When all seems against us

March 4th, 2012

I was reading Psalm 3.1-8 this morning. We see the words of Psalm 3 are basically King David’s cry out to God to protect him from his enemies and to vindicate him.

The background to the story is David’s son Absolom wanted to take over the throne and he had secretly been turning people against his father (2 Samuel 15).

I really like the way David looked to God in this situation. On the surface David could have taken his army and defeated those who rose up against him, but he chose to look to God as his protection and deliverer.

We can learn a lot from David. When all seems to be against us today – people and situations – we can sometimes fall into the trap of thinking God is against us and we have done wrong.

However, if we know we are right with God, we need to stay in faith and trust God will sort it out in time. Pray, trust, keep positive and wait on God for the outcome.

We know God is a good God and  “we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).

If you are going through a hard time today and it seems like everything is against you, remember that God is for you and in time He will sort things out as you stay in faith and trust in Him.

God Bless,

Dave
