Total Reliance

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 119:145-152 (Qoph)

When we experience trials and we and/or our families are in distress, there's no better response than turning to God. The psalmist is totally dependent on God and presents the entirety of his situation to Him, holding nothing back ("with my whole heart I cry"). He boldly asks God to help and save him, while dedicating and spending time meditating on God's Word in order to keep a constant focus on God (rising before dawn and being awake before the watches of the night).

When you feel distressed and overcome by your circumstances, how do you respond? Do you talk with God and give all your stress, worries and burdens over to Him? How does relying on God give you strength? Tami

Tami,Oh that this could be said of me!
David had total reliance on the Lord. After I fret for some time , I finally surrender all or almost all to let the Lord take control of the situation which is really out of my hands. If it were possible that I could handle it, I KNOW that God can and does a better job than me to solve the issue or problem every time and does the BEST!!

When I rely complete on God for my answers, He does it right everytime. Sometimes (correction at all times),I need to wait and let go and let God do His perfect work.
