Encouraging Words

Encouragement for weary pilgrims comes in many forms. We can be certain that our unchanging, faithful God will choose various and sundry means by which to lift His beloved children. The ultimate source, without question, is His inerrant word, the Bible.

Today I was enriched as I read Psalm 70. David, the psalmist, was desperate for God's intervention and wanted His help immediately. He writes in verse 1,
"Hasten, O God, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me." He then closes with another petition for quick aid, "come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay." That was my heart's cry this morning as I sought the Lord's help.

God's timing is always right. We seek a quick response. He often chooses to let us wait. Regardless, He is passionately concerned with our spiritual wellbeing and will come to our aid in His perfect way and time. We need to trust Him.
