ, when it comes to our being able to care for, love and offer real help to those who are suffering. We ask this in Jesus name, amen.
