Sustain Me

Today's reading: Psalm 119:113-120 (Samekh)

In Psalm 119:113-120 (Samekh), the psalmist is under attack and is speaking out against those who are acting sinfully. So as the psalmist talks with God, he contrasts himself to this group by repeatedly confirming his love of God and His Word. He then claims God as his shield and strength, calling on God to "Uphold me according to your promise, that I may live" (vs. 116) and to "Hold me up, that I may be safe..." (vs. 117).

Why is it important to tell God that you love Him and that you are grateful for His Word? What's one example of how God's Word has sustained you when you've come under attack, encountered difficulty or experienced loss? Tami

In any relationship, it's important for us to verbalize our love for one another. Why we sometimes think it different in regards to our relationship with the Lord is a mystery to me.

The latter half of this year has been enormously difficult for me. Yet, daily communion with God has kept me alive, well, and able to carry on though the difficulties and the pain. A friend of mine summed it up in a lyric to a song he wrote and recently released, "My faith has never been so weak, yet oh, so deeply rooted. It has to be to keep me free."

Lots of pain in watching my daughter as she strays--God's word is true and brings me back from the brink. I love her, but I cling to God and His word. In that I have full joy and hope in the future.
