Answer Me When I Call
Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have given me relief when I was in distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
O men, how long shall my honor be turned into shame? How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? But know that the Lord has set apart the godly for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him.
Be angry, and do not sin; ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord.
There are many who say, "Who will show us some good? Lift up the light of your face upon us, O Lord!" You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
What would You have me learn from this passage? This psalm speaks of Your kind heart and tells me that You will hear me when I call to You. It cautions me to not seek the lies as those men on D.C. have been spreading. God, You have set me apart for Yourself. You want me to be angry but not sin. You want me to ponder and reflect things in my heart. And most of all, You want me to trust You. God, I am blessed because You have made provision for me and my joy in that IS greater than those that have never wanted for anything. I pray that You continue Your provisions for my family. Because You do provide, I do have peace in You. Help me feel safe in You.
In Jesus' Name,
