Stormy Praise

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 119:105-112 (Nun)

Three times in eight verses labeled Nun, the psalmist references his difficult and problematic circumstances.

  • severely afflicted (vs. 107)
  • holds his life in his hands (vs. 109)
  • snares the wicked have laid for him (vs. 110)

"Accept my freewill offerings of praise, O LORD, and teach me your rules" (vs. 108).

It's pretty clear that things aren't going well in this man's life. Even so, he doesn't let his difficult circumstances consume his thoughts or shake his foundation. Instead he's intentional about remaining focused on God and giving his time and affection to Him. The psalmist's reaching out to God with his proclamation of praise in verse 108 spoke loudly to my heart. I am thankful for this example and the reminder it provides that we must be diligent to seek after and praise God in all circumstances.

"How are you seeking after God in your current circumstances? What impact does choosing to praise God in and through our "storms" have on our attitudes and actions? How does it impact our relationship with God?" (vs. 108). Tami

Honestly, I wouldn't be able to function right now if not for the grace of God. These months have been difficult, but He's still good.

In praise, we draw close to God, no matter our circumstances.
