Word: And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You. Psalm 9:10.
Thought: We know of many names of the Lord, but do we go to the Lord when we have problems are we rush to get the world to help us. David has tasted the goodness of the Lord and really understood all the different names of the Lord and hence put His trust only on God when troubles surrounded him from all corners. He also understands that God could take care of any situation, no matter how close or far at the moment we call Him as long as we have Him close and put our trust in Him – He will not forsake us. It does not means the distance will be shorter, but he will be the light to guide us through, As the Lord said to Moses “I am who I am” – He is the “I AM X” in each of our like and depending on our situation, He will be the X we need. Let us remember though that we are not calling a servant, but our master for help and hence not command the Lord on what needs to be done since He is aware of things seen and unseen and will provide the best solution in His sovereignty on what is needed and not accordingly to the crude narrow understanding we have on the situation, Let us call upon the Lord in the day of trouble and see Him deliver us and help us magnify His name.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to understand you more, that I will be able to trust in you in every situation of my life as nothing is bog for you and you will deliver us in any time of distress and trouble. Amen.
