“May all who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. May those who say to me, ‘Aha! Aha!’ be appalled at their own shame. But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, ‘The Lord is great!’
But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.” Psalm 40:14-17
David did not sugar coat his prayers. He dealt with life’s issues in the presence of the Lord. So, should we.
David had enemies. He prayed about it.
He had people who wanted to hurt him. He prayed about it.
He knew he was a sinner. He prayed about it.
He knew he had needs. He prayed about it.
He knew he had much to be thankful for. He prayed about it.
As we read the psalms, we see that David handled life in exactly the right place. He prayed about it.
So, should we.
Lord, I am bringing my troubles, my hurts, my failures, my life to You. I am agreeing with David when I proclaim, “The Lord is great!” Thank You.
