Not in Me

Today's reading: Psalm 44:1-26

Psalm 44 is an earnest prayer offered to God during a time of distress and oppression. The Psalmist begins his conversation with God by looking back at what God has done. Next he moves on to tell God how, despite the intense adversity and disgrace that has come upon them, he is committed to following Him. The psalmist then concludes his prayer asking God for deliverance.

I was drawn to the words and message conveyed in verses 6-8. My heart was moved by how in the middle of intense distress, the psalmist remains unmoved and proclaims to God his steadfast trust in Him.

"For not in my bow do I trust, nor can my sword save me. But you have saved us from our foes and have put to shame those who hate us. In God we have boasted continually, and we will give thanks to your name forever. (vs. 6-8).

What battles are you going through right now? Have you, are you and/or will you turn your situation over to God and tell Him "I trust in You"? How does praising God in and through your storms impact your attitude and thinking, and help you stay the course? Tami

Because God never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He can be trusted to do what is right for me whatever the
circumstances. He is GOD, my Father and Lord. And that will never
change.
