Cry To God For Help // Thursday, September 18

Posted: Thursday, September 18

One Year Bible reading Guide:

Isaiah 28:14-30:11
Galatians 3:23-4:31
Psalm 62:1-12
Proverbs 23:19-21

 

Verse of the day:

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. (Psalms 62:5)

 

We’re going to play a little game today—a little social experiment. Below I’ve listed real social media updates from my Facebook newsfeed. I then paired each update with an excerpt from Psalm 62. The similarities are uncanny…

 

Anonymous // “Really? REALLY? We are not friends. Oh right, YOU DON’T CARE.”

Psalm 62:3a // “So many enemies against one man—all of them trying to kill me.”

 

Anonymous // “Been really sick and not sure what is going on…”

Psalm 62:3b // “To them I’m just a broken-down wall or a tottering fence.”

 

Anonymous // “I guess its time to call it quits. You win. hope your happy…”

Psalm 62:4a // “They plan to topple me from my high position. They delight in telling lies about me.”

 

Anonymous // “What a miserable night... Just want to fall asleep already…”

Psalm 62:4b // ”They praise me to my face but curse me in their hearts.”

 

Here’s a simple question. As a Christian, should you cry out for help? Absolutely. The more complicated question is this: who are you crying out to? David had no problem verbalizing his languish, but let us not forget the context. Psalm 62 is not a social media update, phone call, text, or workplace discussion; it’s a prayer. David is casting his misfortune at the feet of the only perfect and sovereign God. Go ahead. Cry out for help today; cry out to God.
