This Psalm was written by David. It was written at a difficult time in his life. Saul, his arch enemy, had sent men to kill him. The murderous intent of King Saul against David was openly revealed. These men were watching David day and night. They were monitoring his house, looking for an opportunity to step in and kill him. In all if this, David teaches us, by example, that we can know that the Lord will undertake, we can trust in Him, and we can know the Lord’s strength in our lives and situations. Things may appear challenging in your private world, but the Lord will come and strengthen you. Things may appear challenging in your country, but the Lord will come and strengthen you. Things may appear challenging in the world, but the Lord will come and strengthen you.
WE ALL NEED THE LORD’S STRENGTH
Each and every one of us need the strength that comes from God. We were not designed to do it (life) in our own strength. There are times when we are weak, there are times when we feel desperate, pressurised and discouraged. There is nothing unique about this condition, it is common to all of mankind. I remember speaking to someone years ago who was going through a lot of challenges. I asked her: ‘How do you cope?’ She retorted and said: ‘Don’t worry about me, I’ve got broad shoulders!’ Having ‘broad shoulders’ can be helpful, but in the end of day it can wear us down and make us weak. How we need His help and His strength in our daily lives. Sometimes we simply need some ‘Divine Intervention’. I know that I need the strength that God offers, and I am sure the same is true for you.
