Glory Seed Devotional’s, 2017: Anticipating and Experiencing Jehovah-Jireh…
Lessons on Living from the book of Psalms…
“Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am languishing; heal me, O Lord, for my bones are troubled. My soul also is greatly troubled. But you, O Lord—how long? Turn, O Lord, deliver my life; save me for the sake of your steadfast love.” (Psalm 6:2–4, ESV)
”…For my bones are troubled…” Because I have two artificial hips I limp my way through life so today’s scripture has a familiar ring to me. However, as I reflect on the ways I have been blessed I can honestly say, “Thank God for troubled bones.” Because God has ministered to me though my troubled bones, therefore I KNOW Jesus will minister to my troubled soul. What’s my biggest Jesus blocker? Impatience! But because I can no longer walk at a fast pace God continues to discipline me to have patience and I am getting better.
How about you? What maladies have or are troubling you? What ever they are – no matter how devastating they may seem the ministry of Jesus will turn lumps of coal into spiritual diamonds. I know this to be true from personal experience and because, “The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord accepts my prayer.” (Psalm 6:9, ESV) What God did for David he did for me and what God did for me he’ll do for you!
God wants to bless you in ways that make not now seem clear you only need to place your trust in him. The good news is God gives us the trust-ability we need to trust in him! “Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” (John 16:24, ESV)
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all today and everyday as you place your trust in God.
Grace and PEACE,
