Grieved and Crushed

Psalm 34:15-18 scripture image

  • What are the details in the verses?
    • King David authored most of the Psalms. He wrote them as songs. Much like people write and sing songs today about their sorrows and joys; King David did the same.
    • Here, in these verses, I observe that King David is singing about the Lord watching and hearing the righteous in their sorrows and that the Lord is against the evil-doers and he will not remember the evil-doers. The Lord hears the righteous who cry out for help and hears them and delivers them out of their troubles.
    • The Lord is near the griefed and crushed in spirit.
  • What is God’s word saying to me?
    • I feel that God is reminding me that He is with me, near me, and hears my spirit-cries as well as when it is grieved. All I need to do is call out to Him, live right according to His living word, stay alert in prayer, and help the needy when the situation arises. Be alert!
    • What changes do I need to make?
      • Stop being bothered by worldly things. God is in control. It’s all part of His grand plan and purpose.
      • Be in His living word, daily. Let it speak to my spirit, mind, and soul.
      • Be teachable. Don’t be a know-it-all. There is always something new to learn and to unlearn.
    • What action do I need to take?
      • YEP! You guessed it! “Just Do It!”

Prayer: Dear Abba YAH, thank You for being near me and with me. I pray the same for the readers of this blog. I lift up everyone to You, YAH. There’s always someone who has needs. I lift all those needs up to You.  I also want to thank You for the blessings and promises You fulfill in our lives. Some go unnoticed by us. I just pray that we take stock and realize what You are doing in our lives. I praise, glorify, honor, and love You, YAH. In Jesus’ name, amen
