“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT TRUSTING GOD WHEN BEING PERSECUTED”

“SHARING GRACE AND TRUTH FROM THE PSALMS ABOUT TRUSTING GOD WHEN BEING PERSECUTED”

Psalm 31:14 “But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.””

Psalm 31:15 “My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me.”

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

1. We are given a great example in how King David responded when he was being persecuted.

Psalm 31:14 “But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.””

Psalm 31:15 “My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me.”

Please notice what David did.

#1. He trusted in God.

#2. He realized the LORD is the “Existing One”

#3. He spoke and said, “You are my God”

#4. He realized his times, i.e his life was in God’s hands.

#5. He asked God to deliver him from the hand of his enemies

#6. He asked God to deliver him from his persecutors.

Some additional thoughts:

1. David had trouble upon trouble through his life.

2. David was a man after God’s own heart.

3. David would become discouraged, but God helped him to have faith in God.

4. David experienced the help and deliverance that comes only from God.

A prayer:

Father in heaven, may we be like King David was. May we find ourselves trusting You, resting in You, and responding to You as You speak to us and guide us. Thank You that our relationship with You is a very personal and intimate one. You know Your sheep, and they hear Your voice. We also are grateful to be reminded that nothing will ever happen to us that does not first pass your approval. You are in control Lord and we take great comfort in this truth. We love You, in Jesus name, amen.
