12 God, don’t distance yourself from me!
My God, hurry to help me!
These words were spoken by David (and penned) and if you read the preceding verses you will see him saying:
5 For you are my hope, Adonai Elohim,
in whom I have trusted since I was young.
6 From birth I have relied on you;
it was you who took me from my mother’s womb.
7 To many, I am an amazing example;
but you are strong protection for me.
8 My mouth is full of praise for you,
filled with your glory all day long.
You see even the most faithful in the course of living life have doubts and fears to process; even the most faithful need to be reminded, comforted and strengthened to move forward with ADONAI:
5 . . . for God himself has said, “I will never fail you or abandon you.” 6 Therefore, we say with confidence,
“Adonai is my helper; I will not be afraid —
what can a human being do to me?”
6 Be strong, be bold, don’t be afraid or frightened of them, for Adonai your God is going with you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.”
And with this I say process those doubts and fears with His promise and YOU will make this day just fine, even better than fine – WELL.
Thank You, ABBA, our ADONAI. Thank You for encouragement and Your promise that You will never leave us or forsake us; and as to today with Your Help, we will do this day well to the glory of our Savior and Lord JESUS the CHRIST. And in our doing well we entrust our family, our friends, our acquaintances as well as those who oppose us; we commend them to You for Your blessings, for healing, strengthening, forgiveness and grace, for whatever they need to bring them to peace and completion in JESUS. Amen and amen.
