In Trouble?

Thought For The Week 134

Doctors performing an operation

One morning, as I read the Word, I was overwhelmed by the thought, “Save us and help us…that those you love may be delivered” (Psalm 108:6, italics mine).  I’m always impressed by the absolute confidence David had in his relationship with Yahweh.  I mused over ‘those you love…’ Am I so confident?  Suddenly my heart surged up towards Yahweh, “Father, “I cried, “those you love are in trouble here; our Lydia is still so poorly!  You have brought her this far, please, deliver her.  Restore her to health and happiness, I pray!  Those you love cry to you for help, please be our Healer.”  A great sense of peace filled my heart and my thoughts were turned to another Psalm.

Sometime ago I was in a prayer meeting when the leader encouraged us all to personalise Psalm 91:14-15 and use it as a basis for prayer, confidence and comfort.  I did this eagerly, and rewrote it into my Prayer Diary, where it looks like this:

‘Because she loves me,’ says Yahweh,

‘I will rescue her;
    I will protect her, for she acknowledges my name.

 She will call on me, and I will answer her;
    I will be with her in trouble,
    I will deliver her and honour her.

In the aftermath of my heartfelt prayer for Lydia, I mused on these verses. Loving Yahweh does not, apparently, prevent us from needing to be rescued; nor does it stop us from getting into trouble!  But loving Him does make all His resources and promises available; a unique blessing poured out where love reigns.  “We love Him,” writes the apostle, “because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19; italics mine).

I'd like to suggest to you that a period of darkness in your experience doesn't necessarily mean you are out of Yahweh's will.
