Calling On God

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Psalm 83:1-18

The Israelites are in a dangerous situation, one where they don't have the physical resources or power to adequately defend themselves. So they do all that they are able to do--they petition God to act on their behalf and on behalf of His mighty name.

What a good reminder that regardless of our circumstances, we are not powerless when we are in a relationship with God! As a follower of Christ, we have direct access to the God of the universe. We can bring our petitions before Him with confidence knowing that He is in control of all things.

How does talking with God about circumstances that you can't control help your thinking, emotions and attitude? Do your prayers include asking God to contend with sinful situations in the world around you? Tami

Yes, it is wonderful assurance to know that we can talk to God about everything and to know that He can help us and can answer our prayers according to His will.

What a wonderful Savior Who knows all about me and still loves me!

I do not always succeed in turning my worries over to God entirely--yet when I do, I experience a sense of peace that encompasses my entire self, body, soul and spirit, that sense of peace that truly does pass all understanding. The world does not have that consolation--and it shows!
