Our faithful Ally
Updated: Sep 8, 2022
My previous post was about choosing to trust God with every area of our life. Today, I will share a Psalm David wrote during his time of trusting God. May the Holy Spirit bring understanding and revelation to us as we read His Word.
Psalm 131:1-3 AMP
1.LORD, MY heart is not proud, nor my eyes haughty; Nor do I involve myself in great matters,
Or in things too difficult for me.
2.Surely I have calmed and quieted my soul; Like a weaned child [resting] with his mother,
My soul is like a weaned child within me [composed and freed from discontent].
3. O Israel, hope in the LORD
From this time forth and forever.
When you read this Scripture, it is clear David had "childlike faith" as he leaned on God's love as an ally to carry him through every life's circumstance. David says he was like a weaned child resting with his mother and not concerning himself in things too difficult for him. I also want to believe that he did not write this Psalm on a picnic as he was sipping some tea. He was anointed and chosen by God to become King and spent many years actively fighting his enemies that opposed his destiny as King. However, David trusted God to keep him safe through it all by doing his part which was actively fighting his enemies in battle while at the same time constantly engaging with God through prayer as portrayed in the above Psalm.
Ephesians 6:12-13 AMP: 12.For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness against the spiritual wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. 13. Therefore, put on the complete armor of God, so that you will be able to [successfully] resist and stand your ground in the evil day [of danger], and having done everything [that the crisis demands], to stand firm [in your place, fully prepared, immovable and victorious].
Like David, we sometimes face circumstances opposing our destiny. This may not be the time to be passive but rather actively pursue the enemy with everything that the crisis demands as an act of our faith in God with the assured end of God's victory in mind, our forever faithful Ally.
As a reminder, I end with this Word written by Apostle Paul in Romans 8:38-39 KJV;
38.For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
