Fridays Finale

Long enough, God
    you’ve ignored me long enough.
I’ve looked at the back of your head
    long enough. Long enough
I’ve carried this ton of trouble,
    lived with a stomach full of pain.
Long enough my arrogant enemies
    have looked down their noses at me.

Take a good look at me, God, my God;
    I want to look life in the eye,
So no enemy can get the best of me
    or laugh when I fall on my face.

I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms—
    I’m celebrating your rescue.
I’m singing at the top of my lungs,
    I’m so full of answered prayers. Psalm 13 MSG

There are times when we just cry out, lash out even, trying with everything in us to get Gods attention because we haven’t heard an answer. But He always answers! His Word says that if we call on Him, He will answer us and show us things we don’t know.

My favorite portion of this Psalm/prayer of Davids is the end;

I’ve thrown myself headlong into your arms—
    I’m celebrating your rescue.
I’m singing at the top of my lungs,
    I’m so full of answered prayers.

It’s the defining moment when David shifted his focus from the problem to the answer. When his anguish became a proclamation of victory. Total surrender. A child running to their father to fix the broken thing or kiss the booboo. The confident approach knowing there’s nothing He can’t do.

So my friend, as Friday is upon us and the struggle has been real all week long, run headlong into His arms and let Him hold you and give you the assurances you need to hear in your spirit today.

In my spirit I hear my mom singing, “Oh yes the answers on the way this I know. Jesus said it, I believe it and it’s so. Our Heavenly Father knows our need before we pray, and we can rest assured, the answers on the way.”

Have a blest week my friends!

Until Monday,

Sandy G
