A prayer of David.
1 Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;
listen to my cry.
Hear my prayer—
it does not rise from deceitful lips.
2 Let my vindication come from you;
may your eyes see what is right.
3 Though you probe my heart,
though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;
my mouth has not transgressed.
4 Though people tried to bribe me,
I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
through what your lips have commanded.
5 My steps have held to your paths;
my feet have not stumbled.
6 I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
7 Show me the wonders of your great love,
you who save by your right hand
those who take refuge in you from their foes.
8 Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
9 from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
from my mortal enemies who surround me.
10 They close up their callous hearts,
and their mouths speak with arrogance.
11 They have tracked me down, they now surround me,
with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground.
12 They are like a lion hungry for prey,
like a fierce lion crouching in cover.
13 Rise up, Lord, confront them, bring them down;
with your sword rescue me from the wicked.
14 By your hand save me from such people, Lord,
from those of this world whose reward is in this life.
May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies;
may their children gorge themselves on it,
and may there be leftovers for their little ones.
15 As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face;
when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.
I guess what I got from this, is that we should always be trusting in God, that he can bring us out of messes. All of our walks are different, and we pray and trust God for many reasons. After a lot of emotional struggle with my attention seeking problem... I had to trust God, that He will help me get through it. It is not over yet, but I trust Him that He knows what He is doing.
Yesterday I was sick, and prayed to Him for my back to stop being sore, and just to feel better in general. It didn't make sense to me that I had caught this illness, just before holiday club.. and it didn't make sense to me, that God was still letting me go through pain, even after I prayed. I think that God's answer was "not yet" Because I soon went to the doctors and after taking pain killers and anti-bio-tics, I felt much better. I had a wonderful sleep last night, and I now trust Him, that I will feel even by tomorrow, so that I can lead at holiday club! God is definitely trust worthy!
