Psalms — Psalm 54 – All Troubles!

Day 2624: Finish the year strong – avoid letting the ‘tyranny of the urgent’ be in control!

Scripture: Save me, O God, by Your name, and vindicate me by Your power. Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth. For strangers have risen against me and violent men have sought my life; they have not set God before them. Selah.

Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is the sustainer of my soul. He will recompense the evil to my foes; destroy them in Your faithfulness. Willingly I will sacrifice to You; I will give thanks to Your name, O Lord, for it is good.

For He has delivered me from all trouble, and my eye has looked with satisfaction upon my enemies. Psalm 54

Thoughts/questions: For He has delivered me from all trouble – ALL trouble!!! Someday in our future the light will come on as to the ‘all’ in this Psalm! The trouble our senses don’t even recognize often surrounds us or threatens us and will be revealed to us in heaven. At that time the impact of this phrase will become known, and we will be thankful for God’s deliverance.

But today let us awaken to the unknown. May we make it a practice to regularly pray a prayer of thanksgiving for ‘all’ the unknown trouble God has delivered us from that very day! There will be lots of other things to be thankful for in heaven, so let’s be thankful TODAY, acknowledging the words of this Psalm as truth!

Suggested prayer: Father God, help my faith to extend into the unknown . . .
