Message of the Day: God’s Acts In the Past, Bring Hope For the Present, and Will Instruct and Guide Us In The Future.
“Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground.” (Psalm 143:10, NASB)
There are times we thought God might be using our enemies and troubles to punish us for our sins. We know for a fact that we, like others, are sinners, and we cannot escape God’s punishment if He decides to act.
This is what the psalmist felt, so he throws himself entirely on the mercy of God and asks for forgiveness and deliverance. He tells God about his predicament, how he was forced to hide in darkness in the cave. Some say that this psalm belong to the time when David was fleeing from Saul while others say that it belongs to the period when he was being pursued by Absalom.
Just like David, we can think of God’s mighty acts in the past and pray that God will save us again. However, what is more important is our willingness to listen to God’s instructions after having rescued by Him.
Let us not forget to go back to God and thank Him for rescuing us, for providing our needs and for answering our prayers. Most of all, may all God’s work in us cause us to humbly obey His instruction.
