TUESDAY 4TH AUGUST, 2020
THEME: Take It To The Lord 2
PASSAGE: Psalm 88:1-18
HYMN: MHB 421 “I AM so glad that our Father in heaven”
MEMORY VERSE: Psalm 88:9 “My eye wastes away because of affliction. Lord, I have called daily upon You; I have stretched out my hands to You.”
Psalm 88 has been described as “the saddest Psalm “in the Psalter. The man is in the slough of despond with no hope. Three times the man was apparently in the shadow of death, but each time he cried to his God for help. Everything appeared collapsing for him and there seemed to be no hope coming out! He had prayed repeatedly, but nothing happened. He, however, did not stop praying to the Almighty God.
The man, whose case was like those abandoned on the battlefield with the dead bodies here and there, asked eight questions from God in his distress in verses 10-14. He even accused God of being responsible for his sad situation but this will not prevent God from answering his prayers. Our God is full of mercy and is compassionate.
No hard time remains forever! Every problem has an expiring date. All one needs to do is to continue to seek the face of the Lord. He decided to make his final appeal in verses 13-18. In the midst of problems or sorrow, the Bible says you should humble yourself and seek God’s presence. 1Pet. 5:6 says “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you.”
Do you believe you can be exalted by God? If you believe, don’t allow the trials of life to take you away from God. Run to God who will quench every physical and spiritual fire tormenting you now. Beloved, those who take their matters to God always walk free at the end. And today, your case is settled in your favour in Jesus’ name. Amen!
When you take your case to God, be rest assured it is solved. Today, child of God your matter is settled, and rejoice evermore!
PRAYER: Dear Lord, only You can do what people cannot do. Do away with every threatening situation in my life and deliver me from all evil shackles in Jesus’ name. Amen.
