Who do we call on in times of trouble? Where do we take our requests to when we need help and guidance?
Friends and family? Work colleagues maybe? Perhaps nowadays people even turn to Facebook by using that awful status ‘It’s happened again’ thereby inviting comments from all and sundry on some situation that has occurred.
Nothing inherently wrong with all that I suppose. Yet as Believers we have a helper who desires to be engaged in our world. When things are before us that we don’t know how to navigate, we have One who can lead us, if only we would give voice to our request and ask for help.
Stubbornness or pride may stop us at times but we must do all we can to not let them.
In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation. [Psalm 5:3]
Isn’t that awalk with God that demonstrates faith. A walk that relies on God moving in our lives. A walk that says God can deal with stuff.
It’s definitely a walk that shows the attitude of King David in this Psalm that I want to adopt – to come into Gods House, to worship toward Gods throne, and to be led according to Gods righteousness.
For that kind of relationship I am thankful and will rejoice. In such a relationship I am favoured and blessed. I can’t think of any better place to be.
