    Thank you Lord for hearing my cry and answering my prayers. I am sorry I let you down by not having faith. I tried but was too overwhelmed. Hopefully you will teach me how to do things differently.

    "Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me." Psalms 27:7 Walking with God in this present evil world we will have enemies and foes, wicked seeking to eat us up like bread. Jesus has said it, that in this world we have tribulation. All the holy Elect Saints from ancient times died waiting on the Promise and not yet seeing it fulfilled. Singing praises when it is a sacrifice will often be the way we are called to go. We who believe in the Lord Jesus and love Him with all our heart, call upon Him constantly for mercy. That is our appointed way in this world and that is the way He has said, "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee." Psalms show the inner life of Christ, and all who are His.
  • Mark R
    I just like how the psalmist desires a complete relationship with the Father. We can see the brilliance of God's Grace just being a encouragement for the psalmist's suffering of persecution. Victory can be clearly seen in the heart of the psalmist as he speaks about the strength he has attained in the Lord. Oh my friends it's just wonderful having such a great Savior in Christ!

    Our God is greater than our circumstances,and has a place for us,where our desire is to seek him,so we may dwell,behold and inquire.While not without troubles in this world,we are fastened to the rock(Lord Jesus),never to be forsaken.We love him, because he first loved us.1John4:19 That's grace.Only believers have true life,and we hear/see God working in them,an example to us to strengthen us here

    I am so thankful for this chapter in Psalm. I memorized it last year and have been able to use it to have courage as God has led my husband to become the Pastor of a small struggling church. It is also helping me through an illness my daughter has as well as a tumor that I have that is spiking my blood pressure up in sleep. Many things in this life are uncertain but the strength of God will endure
