All Times

Psalm 70:1-5

I don't like asking for help and feeling "poor and needy" (verse 5). I much prefer being independent and feeling confident and self sufficient. Can you relate? I've found, however, that I benefit from and need those hard and challenging experiences because that's when some of my most intimate times with the Lord occur. With that said, however, I really want and need good fellowship with the Lord in all times.

So how can we work on consistently having intimate and meaningful times with the Lord in all seasons? Tami W.

I can relate! I also believe that being consistant in my relationship with Him and relying on the Lord always prepares me for those hard and challenging times. When they come, I am better prepared, (if you can ever be prepared), and feel confident to rely on the Lord and His soveriegnty. I can better accept that He is in control and He has "prepared" the way for me. Years ago I had dear Jewish friends who survived the Holocost, then came to the USA and lost their only son in a tragic accident. They told me the best and most surprising advice, "Never question God why, it will only tear you up." I can be confident that He has a plan for my life, Jeremiah 29:11.

"The answer is straight and true. Love the Lord with all your heart and soul and mind." Put God first. Talk to Him about everything. Read His word, the Bible everyday.

Another divine purpose for this kind of psalm is that we pray for those who are persecuted for Christ's sake. Just read the psalm while thinking of those in Darfur - or China - or all the Moslem lands!

It's definitely something we don't like to admit to others, but we need to admit to God that we're utterly helpless, weak, and empty. If we come to Him with this attitude, He, in His goodness and grace, fills & empowers us for more service!

I can soooo relate, Tammi!!!! I am slowly learning that my sufficiency is in Christ....not my own strength.....when I don't lean on my own understanding and strength, but rely on His, acknowledging Him every step of my way....my direction is sure and with purpose!!!! Proverbs 3:5-6 has helped me.....as well as knowing that we are to carry one another's burdens as in Galatians 6:2...reaching out to others in their need and in mine has drawn me ever closer to the Lord!!!!

What this actually meant to me is that we are laying all at the cross of Jesus when we tell GOD we are poor

God gives us great Spiritual guides and friends like you along with HIS Word. And I miss it when I'm away from my Friends....I need Him because I am weak and I need prayers from you to keep me going. Then I can help others when my thoughts are on HIM. I thank my God for every remembrance of you.
