“Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
Unless the Lord had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, Lord, supported me.
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” 🙏Psalm 94: 16-19
Peace and good to all.
If I may share my personal reflection on the above passage from the Book of Psalm.
When faced with a problem our first instinct is almost always to worry. We get uneasy, nervous or get scared especially when confronted with an event or something with an uncertain outcome. We have suddenly forgotten that when we are with God, we should worry no more. Faith. Have faith in Him who is the rock of your life.
The above verse is an assurance that God is faithful, that we should not give in to that uneasiness, to that worry or that unknown fear. When worry is too strong for us to take, have faith that God will extend his helping hand and, even when death is imminent, let’s remind ourselves that we are not alone. We have God, we have Jesus with us. God through the Holy Spirit will comfort us, He will tame our worried hearts. And, when we feel like we are slipping away, call on Him, for His love will save and support us. Praise to you my Lord and my God.
Establishing a relationship with God, thru His Son Jesus, is the key in everything. God will never force us to have a relationship with Him, but if we invite Him in our lives, if we make Him the stronghold of our lives, we will enjoy that kind of peace that no one and nothing in this world can give.
I was in the darkness once, but I did not allow my soul to dwell in silence. I accepted Jesus when the first opportunity came knocking in my heart. I accepted His help and, then believe me, I no longer feel that emptiness that I had before. He gave me peace of mind. He calmed my soul and I praise Him for that.
God be with us all.
