Never alone (Psalm 108-110)

“For he stands at the right hand of the needy one, to save him from those who condemn his soul to death.”  Psalm 109: 31

For the past few days I have been seeing this random post on Facebook, from a person who keeps posting, “No one thinks I am beautiful.”  As I considered this post, I began to think about the people who are either in this person’s life or are not in this person’s life.  I thought about whether this person was hearing voices inside that was apparently pulling this person even farther into darkness.

Consider what great benefits you and I have in God’s presence in our lives.  Psalm 108-110 teaches us of the great benefits of having God’s presence with us:

  • In Psalm 108 we are reminded that no matter how many enemies we have, the presence of God guarantees our victory when the trial is over, Vs: 13.
  • In Psalm 109 we are reminded that no matter how little we have of this worlds goods, our God’s presence is His guarantee of our daily provision, Vs: 31.
  • In Psalm 110 we are reminded that our greatest need for God is in our salvation, Vs: 3-5.

In each of these chapters we are brought out of any moment of darkness by His presence which is ever with us, Hebrews 13:6.  I want to challenge each who read this blog to both celebrate and to cling to God’s presence.  I want to challenge each who read this blog to cast off the voices of the enemy that would rob you of the joy of the Lord’s presence.  Finally I want to challenge you to speak of God’s desire to be present in others lives.

At the table where you are eating, there is a person who needs help.  Where you buy your groceries is a person who needs help.  When you are having fun there is someone watching who needs help. Even in a foreign land there are so many in the villages who have never heard these words, “Jesus saves.”
