“Hear, Yahweh, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Preserve my soul, for I am godly. You, my God, save your servant who trusts in you. Be merciful to me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to the soul of your servant, for to you, Lord, do I lift up my soul. For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; abundant in loving kindness to all those who call on you. Hear, Yahweh, my prayer. Listen to the voice of my petitions. In the day of my trouble, I will call on you, for you will answer me.”
Lord, daily I fail and fall short, I cannot be the man you have called me to be. I sin, I repent, You forgive, I rejoice, I sin…
It is a never-ending story, I fall short of the Glory of God. I am not worthy of Your love and grace. Yet, You are ever faithful.
Lord, our needs are great today, please forgive my stupidity, and supply our needs by Your riches in glory. Give Your angels charge over us, protect and draw us under Your wings.
I love and need You Lord. Help me, answer our prayer, You are our Shepard, we Shall Not Want. You said it, I believe it, now I need to experience it. (Sadly, once again).
Thanks for visiting,

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.

The first couple of verses seem like a contradiction: poor and needy and yet godly. We might assume the godly are healthy, wealthy and happy. But as Jesus said, “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of God”. It’s when we realise our spiritual poverty that we can find the spiritual riches of a godly life in Christ our Saviour.
Thanks for the post 🙂
