When My Heart Is Faint

When My Heart  Is Faint

We all have overwhelming needs  in our lives.     There are so many different situations  that can make us long  for a safe place  to rest.     King David  had many such times,  so he prayed  in Psalm 61:1-4,

Hear my cry,  O God;
Give heed  to my prayer.  

From the end  of the earth  I call  to You  when my heart  is faint;
Lead me  to the rock  that is higher  than I.
For you have been  a refuge  for me,
A tower  of strength  against the enemy. 

Let me dwell  in Your tent forever;
Let me take refuge  in the shelter  of Your wings.     Selah.

Whether it’s  an “enemy”  trying  to do us in  —  a physical calamity  —  a job loss,  or whatever,  we do need  to turn  to the LORD  for the refuge  and strength  we need.

Some people seem  to not even think  of going  to God  for the help  they need.     They imagine  that they can do all things  for themselves  without God’s help.     But,  God wants us  to realize  our weaknesses  and ask Him  for help.     Not asking God  for help  is a total disregard  for His sovereign power  and love for us.

If pride  keeps one  from asking God  for help,  that person  will most likely harden their heart  against God’s love  and eventually lose  their chance  for eternal salvation.     That would be  a wasted life.

Life is so much better  when we know God’s love  and desire  to help us over the humps and bumps  of life.

Glad to have our Savior as our “refuge”  and “tower of strength”,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  thank You for listening  to our prayers  and keeping us safely close  to You.”

Love,
Margaret
