Psalm 9:9-10, “The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.”
That word, oppressed means:
Simply put, when we know our God and are familiar with His name, we can trust Him because He won’t forsake those who seek Him. Is God familiar with your voice? Do you know Him? Not just know about Him, but are you familiar with His name, all of His names? Do you know Him as Provider? Healer? Redeemer? Transformer? Deliverer? Peace giver? Savior? Helper? Counselor? Father? Breasty One? All Sufficient One? There are countless names because He is everything you have ever needed or will need. What a wonderful God we serve.
Oh Father, I’m so thankful that I can come to You when I’m downhearted, lonely or in despair. I’m so thankful that when I call on You, You’re right there to comfort, keep and protect me. Thank You for watching over our sons and daughters, our granddaughters and grandsons. Thank you for giving them rest, wisdom and protection. You’re not a phone call away, You’re as close as the mention of Your name. What a wonderful, wonderful relief from everything that weighs me down. I love you Lord and I yield myself to your good pleasure today. It’s in Jesus Name, Amen.
