Personal Conversations

Today's reading: Psalm 143:1-12

David had a personal and intimate relationship with God, which is precisely what we see throughout Psalm 143. David is distressed. He's weary. And in this dark and needy state, he pours out his heart to God, looking fully and with confident expectation to Him for his support, provision and direction.

Is it your practice to lay everything out on the table before God when you pray? When you talk candidly and honestly with God, how does it influence your attitude and mindset? How does it impact your relationship with God? Tami

What really stood out for me in this passage is David asking God to save him, he says for your sake god preserve my life. He puts God first. He reminds me of Jesus praying to God "to remove the pain of the cross not as Jesus' will but as God's will". That's why Jesus taught us to pray, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven".
We must always put God first. Remember verse 2, "no one living is righteous", we are all sinners and need God's salvation to cleanse us.

I'm so grateful that we can speak openly and candidly with our Creator. Even more, I'm thankful that He doesn't just heart, but He's eager to hear and to respond.

Although at times I feel beset by enemies, God promises to destroy the adversaries of my soul, because I am His servant.
