Discussion for Psalms 86:1

  • Blessing on Psalms 86:1
    I think there is a relationship between David and the Lord, that is why he was so bold to say bow down thine ear and hear me. He knows the God he is serving as the only One who can save and deliver him from his condition and at the same time who can provide for his need. So likewise we as a Christian must have a healthy, holy and righteous relationship with our Maker, our Creator who knows everything about us. Also, acknowledge Him in all we do, seek Him in all our troubles, afflictions and needs. Is not when we are in trouble or in need that we have to seek Him but in all our ways as Pro 3 6 says in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.
