A CALL FOR HELP
You scan down the page and see a familiar chapter....
O God, listen to my cry!
Hear my prayer!
From the ends of the earth I cry to You for help
When my heart is overwhelmed.
Lead me to the towering rock of safety,
For You are my safe refuge,
A fortress where my enemies cannot reach me.
Let me live forever in Your sanctuary,
Safe beneath the shelter of Your wings!
The NKJV version says it like this;
Hear my cry, O God;
Attend to my prayer.
When my heart is overwhelmed;
For You have been a shelter to me;
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.
Both versions are good but there is something about how the NKJV says the last line in verse 4;
I . will . trust
There it is. Will you trust?! Can you sit there and read those verses and not trust....when you know....He has been that Shelter....that Rock....that Strong Tower....when you have been so overwhelmed with life in the past?! If you can't trust in Him....then be done with it and just walk away. But if some small part of you still can....then read on....
I wait quietly before God,
For my victory comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
My fortress where I will never be shaken.
There it is....your victory comes from Him! Can it be any plainer? When everything seems to be wrong....HE....GOD....is the One who can change it all for you. Make everything make sense again. God is the one who will give you the strength to be victorious in this life. To keep on going whatever the circumstances are. You are nothing without Him.
"until we see JESUS....face to face"
