Troubled Times

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: 1 Samuel 21:1-15; Psalm 56:1-13

As we arrive at 1 Samuel 21, we get a picture of David's first of many days running from Saul. He's in distress with no food or weapons and even goes to the Philistine city of Gath. The situation in which he finds himself is scary, dangerous and awful. Yet through it all, David continues to trust God and look to Him alone. We see this wonderfully in Psalm 56, which David wrote in response to his experience in Gath. I love the message found in verses 8-11 and how they demonstrate that God's peace can be ours in the middle of our chaos.

How do you respond when life seems to be spinning out of control? Do you believe that God is for you ("This I know, that God is for me." Psalm 56:9)? What's one thing you learned from David in Psalm 56? Tami

Tami, I appreciate your daily studies!
Daily I should remind myself that God is for me and when those troubled times comes and come they will, Jesus told us that they would! In John 16:33 " I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”

I am not always in control, but God always is, He is faithful!

In Psalms 56, like you,Tami I love the message of vs.8-11 and I would include verses 3&4 too!!
"When I am afraid,
I put my trust in you.

In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?

It is wonderful that David has been in the habit of praise the Lord all along and when troubles come he KNOWS Who he can trust!!

Tami, I appreciate and rejoice how you are using your talent to serve the Lord! I pray that many more are being blessed by your blog! God bless you!!
