Focus Chapters:

  • Psalms 92-97

 

Standout Verse(s):

Psalms 94:18-‬19 NLT

I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord , supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.

 

Observation (s):

  1. The psalmist cried to the Lord when he begun to fall untentionally before the wicked. Due to His unfailing love, God supported him.

    I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord , supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.

  2. God’s offer of comfort restored the psalmist’s hope and cheer, overcoming the doubts that filled the psalmist’s mind.

    I cried out, “I am slipping!” but your unfailing love, O Lord , supported me. When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer.

     

Application:

Slip is defined as unintentionally losing one’s footing. The psalmist unintentionally lost his footing as wicked and evildoers tried to overcome him. Similarly, we often unintentionally lose our footing as we navigate the negativity, wickedness and evildoers of our lives. The good news is that God is a constant support that will keep us standing despite the dark winds that try to blow us over. He, as our support, is willing to bear our weight and keep us upright.

I once experienced a stormy season in which I felt like all hope was lost. I felt downtrodden and beaten. Like the psalmist, my mind was riddled with doubts. There was nothing else I could do. For me, an independent person, this was a hard pill to swallow. In the midst of my despair, backed into a corner and overwhelmed, I cried out to God. And do you know what? He heard and supported me. As I stood in a corner, crying my eyes out heart, I felt a pair of arms wrap around me and I felt an overwhelming peace spreading through my soul for the first time in weeks. I was filled with hope and cheer, although the situation was not fully resolved. God restored me for the next few rounds and eventually I, through God’s protection and strength, overcame.

In seasons like that, it is hard to not acknowledge that my redeemer liveth. One thing is certain! God is a constant support when dark seasons try to weigh us down. As the songwriter says, “In sorrow, He is my comfort. In trouble, He is my stay. He tells me, every care on Him to roll…”

Bible in 365 Days – Day 131

DAY 131.png

Focus Chapters:

  • Psalms 39-41
  • Psalms 53
  • Psalms 55
  • Psalms 58

 

Standout Verse(s):

Psalms 39:6-7 NLT

We are merely moving shadows,
and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.
We heap up wealth,
not knowing who will spend it.
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.

 

Observation (s):

  1. If there is no time in our schedule for God, all our busy rushing will be for nothing.

    We are merely moving shadows,
    and all our busy rushing ends in nothing
    .

  2. We shouldn’t place all our focus on hoarding wealth when tomorrow is not promised to any man.

    We heap up wealth,
    not knowing who will spend it.

  3. David’s hope was in God.

    And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
    My only hope is in you.

     

Application:

Our riches and busy schedules count for nothing when our hope is not in God.

You spend approximately 12 hours (work, preparation and transit time) working each day. When you are not working, you are off undertaking some worldly cause. However, how is your spiritual life? How much time do you set aside for God? Is all your busy rushing dedicated to a result of nothing or have you placed your hope in God and dedicated some of that time to Him and the activities He has purposed you to undertake? When you make the time for Him, trust and believe that He will ensure that there is enough time to complete the necessary things of the world.

Are you a money hoarder? You spend so much time collecting money. Storing it away for tomorrow, when tomorrow is guaranteed to no man. When was the last time you trusted God to take care of tomorrow and put some of that hoarded money towards a cause He has purposed you to undertake?

Don’t let all your time and monetary investments amount to nothing. Put your hope in God. Choose your monetary and time investments wisely.
