Make Us Glad
So many people have sent emails expressing a feeling of God being "up to something" in their lives right now.
The Body of Christ has a choice to make, individually and as a whole: Will I (We) serve Him and obey God's instruction to me (Us)...even when it doesn't make sense?
I love that we have the Bible, the living active word of God, to show us how to make the choices at the crossroads in our lives.
I also love how David and other Psalmists were examples of the fact that sometimes--we just need to cry "Uncle"!
"HOW LONG WILL IT BE...MAKE US GLAD...LET THE FAVOR OF THE LORD BE UPON US!"
David walked closely enough to the LORD that he (David) was able to run to God and pray during bad, hurt, lonely, weary, frustrating times as well as in the good times.
Several friends on our ministry site, are facing a crossroads right now and are ready to pray Psalm 90. In particular, verses13-17.
13 Relent, O LORD! How long will it be?
Have compassion on your servants.
14 Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15 Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16 May your deeds be shown to your servants,
your splendor to their children.
17 May the favor [b] of the Lord our God rest upon us;
establish the work of our hands for us—
yes, establish the work of our hands.
Simply put...David cried "UNCLE!"
I love how he is asking that God show him now as many good days as he has seen bad.
Do you feel free to ask this of your Father?
"Make Us Glad"!
We trust YOU as we make our decisions concerning worship, family, work, ministry, relationships, finances, our churches, our schools, housing, health and any other concern where we need a clear path to take.
Standing at the crossroads;we ask for your will to be done in the Body of Believers reading this, individually and as the Church.
May we find favor with You, Our Lord.
In Jesus Holy name,
How may we pray for you?
