Psalm 38 – God is Love

I don’t know about you guys (and gals) but it seems as if though David keeps on asking God to deliver him from some kind of issue, pain, or enemy. So far there have been many pleads for rescue and protection from evil. He also writes about feeling in despair contrasted with a quiet faith in deliverance. What about you? What has your life experience been like, can you relate to David?

Do not abandon me, O Lord.
Do not stand at a distance, my God.
22 Come quickly to help me,
O Lord my savior.

The book of Psalms is quickly becoming one of my favorite books of the Bible. It pretty much speaks for itself. Often times you can just make his own words yours and step into his shoes. Which reminds me of another text found in Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.”

Nothing is hidden from God. So go ahead, He’s waiting for you to share your most intimate secrets with Him. He’s waiting to heal you and work to restore to what you were made to be. And there we find the beauty of the Gospel, that you are perfectly known yet perfectly loved.

“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.”

  1. I have been spending time in the Psalms, too, and it struck me that they really are a letter that Jesus sent to Himself a thousand years before He came to earth as the Messiah. Many of the texts directly relate to events leading up to and surrounding the crucifixion, but many more relate to the lonely path the Messiah walked throughout His life and the plotting and scheming He constantly faced.

    • That’s a really interesting point I had never really thought about! Thanks for sharing. It will definitely give us new insights as we continue to explore the Psalms! We hope to hear more from you soon. Blessings.

    • Amen to that! God is good and his blessings can be used for good! We hope that you continue to read along with us everyday and continue to share this page with others. Blessings to you and your family. 😀
