The psalmist reveals how he knows and sees God in this Qoph portion of Psalm 119:145-152. He is struggling with persecution and fears for his life, but he stands on the truth of God’s Word and character. Read this section from the Message and let it speak to you. 145-152 I call out at the top of my lungs,
“God! Answer! I’ll do whatever you say.” The psalmist knew God is Accessible.
I called to you, “Save me
so I can carry out all your instructions.” He knew God is a Savior.
I was up before sunrise,
crying for help, hoping for a word from you.
I stayed awake all night,
prayerfully pondering your promise. He knew God was with him 24/7.
In your love, listen to me;
in your justice, God, keep me alive. He knew God listens.
As those out to get me come closer and closer,
they go farther and farther from the truth you reveal; He knew God
But you’re the closest of all to me, God, knew his enemies.
and all your judgments true.
I’ve known all along from the evidence of your words God and His Word are
that you meant them to last forever. eternal and trustworthy.
Do your words reflect what you know and believe about God? Is He Accessible to you 24/7? Do you feel that you can call upon Him to save you and preserve you in the difficulties of life? Do you know that God is omniscient and knows what you face each day? Do you stand on His Word with confidence and believe that His Word is eternal and will last throughout the generations?
The psalmist was confident God would answer as he laid his heart open before Him? Will you present your difficulties and fears before God today and call upon Him for help? He will answer and bring you peace and comfort as you cling to the truth of who God is and what He can do. God is totally trustworthy and keeps His promises.
Blessings today as you cling to God.
