Today's reading: Psalm 71:1-24

Psalm 71 is yet another song of affliction in which David is seeking God's protection and deliverance. It appears that David wrote this psalm later in life since we see references to old age, gray hairs and still proclaiming God's goodness from his youth (vs. 17-18). What I like about this psalm is that while it shows us that David has encountered difficulty throughout his entire life (and lets us know that will we too), it also reveals how God has been faithful to David throughout his entire life (and that He will be faithful to us too). This gives David confidence that God will act again, and prompts him to proclaim God's goodness, telling those around him about God's complete protection and provision in the past, and praising Him in the present.

Is it your practice to look back and recall God's faithfulness when you encounter difficulty? How does God's goodness to you in the past impact you in the present? How can you use your situation right now to proclaim God's goodness and be a witness to others? Tami

God's goodness in the past and His unchanging nature gives me confidence that, no matter what the future brings, He'll still be faithful.

I just wanted to say that my life has been a ongoing rollercoaster. For the last 5 months I havent had a home and isexpecting my newborn any day. My boyfriend and I did everything to get in a nice home but bad luck just seem to have us stuck in a net. Our problems become far more worst than now. We never gave up hope and faith in God even when we had broke down and felt like givi g up. We know God. will get us through and bless us for our faithfulness. Please pray for me and my family. My prayers go to all anyone who need a inspirational word in faith. God bless.

Lashae,

Wanted you to know that I prayed for you and your family today, and specifically that all would go well with the soon to arrive baby. I don’t know if you’ve ever prayed scripture before? It can be comforting and helpful when we’re hurting and finding the right words to pray a little difficult. You may already be familiar with these verses, but thought they might encourage you today, and that you could use them as a prayer. This is from Psalm 40 which David wrote.

“But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, ‘Great is the Lord!’ As for me, I am poor and needy, but the Lord takes thought for me. You are my help and my deliverer; do not delay, O my God!” (Psalm 40:16-17, ESV)
