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 indeed 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 past goodness to you impact you in the present? How can and will you use your current situation to proclaim God's goodness and be a witness to others? Tami

Oh dear, I need more practice in praising during difficult times
Praising the Lord helps me to trust, hope and love Him more even in old age!
This is my prayer that God will use my current situation to witness for the Lord of His goodness and faithfulness to me.

What a powerful message to us as we age. We suffer, our enemies taunt us, yet God will prevail, and we will live long enough to share that with the next generation. What could be more victorious? I praise God--my enemies are already defeated.
