Psalm 142:7
Posted: Apr 27, 2011 in Uncategorized | 1 Comment |

S – “Bring me out of prison so I can thank you. The godly will crowd around me, for you are good to me.” – Psalm 142:7

O – This was David’s prayer after his epidode in the cave with King Saul. Saul had been chasing David throughout the entire country of Israel due to jeolosy. David found refuge in a cave in En Gedi which is in the southern part of Israel. David had the chance to kill saul and be done with him once and for he chose not to. Even though David had the legal right to due away with his problem, (Saul) he believed that God could handle his problems far better than he could himself. David had spent years running. He had no idea who he could trust. His prison was fear, insecurity, doubt that God could take care of him and loneliness. In God’s time, He delivered David out of that prison.

A – I find it very interesting that the first thing David thanks God for after God busts him out of his “prison” was godly friends. We have no idea just how valuable it is to have people in our lives that have our best interest at heart. So many times, we can feel as if we are on an Island. We feel that no one cares or notices what we are going through. I’m sure David felt that in His life. But once David learned to rely on God for everything He needed, God sent him what he craved………friends. We can see the goodness of God in the people that He brings along the way who help us and give us a shoulder to lean on.

P – Lord Jesus, I ask for your help in 2 things. 1st of all, send people into my life that will be a source of strength to me when I go through challenging moments. 2nd of all, help me to be that friend to someone else. Thank you that you send people to me when I need them the most and also for allowing me to be the answer to the prayer that someone is praying for friendship. Your grace is amazing and it overwhelms me everyday.
